Mango recipes

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Paul Carmichael's great cake

"Great cake, also known in Barbados as black cake or rum cake, is a variation of British Christmas cake that's smashed with rum and falernum syrup," says Momofuku Seiobo chef Paul Carmichael. "This festive cake varies from household to household but they all have two things in common: tons of dried fruit and rum. It's a cake that should be started at least a month out so the fruit can marinate in the booze. Start this recipe up to five weeks ahead to macerate the fruit and baste the cake."

Sydney's best dishes 2016

For our 50th anniversary issue in 2016, we scoured Australia asking two questions: What dishes are making waves right now? What flavours will take us into the next half-century? Sydney provided 16 answers.

Veal cutlets with pancetta and Fontina


This makes a great alternative to veal parmigiana because it has no tomato sauce.

You'll need

6 veal cutlets (about 220gm each) 150 gm (1 cup) plain flour 125 ml (½ cup) milk 2 eggs 140 gm (2 cups) fresh fine ciabatta breadcrumbs 50 gm parmesan, finely grated ½ cup (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped 100 ml olive oil 50 gm unsalted butter, coarsely chopped 6 thin slices mild pancetta 180 gm Fontina, coarsely grated

Method

  • 01
  • Place veal cutlets between two pieces of plastic wrap and flatten to 1cm thick with a meat mallet, season both sides to taste.
  • 02
  • Place flour in a large bowl, season to taste. Whisk milk and eggs in a bowl, season to taste. Combine breadcrumbs, parmesan and parsley on a tray, season to taste, then dust veal cutlets in seasoned flour, dip in eggwash and coat with breadcrumbs, shake off excess and set aside.
  • 03
  • Preheat a grill over high heat. Heat oil and butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook cutlets in batches, turning once, until golden (3-4 minutes each side), transfer to an oven tray lined with baking paper and repeat with remaining cutlets.
  • 04
  • Top each cutlet with a slice of pancetta and scatter with Fontina. Grill until cheese melts (3-4 minutes) and serve hot with lemon wedges and a leaf salad.
