When Paul Carmichael likes to party, he likes to go big: big food, big flavours and big smiles all around. In his time heading the kitchen at the three-starred Momofuku Seiobo he has made Sydney an unlikely outpost of Caribbean fine-dining, fusing Australian tropical produce with the foodways of his native Barbados.
With Paul's fish soup and dumplings, his baked plantains with spicy mussels and his conkie – a spiced pumpkin and coconut pudding traditionally steamed in banana leaves – he brings a welcome dose of Caribbean warmth to the middle of the Australian winter. Just add rum.
