Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

Sanpellegrino Café Society awards

What happens when you combine a group of art students with Sanpellegrino? Café Society: a competition where final-year photography students from some of the finest art schools in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane capture the notion of café culture through a single image. "Café Society is the lifestyle that lives in the city's cultural café institutions," says Manuela Capponi, senior brand manager at Sanpellegrino. "It's about meeting friends at a favourite café and enjoying good coffee, good food, stimulating conversation and, of course, a Sanpellegrino beverage." On Monday 30 September the winners of Sydney's 2013 division were named at the Ivy Lounge in the city's CBD, following the announcement of the Melbourne winners, Daniel Bornstein, Kristian Beek and Kip Scott, on 16 September at Gazi. This year's brief? To capture the essence of "the café after hours".

The food Canapés in the form of prawns with aïoli, bite-sized goat's cheese tartlets with caramelised figs, little packages of spinach and feta gözleme, and crumbed lamb cutlets.

The drink Bottles of Sanpellegrino's sparkling fruit drinks and waters were in high demand. We took ours in the form of the aptly named Good Time: Campari, Cointreau, lemon juice and sparkling Aranciata Rossa.

We loved The photographs captured the café-after-hours theme in ways you'd never imagine (who knew the barista turned into a DJ after dark?), and you could feel the elation in the air as winners Emily Yan Yee Ngo, Peter Distapan and Christina Tsilioris snapped up first, second and third prize for their work. Bravo.

Brisbane Café Society winners will be announced 14 October at GOMA, visit sanpellegrino.com.au for more information.
