Fast and fresh summer recipes

Fish in a flash, speedy stir-fries, ripe and ready fruit – magic dishes in moments. Here's a preview of the recipes in our February 2016 issue.

Stir-fry recipes

A centrepiece of stir-fried lobster with garlic stems or Neil Perry’s stir-fried beef with Sichuan peppercorns and sweet bean sauce? Whichever you choose, our online collection of 22 wok-tossed recipes is bound to cause a stir.

12-hour barbecue beef brisket

"Texas is world-renowned for barbecuing a mean brisket, the flat and fatty slab of meat, cut from the cow's lower chest," says Stone. "Cooking a simply seasoned brisket low and slow on a smoker (or kettle barbecue when barbecuing at home), gradually rendering the gummy white fat while simultaneously infusing smoky flavour into the meat, is a labour of love. Although time-consuming, briskets are not difficult to cook. And while you'll note that this one takes a whopping 12 hours to cook, don't be alarmed if your brisket needs another hour or so - this timing is an approximation, and greatly depends on the size of your brisket and heat of your barbecue." The brisket can also be cooked in an oven (see note).

Prego rolls

"This is a Mozambican specialty and one of the foods that changed my life in terms of African cuisine," says Duncan Welgemoed. "The best spot to get a prego roll in South Africa is the Radium Beerhall. It's run by my godfather, Manny, and is the oldest pub in Jo'burg. The meats are grilled out the back by Mozambican staff and are still done the same way today as they were 30 years ago." Start this recipe a day ahead to marinate the beef.

Lebanese-style snapper

"This dish is Lebanese-peasant done fancy with all the peasant-style flavours you'll find in Lebanese cooking, but with a beautiful piece of fish added," says Bacash. "The trick to not overcooking fish is to be aware that it cooks from the outside inwards and the centre should only cook until it's warm, not hot. If it gets hot in the middle, it will become overcooked from the residual heat. It takes a little practise getting to know this - be conscious of the inside of the fish and not the outside. Until you get it right, you can always get a little paring knife and peek inside the flesh when you think it's ready; it won't damage it too much."

Coleslaw

"Store-bought and pre-cut coleslaws, and bottled dressings have given the humble slaw a lacklustre rep over the years," says Stone. "Taking a little time (just 10 minutes!) to whip one up yourself reminds us why this salad became popular in the first place. This creamy, crunchy coleslaw comes together in a pinch and can be piled atop a thick piece of brisket or served as a side."

App-etite for instruction

Check back soon for our 2013 Restaurant Guide app.

Pacojets. Thermomixes. Sous-vide machines. Immersion circulators. Useful machines all, but this month, the most useful piece of electronic gadgetry for Australian food-lovers will be the iPhone, because it's soon to be home to Australia's number-one restaurant guide. Yes indeed, the latest edition of the Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide, the only guide that features detailed coverage of the nation's 400 best eateries, hits the Apple App Store 7 October. Just when you thought it couldn't be a more convenient package, we've shrunk it down from handbag/briefcase dimensions to pocket-size, and at the same time, through the miracles of modern mobile technology, added new and useful features that aren't part of the printed book. The app lets you search reviews by the name of the restaurant or chef, or find reviewed restaurants near wherever you happen to be standing, which it then displays clearly on a map. You can search for a selection with a wide range of filters that includes cuisine, location, rating and opening hours, and once you've found the restaurant you want, you can book a table from inside the app directly or call the restaurant with just one tap. If you're a dreamer/planner, you can create a wish list of must-visit eateries (and then tick them off as you go along). You can also share reviews with a friend via email, Facebook or Twitter. If you're interested only in the very crème de la crème, you can jump straight to the Top Rated section to see our award-winners, Top 100, top 10s by region and, of course, the restaurants that received stars. All this and more stored conveniently in one neat little application on your iPhone.
