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.

What the GT team is cooking on Christmas Day

We don't do things by halves in the Gourmet office. These are the recipes we'll be cooking on the big day.

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."

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.

Perth’s slick offering

Meet the west's newest bed for the night (or longer).

Function and value in a hotel room? These can be rare accommodation commodities out west. The resources boom continues to place a massive demand on Perth's CBD hotels - midweek, in particular - but following the recent opening of the 236-room Fraser Suites, respite for weary business and leisure travellers is at hand.

Like its Kent Street address in Sydney, Fraser Suites' new $140 million Perth property might be apartment accommodation by definition, but the feel and fit-out is very much hotel luxe. In addition to the sleek vibe of the studio, and one- and two-bedroom apartments themselves, amenities such as free WiFi and a 24-hour gym will please frequent flyers. Cricket fanatics - particularly those already planning ahead to December's Ashes test at the WACA - might be interested to know the hotel is within walking distance of the hallowed ground (some balconies even offer glimpses of the action).

Eat-in options are currently limited to in-room kitchen facilities and the modern Australian Dining Room restaurant, but East Perth dining powerhouses Restaurant Amusé and Co-op Dining are both nearby. The heart of the city is also only a short walk, taxi or bus ride away, making this an excellent base from which to familiarise yourself with Perth's revitalised food and drink scene. Rooms from $245 until 30 August. Fraser Suites, 10 Adelaide Tce, East Perth, WA, (08) 9261 0000.
