Sydney's best dishes 2016

For our 50th anniversary issue in 2016, we scoured Australia asking two questions: What dishes are making waves right now? What flavours will take us into the next half-century? Sydney provided 16 answers.

Best travel destinations in 2017

We're thinking big for travelling in 2017 - and so should you. Will we see you sunrise at Java's 9th-century Borobudur Buddhist temple, across the table at Reykjavik's newest restaurants or swimming side-by-side with humpback whales off Western Australia's coast?

Summer feta recipes

Whether in a fresh salad or seasonal seafood dish, feta's creamy tang can be used to add interest to a variety of summer dishes.

Christmas vegetarian recipes

The versatility of vegetarian dishes means they can be served alongside meat and seafood, or enjoyed simply as they are. With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve put together some of our favourite vegetarian recipes to appease both herbivores and carnivores alike.

Lost Picnic

Lost Picnic is a new music festival with a culinary twist. Come 23 March, you can forget the food queues for fish tacos and gözleme of dubious quality, Martin Boetz of Rushcutters and Maurice Terzini of Icebergs have packed lunch for you.

"There's no reason why you can't enjoy fine food and good music in a family-friendly setting," says Terzini, who is collaborating with catering company Cherry Kitchen. "We've created hampers that make it easy for festival-goers to have the food they love, and have come to expect, without the hassle."

In designing the picnic hampers, both Terzini and Boetz have taken inspiration from their respective backgrounds. For Terzini that means Italian soul food, including bresaola involtini with goat's cheese and caramelised onion, and tiramisù. Boetz, meanwhile, has drawn on the same northern European heritage that inspires the menu at Rushcutters to create a spread made for sharing: smoked meats, potato salad and potted trout confit with beetroot relish are among the offerings, using ingredients sourced mostly from his Cooks Co-Op on the Hawkesbury.

Like the food, the musical line-up has a local focus. Megan Washington is headlining the afternoon, performing previously unreleased material from her new album, with Dustin Tebbutt, Emma Louise, Sons of the East and The Rubens also on stage.

Tickets for Lost Picnic are $99, and the hampers, $69, can be booked ahead online. So bring a blanket, claim your territory and settle in for a day of fine food and fun in the sun.
