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.
Cirrus moves the Bentley team down to the water and into more lighthearted territory without sacrificing polish, writes Pat Nourse.
A vegetable patch without rocket lacks a great staple, according to Mat Pember. The perennial performer is a leaf for all seasons.

Expect Mexican-Asian flavours and an all-natural wine list from two of Sydney’s edgier operators.

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.
These baguette recipes are picture-perfect and picnic ready, bursting with fillings like slow-cooked beef tongue, poached egg and grilled asparagus and classic leg ham and cheese.
The Melbourne suburb lost some of its lustre in recent years, but is now bouncing back.
From an effortless tomato and ricotta herbed tart to Sri Lankan fish curries and chewy pork-and-pineapple skewers, these no-fuss recipes lend to relaxing on a humid summer's night.
David Thompson brings the heat to Melbourne with his newest incarnation of Long Chim. Michael Harden drops by for dinner.
"I've made all kinds of fancy cheesecakes in my time, but nothing really beats the classic combination of strawberries and almonds with a boost from vanilla bean," says Stone. "I could just pile macerated strawberries on top, but why not give your tastebuds a proper party by folding grilled strawberries into the cheesecake batter too? Cheesecakes are elegant and my go-to for celebrations because they taste best when whipped up a day in advance."
Plenty of plates were flying at Greek hotspot Alpha last night,
but they weren't for the smashing. Our crack team of reviewers has
combed the land for its best eating, and their hard work has paid
off in the form of a new edition of Australia's national restaurant
guide. The country's top chefs jetted in to Sydney for the launch
of the guide and for the announcement of the Gourmet
Traveller Restaurant Awards over a fittingly epic evening of
eating and drinking.
Chef Peter Conistis and his team kept things real in the kitchen, while Nine's Leila McKinnon brought plenty of sparkle to the stage in her role as MC. The night kicked off with some inspiring words from sponsor Vittoria Coffee, and some equally stirring drinks from Tanqueray.
"Vittoria Coffee has been a consistent sponsor of Gourmet and these awards for many, many years," said Vittoria CEO Les Schirato. "And by sponsoring these awards tonight, it's a great honour for me to be able to put back into this industry that's been so good to me and that I love so much."
The chefs, meanwhile, made the most of having someone else cook for them for a change. Some of the happiest faces in the room were those of the team from Bar Di Stasio, Bar of the Year winner, and the Monopole crew, which picked up Wine List of the Year. Sydney's Mr Wong romped in for the New Restaurant of the Year award, Queensland scored with Maîtres d' of the Year going to Drew Patten and Andrew Buchanan of Urbane, while Perth's Sam Ward picked up the Best New Talent gong for his work at El Público. Tasmania, meanwhile, had a win with The Stackings breaking Victoria's stranglehold on the Regional Restaurant of the Year award.
"It's so nice to be nominated," said David Moyle, head chef at The Stackings,"but to win it up against such great competition is just pretty shocking".
This isn't to say Victoria didn't hold its own - far from it, in fact. George Biron, chef and proprietor of country dining institution Sunnybrae was celebrated for his contribution to hospitality, and Campbell Burton, of Melbourne's Moon Under Water, won Sommelier of the Year. In the peer-voted Chef of the Year award it was Andrew McConnell, of Cutler & Co., who came up trumps.
Nine restaurants around the country scored the coveted three-star rating, and at the end of the countdown came the big one: Restaurant of the Year. Sydney's Momofuku Seiobo beat fierce competition to be named the number-one restaurant on the new Gourmet Traveller Top 100.
"Our team's worked so hard since they've been here. We're not even two years old yet, so hopefully things are just going to get better - the team's going to get stronger and just keep on pushing," said Momofuku Seiobo's Ben Greeno.
Thanks to Vittoria Coffee, Tanqueray and supporting sponsors Smeg, Citizen and Domo, we're proud to bring you the new edition of the restaurant guide. For your copy, and for details on all the award winners, grab the September issue of Gourmet Traveller, on sale now.
