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.

Shark Bay Wild Scampi Caviar

Bright blue scampi roe is popping up on menus across Australia. Here's why it's so special.

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."

Summer feta recipes

Whether in a fresh salad or seasonal seafood dish, feta's creamy tang can be used to add interest to a variety of summer dishes.

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.

Egg and anchovy soup


This Umbrian soup is usually made with a plain frittata, but we've added anchovies and lemon rind to ours. The salsa verde accompaniment isn't traditional, but it gives the soup a lovely hit of flavour.

You'll need

160 ml milk 2 eggs 20 gm plain flour ¼ cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus extra to serve 6 anchovy fillets, finely chopped Finely grated rind of 1 lemon 30 gm butter, coarsely chopped 1.75 litres (7 cups) veal stock or chicken stock To serve: finely chopped chives   Salsa verde 1 cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsely ¼ cup finely chopped chives 6 anchovy fillets 2 garlic cloves Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon 200 ml extra-virgin olive oil 50 ml olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For salsa verde, process ingredients except oils in a food processor until finely chopped, then, with motor running, add oils in a thin steady stream, processing to combine. Season to taste and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Whisk milk, egg and flour in a bowl until smooth, stir in parsley, anchovy and lemon rind, season to taste. Heat one-third of the butter in a 23cm-diameter non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat until foaming, add one-third of egg mixture and cook until set (2-3 minutes). Transfer to plate, roll into a cylinder and repeat with remaining butter and egg mixture. Thickly slice frittata widthways and divide among warmed serving bowls.
  • 03
  • Bring stock to the simmer in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, season to taste and ladle over frittata. Serve hot, scattered with chives and extra parsley, with salsa verde to the side.

Note If using chicken stock for this recipe, you can add the coarsely shredded chicken to the soup too.
