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."

Walnut oil parfait and crisp barley sandwiches


You'll need

140 gm caster sugar 50 gm liquid glucose 11 egg yolks 125 gm (½ cup) mascarpone 200 gm pouring cream, whisked to soft peaks 125 ml (½ cup) buttermilk 200 ml good-quality walnut oil   Barley crisps 75 gm pearl barley 35 gm unsalted butter 35 gm (¼ cup) plain flour 2 tsp caster sugar

Method

  • 01
  • Stir sugar, glucose and 125ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat to dissolve sugar, then cook until mixture reaches 121C on a sugar thermometer (5-10 minutes).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, when sugar thermometer reaches 105C, start whisking yolks in an electric mixer on high speed until pale, then reduce speed to low. Slowly add syrup and whisk until cooled to room temperature (8-10 minutes). Transfer half the mixture to a bowl, whisk in mascarpone, then whisk in remaining egg mixture. Fold in cream and buttermilk, then thoroughly fold in walnut oil. Transfer to a 20cm x 30cm metal pan brushed very lightly with oil and lined with plastic wrap and freeze until frozen (3-4 hours). Just before serving, turn out and cut into 12 pieces.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for barley crisps, preheat oven to 140C. Cook barley in a large saucepan of boiling water over medium-high heat until tender (35-40 minutes; add more water if necessary). Drain (reserve 175ml cooking liquid), transfer barley, reserved cooking liquid, remaining ingredients and 1 tsp sea salt flakes to a blender and blend until smooth. Spread thinly to three 20cm x 30cm rectangles on oven trays lined with baking paper, then bake until dry (1¾-2 hours; turn crisps over after 1 hour). Break into rough pieces, sandwich pieces of parfait between crisps and serve.
This recipe is from the June 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“This is a fun and messy way to end a meal with friends,” says Graham. “Serve it on a platter and let everyone get stuck in.”

Drink Suggestion

A nice old Sauternes. The nutty and slightly earthy notes of the wine will work well with the texture of the parfait.
