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.

Christmas ham recipes

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

Bulgogi pork tacos with nashi slaw


Blame LA's Roy Choi and his food trucks for this Korean-Mexican fusion. There's good reason this style of cooking has become so popular - it just tastes so good.

You'll need

12 white corn tortillas To serve: kimchi, thinly sliced spring onion and roasted sesame seeds   Bulgogi pork 250 ml Korean soy sauce (see note) 125 ml (½ cup) mirin 60 gm brown sugar 1 tbsp gochujang (see note) 1 tbsp finely grated ginger 500 gm pork neck, thinly sliced For drizzling: grapeseed oil   Ssämjang sauce 1½ tbsp each ssämjang (Korean soy bean and chilli paste, see note), rice vinegar and sesame oil   Nashi slaw 300 gm thinly sliced white cabbage 1 nashi, thinly sliced 1 spring onion, thinly sliced 1 tbsp grapeseed oil 3 tsp rice vinegar 2 tsp sesame oil 1 tsp finely grated ginger

Method

  • 01
  • For bulgogi pork, heat a barbecue to high. Combine ingredients except pork and oil in a large bowl, then add pork, mix to coat pork well and set aside. Shred before serving.
  • 02
  • For ssämjang sauce, combine ingredients in a bowl, mix well and set aside.
  • 03
  • For nashi slaw, toss ingredients in a bowl to combine and set aside.
  • 04
  • Warm tortillas on the barbecue, turning once, then wrap in a tea towel to steam (5 minutes). Drain pork from marinade and drizzle with a little oil. Barbecue, turning once, until browned and just cooked through (3-4 minutes). Serve bulgogi pork with warm tacos, ssämjang sauce, nashi slaw, kimchi, spring onion and sesame seeds to assemble to taste.

Note Korean soy sauce, gochujang and ssämjang are available from Korean grocers.
