"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."

Aria Sydney closed its doors in late August for a complete redesign. In this exclusive behind-the-scenes video of the renovation, Matt Moran talks us through Aria's new look.
Chef Matt Moran and restaurateur Bruce Solomon opened Aria together 17 years ago, just before the Sydney Olympics in 1999. After almost two decades, the co-owners are ready to shake things up.
"Bruce and I both feel now is the right time for a new look Aria," says Moran. "We won't be moving away from fine dining. If anything, we'll be upping the ante."
And how do you do that in Sydney, circa 2016? Two words: George Livissianis. The interior architect is behind some of Sydney's favourite dining rooms - including The Dolphin's Christo-meets-Haring makeover, both The Apollo Sydney and Apollo Ginza, and Cho Cho San. Aria will be the first time Livissianis has done the interiors for a fine diner.
While the final look is still evolving for the 170-seat restaurant, so far we know the new room will combine various woods, travertines, bronze and leather, and a brand new grill section in the kitchen.
Aria Sydney will reopen in early November for lunch and dinner
Monday to Sunday.
