July 2009

It’s citrus galore at this time of year and not just the usual lemon, orange and mandarin suspects. There’s also good ruby red grapefruit, which adds a sweet tang to the entrée of seared yellow fin tuna with sweet pork crackling at Flying Fish.

We know it’s not summer, so we probably shouldn’t be even thinking about eating strawberries, but there are plenty of sweet Queensland ones around and they’re not about to be ignored. La Brasserie is pairing them with rhubarb — which definitely is in season — in a crumble served with stem ginger icecream.

Apples are perennial favourites for desserts, so a slab of the strudel at Rhinedorf might be in order. Nothing’s done by halves here, so it arrives with vanilla custard, icecream and cream.  Warm vanilla poached pears with toffee icecream and lemon pancakes tick two fruit boxes at Strangers with Candy. That’s got to be good for you, doesn’t it?
