Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

Flour and Stone Recipes

Baker extraordinaire Nadine Ingram of Sydney's Flour and Stone cooks up a sweet storm for Easter, including the much loved bakery's greatest hit.

Roasted cauliflower salad with yoghurt dressing and almonds

The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

All Star Yum Cha

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

Lemon tart

It's really important to seal the pastry well to prevent any seepage during cooking, and to trim the pastry soon after cooking. Let the tart cool in the tin before removing it, or it will crack.

Spelt cashew and broccoli bowl with yoghurt dressing

This nicely textured salad transports well, making it ideal for picnics or to take to barbecues. The broccoli can be kept raw and shaved on a mandolin, too.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.

Bali's new wave of restaurants, hotels and bars

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.

GT reader dinner: Billy Kwong, Sydney

Billy Kwong has reopened in new Potts Point digs and you can join us to celebrate Chinese New Year.

Billy Kwong has landed in Potts Point. Kylie Kwong spent two months moving from its Surry Hills birthplace to the new Macleay Street digs, and it's been time well spent. Billy Kwong 2.0 is bigger and better than ever, which is why we're thrilled to be collaborating with Kwong for a Chinese-Australian feast in celebration of the Lunar New Year.

"What you can expect from the new Billy Kwong is basically everything I've always wanted to offer but I never had the space or the wherewithal," says Kwong. "We have a huge restaurant with a 140-seat capacity, we have 24/7 online booking, we have an amazingly beautiful bar... but I think it's important to note, too, that we're trying to maintain that same cosy, intimate, mad, magical feel of Crown Street, Surry Hills, but in a much bigger and more comfortable space."

The spirit of Crown Street lives on through the menu, too, which offers all the Billy Kwong classics along with some new thrills. Mark Eather's ocean trout, for example, which at Surry Hills was served as siu mai dumplings, makes a comeback as tartare. Steamed mini pork buns, meanwhile, are jazzed-up with honey from hives on the rooftop of nearby Wayside Chapel.

So join us on 23 February as we ring in the year of the sheep (ram or goat, if you prefer). Gong xi fa cai.

Join us at 6.30pm on Monday, 23 February at Billy Kwong, shop 1, 28 Macleay St, Potts Point. Bookings (02) 9332 3300. The cost of $120 per person includes natural beer, wine by the glass, Sanpellegrino waters and $10 donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.
