Most popular recipes summer 2017

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

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."

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.

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.

World's Best Chefs Talks

Massimo Bottura and more are coming to the Sydney Opera House.

Baguette recipes

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.

Fast summer dinners

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.

Curtis Stone's strawberry and almond cheesecake

"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."

Bacon Brewfest 2016

Our Bacon and tomato polenta crust pie

Our Bacon and tomato polenta crust pie

After the runaway success of the inaugural Bacon Festival last year, Newtown café Cuckoo Callay is all set to lay on another celebration of all things bacon and beer. In support of Australian Pork, this Saturday's Bacon Brewfest showcases more ways to prepare all-Australian pork than anyone could possibly imagine, while also heralding a 12-week bacon menu at Cuckoo Callay.

A group of cured-pork enthusiasts will unite for the day, including Newtown's Black Star Pastry and the team from boutique cheese bar, The Stinking Bishops. You can also look forward to sampling Grumpy Donuts' maple bacon doughnut bars with American-style candied bacon, and the Porky Pig burger - twice-cooked pork belly, sauerkraut, fried onion and crisp bacon - by Josh Arthurs, founder of pop-up burger joint, Burgers by Josh.

Craft beer will flow from the likes of 4 Pines Brewing Company, Willie the Boatman, Batch Brewing Co and others, accompanied by a musical line-up including Sydney band The Cope Street Parade and Central Coast singer/songwriter Jacob Pearson.

Bacon Brewfest, 27 February, noon-9pm, Central Park, 28 Broadway, Chippendale, NSW. Tickets are $30 plus a booking fee. Tickets are available until sold out from the festival's website.

Try our recipe for the above bacon and tomato polenta crust pie.
