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.

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.

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."

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.

Christmas ham recipes

The centrepiece of any Christmas feast, hams can be glazed with many ingredients. Here are our favourite combinations.

Baked greengages with liquorice panna cotta and ginger crumb


Greengages are a fabulous plum with a green skin and golden flesh that tastes like it's been soaked with honey. If you can't get them just substitute with another plum variety. Start this recipe a day ahead to set the panna cotta.

You'll need

750 gm greengage plums 1 tbsp honey 2 tbsp Stone’s green ginger wine   Liquorice panna cotta 750 ml (3 cups) milk 150 gm liquorice, thinly sliced (a soft, natural liquorice melts more easily) 75 gm (1/3 cup) caster sugar 3 leaves titanium-strength gelatine, softened in cold water for 5 minutes   Ginger crumb 240 gm plain flour 20 gm raw sugar 1 tbsp ground ginger 115 gm unsalted butter, melted

Method

  • 01
  • For liquorice panna cotta, stir milk, liquorice and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until liquorice is mostly dissolved (about 10 minutes), then strain into a jug. Squeeze excess water from gelatine, add to warm milk mixture and stir to dissolve. Divide among 200ml serving glasses and chill in the refrigerator overnight to set.
  • 02
  • For ginger crumb, preheat oven to 180C. Mix together flour, sugar, ginger and ¾ tsp salt in a bowl. Stir in melted butter and 1 tbsp of water. Spread over an oven tray lined with baking paper and bake until golden (20-25 minutes). Cool to room temperature and store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
  • 03
  • Increase oven to 190C. Place plums in a roasting dish, drizzle with honey and green ginger wine and roast until tender (15-20 minutes). Set aside to cool.
  • 04
  • Serve liquorice panna cotta topped with roasted greengages and ginger crumb.
