With an endless coastline, bushwalks and vineyards aplenty, plus agreeable temperatures year-round, Port Macquarie might just be the east coast’s best kept secret winter getaway.
Michael Harden gives us a rundown on the menu at Tipo 00's new "not pasta" sibling. Surprisingly, his recommendations include a few killer pastas.
Matthew Breen, head chef and co-owner of tiny Templo on the backstreets of Hobart, sits down to chat about the current menu, fennel and what to do with carrot tops.
Bring a splash of striking copper to your kitchen with these burnished essentials.

Just what you need on a cold winter's night; a bowl of luscious pudding. Make sure to leave room for seconds.
Australia’s love affair with coffee is stronger than ever; it’s become a way of life. But exactly how did a beverage manage to shape our country’s culture?
As the weather started to cool down, your stoves were heating up with spicy curries, hearty breakfast dishes and comforting bowls of pasta. You balanced things out nicely with some greens but dessert wasn't entirely forgotten. Counting down from 30, here are your 2017 autumn favourites.
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.
What's next for the unstoppable spirit?
The name 'beef cheek' really does refer to the facial cheek muscle of a cow. It's a tough, lean cut of meat often braised or cooked slowly to produce a tender and delicious result. Here are some of our favourite ways to serve them up.
Spoiler alert: there's a whole new section dedicated to cheese.
Say a big hello to autumn. In most parts of the world, it's a season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. In Victoria it heralds the altogether less mellow excitement of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. Ten days of thinking about food, talking about food and - the best part of all - eating food. And, when it comes to festival highlights, let's not forget the wine.
Fromage a Trois
In the case of Fromage a Trois, let's not forget the cider. In the lush grounds of Werribee Park Mansion, a mini cheese and wine festival features a whole bunch of boutique cider-producers getting together with artisan cheesemakers. Cider and cheese? Yes please. Plus, a whole spit-roasted pig glazed with apple cider makes perfect sense.
Tickets $35 pre-sale, $40 on event day, from 10.30am, Sunday 6 March, Werribee Park Mansion, K Road, Werribee South
The Tasting Room - Oregon vs Victoria Pinot
The trilby-wearers of wine, Victoria's pinot noir producers, will be put through their paces by their Oregon counterparts in the Tasting Room. In this cool-climate smackdown, you'll be able to taste wine from America's burgeoning northwest region alongside Victorian heroes such as Bindi, Bass Phillip and Curly Flat. Competition will be fierce, but it's not all about a fight to the death: there will be plenty of stories about winemaking from both sides of the Pacific woven into the action. Better red than dead, we say.
Tickets, $45, from 12.15pm, Saturday 5 March, Glasshouse, Olympic Blv, Olympic Park
All the Snacks
This version of Perfect Match banishes Dexter the robot and welcomes Matt Skinner to adjudicate the sweet union of food and wine. The event will feature rising-star chef Analiese Gregory and irascible wine fellow and GT contributor Mike Bennie talking about - yes, you guessed it - snack and drink matching, all inspired by their recent trip to Japan.
Tickets $85, from 12.15pm, Sunday 6 March, Glasshouse, Olympic Blv, Olympic Park
Duck: From Beak to Tail
The spirit of Fergus Henderson may very well be present at this event. Respect the whole quacker at a duck dégustation at Docklands restaurant Chiara, with matched wines from TarraWarra Estate.
Tickets $95, from 6.30pm, Wednesday 9 March, Chiara, 705 Collins St, Docklands
Big Gay Ice Cream
Last, but by no means least, get your lips around a Salty Pimp - a vanilla soft-serve topped with dulce de leche, sprinkled with sea salt and dipped in chocolate. It's the signature offering of New York's cultish Big Gay Ice Cream, a food truck (now joined by three shops and a book) that first revved its engine in 2009. Big Gay Ice Cream's Douglas Quint and Bryan Petroff will be the kings of the Ice Creamery at The Urban Dairy, this year's festival hub, which is an ode to the mammalian output that keeps us in milk, cheese and Salty Pimps. Just say moo.
Free admission, from 11am, 4-6 March, Queensbridge Sq, Southbank
