Australia's best rieslings

We’re spoilt for variety – and value – in Australia when it comes to good riesling. Max Allen picks the top 20 from a fine crop.

Fig recipes

Figs. We can't get enough of them. Here are a few sweet and savoury ways to add them to your summer spread.

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."

Most popular recipes summer 2017

Counting down from 20, here are this summer's most-loved recipes.

Chorizo hotdogs with chimichurri and smoky red relish

A hotdog is all about the condiments. Here, choose between a smoky red capsicum relish or the bright flavours of chimichurri, or go for a bit of both.

Top Australian chefs to follow on Instagram in 2017

A lot has changed since we first published our pick of the best chefs to follow on Instagram (way back in the dark ages of 2013). Here’s who we’re double-tapping on the photo-sharing app right now.

Christine Manfield recipes

As the '90s dawned, darling chefs were pushing the boundaries of cooking in this country. A young Christine Manfield, just starting out at this heady time, soon became part of the generation that redefined modern Australian cuisine. She shares some of her timeless signatures from the era.

2013 Eat-Drink-Design Awards winners

The 2013 Eat-Drink-Design Awards gongs were handed out last night in the performance space of Brunswick bar Howler in Melbourne's inner north (itself short-listed and receiving a highly commended nod). Recognising excellent design in the hospitality industry, the awards were decided by a five-person jury that included chef Christine Manfield and writer John Birmingham.

The award for Best Restaurant Design went to Nicholas Gurney for his tiny handcrafted restaurant Farmhouse in Sydney's Kings Cross. The jury thought Gurney's recycled and reclaimed restaurant "pares back the dining experience to its essentials".

The Best Bar Design category was a tie between two Melbourne bars, Simon Denton's Japanese jewel Hihou (pictured above) and the exuberant, concrete pipe-dominated extension to the Prahran Hotel, while Best Café Design went to the Six Degrees Architects-designed Top Paddock café in the inner Melbourne suburb of Richmond.

Ronnie Di Stasio's trophy cabinet may need further extending as Bar Di Stasio picked up the award for Best Identity Design, while Café Di Stasio, designed by architect Allan Powell in 1988, was inducted into the Eat-Drink-Design Hall of Fame, joining previous inductee Jimmy Watson's.

Best Retail Design went to Con Christopoulos's multi-faceted Spring Street Grocer, while the winner of the Best Temporary Design Award was Sydney's Kitchen By Mike On Wheels for its brilliant, barrow-like portable kitchen.
