AA Gill's final column for Gourmet Traveller

We mourn the loss of a treasured member of the Gourmet Traveller family who passed awayon December 10, 2016. British writer AA Gill was a contributor to the magazine from July 2004. Gill’s travel column was as insightful as it was witty, funny as it was thoughtful – he was without peer. This is the final piece he wrote for Gourmet Traveller; it appears in the December issue, 2016. - Anthea Loucas Bosha, Editor

Coconut crab and green mango salad

"This salad bursts with fresh, vibrant flavours and became a signature on my Paramount menus," says Christine Manfield. "I capitalised on using green mangoes in many dishes as they became more widely available. Blue swimmer crabs from South Australia have the most delicious sweet meat. It's best to buy them whole, cook them yourself and carefully pick the meat from the shell - a tedious task but it gives the best flavour. This entree also works well with spanner crab meat (you can buy this in packs ready cooked from reliable fishmongers). The sweetness of the crab, the richness of the fresh coconut and the sourness of green mango make a wonderful partnership. It's all about harmony on the palate and using the very best produce."

Slow-roasted pork shoulder panini with parsley mayo and pickled beetroot


Pickled beetroot is the perfect foil for shredded pork and crackling. Crack open a cold lager and lunch is served. You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.

You'll need

1 pork shoulder, bone in (2.5kg) ½ tsp ground fennel 6 crusty panini, to serve To serve: butter lettuce leaves (optional)   Pickled beetroot 4 beetroot 80 ml (1/3 cup) red wine vinegar 80 gm caster sugar 2 fresh bay leaves 4 golden shallots, thinly sliced   Parsley mayo 150 ml olive oil 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil 2 egg yolks ½ tsp Dijon mustard 1 tbsp white wine vinegar 1 small garlic clove, finely chopped ¼ cup finely chopped parsley

Method

  • 01
  • For pickled beetroot, preheat oven to 180C. Place beetroot on a small roasting tray, add 250ml water, cover with foil and roast until tender (1-1½ hours). Cool slightly, peel, finely dice and transfer to a non-reactive container. Meanwhile, combine vinegar, sugar and 2 tsp sea salt in a saucepan, bring to the simmer over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add to beetroot with bay leaves and refrigerate overnight to pickle. Makes about 375ml. Before serving, drain excess liquid, stir through shallot and remove bay leaves. Pickled beetroot will keep for 1 week.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 220C. Place pork shoulder in a roasting pan, score skin. Season to taste with fennel, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, rubbing into incisions. Roast until skin is golden and crackling (30-35 minutes), then reduce to 160C, cover with a double layer of foil and roast, basting occasionally with pan juices, until meat can be easily removed from the bone (5-5½ hours). Keep warm.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for parsley mayo, combine oils in a jug and set aside. Process yolks, mustard, vinegar and garlic in a food processor until smooth, then, with motor running, add oils in a thin stream until emulsified and combined. Season to taste and stir through parsley. Makes about 185ml.
  • 04
  • Warm panini in oven (2-4 minutes), then split and stuff with pork and crackling, pickled beetroot, parsley mayo and butter lettuce leaves and serve.
