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.

GT 2014 Restaurant Guide: The Stars

We award only 100 star ratings in our Restaurant Guide, so some restaurants which have previously held stars may have been edged out by others lifting their game or by newcomers. The three-star rating labels a restaurant as one of Australia's great restaurants, the equal of the world's best, and a destination in itself. Two stars makes an establishment a superior dining experience in all respects, worthy of a detour. One star means there is an element of pizzazz as well as professionalism which raises an eatery beyond the everyday.
