Cafe Sydney’s barramundi with goat’s cheese ravioli and burnt butter pine nuts

The fish, crisp on the outside but meltingly soft on the inside, goes so well with the combination of sweetness and nutty flavours in the sauce and the silky smooth pasta with its tart but creamy goat’s cheese filling.

Pork rolls with leek and beer sauce

Combining the slight saltiness of the pork with the sweet flavour of the cooked-down beer and leeks makes for a tasty meal and a quick and hassle-free alternative to beer-basted roasts.
