AA Gill's final column for Gourmet Traveller

We mourn the loss of a treasured member of the Gourmet Traveller family who passed awayon December 10, 2016. British writer AA Gill was a contributor to the magazine from July 2004. Gill’s travel column was as insightful as it was witty, funny as it was thoughtful – he was without peer. This is the final piece he wrote for Gourmet Traveller; it appears in the December issue, 2016. - Anthea Loucas Bosha, Editor

Attica’s chef isn’t happiest when eating soils or smears on his days off, it’s souvlaki. We follow him to his favourite spot.

Coconut crab and green mango salad

"This salad bursts with fresh, vibrant flavours and became a signature on my Paramount menus," says Christine Manfield. "I capitalised on using green mangoes in many dishes as they became more widely available. Blue swimmer crabs from South Australia have the most delicious sweet meat. It's best to buy them whole, cook them yourself and carefully pick the meat from the shell - a tedious task but it gives the best flavour. This entree also works well with spanner crab meat (you can buy this in packs ready cooked from reliable fishmongers). The sweetness of the crab, the richness of the fresh coconut and the sourness of green mango make a wonderful partnership. It's all about harmony on the palate and using the very best produce."

H&M unveils Home collection in Sydney

H&M Home collection

H&M Home collection

Swedish fashion giant H&M opens on Pitt Street Mall in Sydney's CBD on Saturday, and the retailer will be bringing more than boyfriend jeans and maxi skirts - it's débuting the H&M Home collection.

The range features striking copper candle shades, pastel-hued glassware and graphic black and white table-runners alongside linen and napery in breezy summer colours such as sky blue and turquoise. The Home collection is exclusive in Australia to the Pitt Street Mall and Melbourne GPO stores.

The flagship store, H&M's seventh in Australia, is in Pitt Street's Glasshouse centre, and spans 5,000 square metres across three floors. Along with the new Home collection, it will stock womenswear, menswear, children and sport collections.

It opens to the public on Saturday at 10am, but will be christened with a launch party this evening, with Solange Knowles spinning tunes, Mumm Champagne flowing and a 60-metre red carpet running through Pitt Street Mall.

The retailer is staying tight-lipped on whether or not Olivier Rousteing's Balmain for H&M collection will make it to the new Sydney store, but, regardless, you can expect some pretty impressive queues.

H&M, 150 Pitt Street Mall, Sydney, NSW.
