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."

The Apple Daily

Perched between the lauded Print Hall restaurant and buzzy Bob's Bar, The Apple Daily is a sultry, date-night-ready den. A neon sign casts a red glow over newspaper-plastered walls, while cocktail-sipping couples cosy up at every table, sharing a sexy spin on Asian street food. Take the sweet, smoky, salty goodness that is the pad Thai, with its chilli jam pork and plump prawns fresh with bean sprouts and coriander. Or the sweet, tamarind-sticky spare ribs and cooling, minty papaya salad (finger-licking required), or the well-balanced yellow curry with barramundi. Only the dessert falls short of its promise; in this instance, star anise ice-cream sounds much better than it tastes. Throughout, the attentive wait-staff are always at the ready to clear plates and refill drinks from the impressive menu of all Western Australian beer and wine. You may be tempted to make every night a date night.
