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.

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.

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

Parsley stracci with bonito crudo, capers, rocket and lemon


Blanched parsley turns this fresh pasta dough a green that remains vibrant when it's cooked. The heat from the cooked pasta is enough to cook the bonito lightly; choose the best sashimi-grade fish you can find.

You'll need

250 gm sashimi-grade bonito or kingfish, very thinly sliced across the grain 20 gm salted capers, rinsed Finely grated rind and juice of ½ lemon, or to taste 1 tbsp red wine vinegar To serve: torn rocket and flat-leaf parsley   Parsley pasta dough 1½ cups (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley 2 eggs 300 gm (2 cups) “00” flour   Garlic oil 100 ml extra-virgin olive oil 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced on a mandolin

Method

  • 01
  • For parsley pasta dough, blanch parsley until bright green (10 seconds), drain, refresh under cold running water and squeeze out all excess water. Process parsley in a food processor with eggs until finely chopped, add flour and a generous pinch of salt and process until a dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, knead until smooth, then wrap in plastic wrap and stand for 1 hour to rest.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for garlic oil, heat oil and garlic in a small saucepan over low-medium heat to infuse and cook until garlic just starts to turn golden (4-6 minutes). Set aside.
  • 03
  • Cut pasta into 4 pieces then, working with a piece at a time (keep remaining pieces covered to prevent them drying out), roll through the widest setting of a pasta machine, lightly dusting with flour if sticking. Fold and roll, dusting lightly with extra flour if necessary, reducing the setting notch by notch until pasta is 2mm thick. Cut into rough ribbons and set aside on a floured tray.
  • 04
  • Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (2-3 minutes), then transfer to a large bowl with tongs. Add garlic oil to taste, bonito, capers, lemon rind and juice and vinegar, toss to combine and season to taste. Scatter with rocket and parsley, toss to combine and serve warm or at room temperature.
