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.

Chilled recipes for summer

When the mercury is rising, step away from the oven. These recipes are either raw, chilled or frozen and will cool you down in a snap.

Shark Bay Wild Scampi Caviar

Bright blue scampi roe is popping up on menus across Australia. Here's why it's so special.

Dark chocolate delice, salted-caramel ganache and chocolate sorbet

"The delice from Source Dining is a winner. May I have the recipe?" Rebecca Ward, Fitzroy, Vic REQUEST A RECIPE To request a recipe, email fareexchange@bauer-media.com.au or send us a message via Facebook. Please include the restaurant's name and address, as well as your name and address. Please note that because of the volume of requests we receive, we can only publish a selection in the magazine.

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.

Koh Loy Sriracha Sauce, David Thompson's favourite hot sauce

When the master of Thai food pinpoints anything as his favourite, we sit up and listen.

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."

Gifts under $100 at our pop-up Christmas Boutique

Whether it's a hand-thrown pasta bowl, a bottle of vodka made from sheep's whey or a completely stylish denim apron, our pop-up Christmas Boutique in collaboration with gift shop Sorry Thanks I Love You has got you covered in the $100 and under budget this Christmas.

Kang Kong, Adelaide

Our restaurant critics' picks of the latest and best eats around the country right now: Kang Kong, Adelaide.

Taking a lead from the inventive take on Asian street food at Sydney's Mr Wong and Melbourne's Chin Chin, Adelaide restaurateurs Rob Parsons (of Treasury on King William) and Ron Kohli (Holy Guacamoly, Coffylosophy, Chocolatree) have cleverly transformed a former bank office into the bustling Kang Kong. The menu's best examples have chef Matt Miles taking ideas from many cultures - Malay, Korean, Japanese, Filipino, Thai. Try salmon poached in miso with dengaku, kimchi and spring onion pancakes, and spring rolls packed with roast duck, black fungus, pickled carrot and hoisin-ginger dipping sauce. A dessert of roasted banana panna cotta with pandan leaf meringue is also one to try. When night falls, the adjacent laneway becomes pop-up bar Gypsy Dragon, with strings of lights illuminating walls dressed in graffiti-style Asian motifs, while a mobile bar cart offers curious cocktails with herbal ingredients such as bitter gourd tea, liquorice, chrysanthemum powder and aloe vera.

Kang Kong, 44 Waymouth St, Adelaide, (08) 7226 5255
