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.

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.

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.

GT reader dinner: Missy French, Sydney

Josephine Perry and Chris Benedet, Missy French, Sydney

Josephine Perry and Chris Benedet, Missy French, Sydney

Missy French, Josephine Perry's new brasserie, brings more than a touch of glam to Sydney's Potts Point. Join us for a soirée of French-accented good times.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Or at least it doesn't in the case of the new generation of the Perry clan. At the ripe old age of 21, Josephine Perry, eldest daughter of Rockpool Group founder Neil Perry, has become a restaurateur in her own right.

La fille Perry's début, Missy French, brings a polished French-accented package to Sydney's Potts Point, and there's no skimping on the glamour. Grant Cheyne, a designer who has done no small amount of work for Perry père, has wrought a chic, contemporary look in shades of grey picked out in careful, elegant lighting. White-shirted staff glide between crisply clothed tables dispensing good drops from a French-Australian wine list put together by Rockpool Bar & Grill sommelier Richard Healy. In the kitchen, too, things are kept in the family, with Chris Benedet, a Rockpool chef, composing tight, full-flavoured plates.

For this month's Fine Dining Lovers' reader dinner, the Missy French team present a menu of French classics, including chicken liver parfait, suckling pig sausage with pomme purée and chocolate délice with banana and rum sorbet, all accompanied by Healy's wine matches. "Expect a great night with tasty food and delicious wine," says Perry the younger. "And hopefully lots of laughs."

Join us for dinner at 6.30pm on Monday 26 October at Missy French, 22 Rockwall Cres, Potts Point, NSW. The cost of $120 per person includes three courses, wines by the glass, Sanpellegrino water and a $10 donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. To book, call (02) 8599 4912. For more on the OCRF, call 1300 OVARIAN or visit ocrf.com.au.
