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.

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.

Sambal grilled chicken wings


"Cook an extra 10 more than you think you will need - trust me, they're super-tasty," says Turner. You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.

You'll need

80 ml (1/3 cup) vegetable oil 4 golden shallots, finely chopped 10 dried long red chillies, coarsely chopped 5 fresh long red chillies 60 gm tamarind pulp 60 gm light palm sugar 60 ml (¼ cup) fish sauce 1 tbsp lime juice 18 chicken wings (about 1.5kg)

Method

  • 01
  • Heat 60ml oil in a frying pan over low heat, add shallot and stir occasionally until golden (10 minutes). Process dried and fresh chillies and remaining oil in a small blender until finely chopped. Add chilli mixture to pan and cook until aromatic (10-15 minutes). Combine tamarind pulp with 125ml hot water in a bowl, mash with a fork, then strain through a sieve, pressing on solids with a spoon (discard solids). Add 100ml tamarind liquid, palm sugar, fish sauce and lime juice to pan, stir occasionally until thickened (30-35 minutes) and set aside to cool.
  • 02
  • Combine wings and sambal in a non-reactive container and refrigerate to marinate (6 hours, or overnight).
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Remove wings from marinade (discard) and arrange on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Cover with 2 layers of foil, seal tightly and roast until wings are tender (40 minutes). Remove foil and cook until dark golden (15-20 minutes). Serve hot or, if heading for the beach, at room temperature.
