Australia’s love affair with coffee is stronger than ever; it’s become a way of life. But exactly how did a beverage manage to shape our country’s culture?
As the weather started to cool down, your stoves were heating up with spicy curries, hearty breakfast dishes and comforting bowls of pasta. You balanced things out nicely with some greens but dessert wasn't entirely forgotten. Counting down from 30, here are your 2017 autumn favourites.
The restaurant and hotel scene on Australia's favourite holiday island has never been more exciting and Australian chefs, owners and restaurateurs are leading the charge, writes Samantha Coomber.
"Gordita makes a splendid version of the Galician almond cake Tarta de Santiago, with its dramatic design. Would you please publish the recipe?" Michael MacDermott, Taringa, Qld REQUEST A RECIPE To request a recipe, email email@example.com or send us a message via Facebook. Please include the restaurant's name and address, as well as your name and address. Please note that because of the volume of requests we receive, we can only publish a selection in the magazine.
What's next for the unstoppable spirit?
The name 'beef cheek' really does refer to the facial cheek muscle of a cow. It's a tough, lean cut of meat often braised or cooked slowly to produce a tender and delicious result. Here are some of our favourite ways to serve them up.
A vegan, an omnivore and a carnivore walk into a bar. Sounds like the start of a pretty bad joke. But this was the real-life situation my partners Toby Wilson and Jon Kennedy and I found ourselves in when we decided to open Bad Hombres, a Mexican restaurant in Sydney's Surry Hills. The three of us have different dietary needs, but Mexican food can feed us all.
Bad Hombres piggybacks off the love machine that is Toby Wilson. You'd know him: he's the guy behind Ghostboy Cantina, the slightly off-kilter taquería that opened (and closed again) last year in the Dixon House food court in Chinatown. Bad Hombres is a much bigger beast. Now we have 55 seats, tequila, some craft beers and a constantly growing natural Australian wine list to go with your tacos. And the name? Well, yes, that's a jab at Donald Trump's racism towards Mexicans living in America. Saddle up.
Empezar: 2016 Tim Wildman "Astro Bunny", Ricca Terra
Farms, Riverland, South Australia
This one is bound to get you jiving. Australian resident and UK wine master Tim Wildman has somehow liquefied "Out of Touch" by '80s duo Hall & Oates into a beverage. Also known as Instagram's favourite Aussie natural, the Bunny has been popping all summer long. If you believe the rumours, the last of it is all gone, but we still have some. With zero sulphur, zero additions and zero adjustments, it's literally just juice made from grapes. And tasty ones at that: it's 50 per cent vermentino, 25 per cent nero d'Avola and 25 per cent zibibbo. One glass is like biting into a ruby grapefruit. It explodes with crunchy nectarine flavour and sharp bite, a little like a mixture of sherbet and Pop Rocks dancing on your tongue.
Entrada: 2016 Tom Shobbrook Grenache Rosé,
Seppeltsfield, Barossa Valley, South Australia
Straight outta Seppeltsfield, Shobbrook's Grenache Rosé speaks loud with its light and tight mineral body. The fresh snap of sour watermelon and light rosewater dryness pairs perfectly with our bonito tostada with soy, fresh lime, sesame, seaweed and avocado mousse. Plus, Tom's farm has been certified organic and biodynamic since 2009 - so you'll feel good while you're drinking it.
Plato principal: 2015 "Moon" Chardonnay, Nagambie Lakes,
Want to talk moon juice? Look no further than this biodynamic gem. Mike Boudry and Greta Moon work their farm down at Nagambie Lakes with traditional and Old World style, producing wines with real structure and complexity. River stone minerality, nectarine and snappy citrus notes hover over a rich body of honey and fresh butter. You'll want to slurp it alongside our savoury deep-fried cauliflower. It's served with lightly toasted Chinese pancakes, and adorned with cashew nut cream, coriander and a vibrant salsa verde.
Postre: Tequila Siete Leguas, Añejo, Los Altos,
You'll need something to sip with a plate of our chamomile sugar churros dunked in gooey cajeta (an even better version of dulce de leche). Say hello to Siete Leguas. This distillery was responsible for producing the original Patrón tequila brand, but as Patrón grew in popularity, Siete Leguas couldn't keep up. When Patrón left to open a distillery in 2002, Siete Leguas was left to focus on its own top-shelf tequilas. This one is made of 100 per cent Agave tequilana, also known as blue agave. Candy apple and light vanilla cascade into caramel and orange rind. It leaves your mouth with a medium-to-hot wood tingle that'll make you think you liked the bourbon-aged barrel it was made in. Yee-hah.
Algo más: Albo Corn Ale, Willie the Boatman, St Peters,
New South Wales
This beer, produced by the studly gents at Willie the Boatman in St Peters, is the Karl Lagerfeld of bad hombres. It nods to the Prohibition days and all the hardworking farmers who would enjoy a cheeky tipple after working up a sweat. I love it because it's light, crisp and easy to drink, but still classy. You could smash a few with a plate of tortilla chips and pumpkin mole to start, save a couple for your finale, or both. It's a great palate cleanser and will send you straight back to the beginning, wanting to do it all over again.
