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."

A glimpse through the windows at The Kitchen Door, across vines and sheep grazing in paddocks, reveals some of the McLaren Vale produce that inspires the menu here. Diners in the wine company's large entertainment shed - it also houses a gallery space and cellar door tasting room - tend to favour a superbly balanced and modestly priced four-course seasonal tasting menu. This can embrace a vibrant salad of pickled zucchini and stuffed zucchini flower with jumbo couscous and goat's yoghurt, or a thick almond soup with chicken and grated Granny Smith apple. Dishes also explore unexpected directions, such as the outstanding flavour and texture marriage of pickled tuna with porcini mushroom and aged Comté. Penny's Hill and Mr Riggs wines dominate a list that stretches to other regions and McLaren Vale neighbours. All these components are combined with intelligence and a touch of bravery.
