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."

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.

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.

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 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."

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.

Margaret River Gourmet Escape line-up announced

Feast in the Forest at Margaret River Gourmet Escape 2015

Feast in the Forest at Margaret River Gourmet Escape 2015

New names dominate the line-up of this year's food and wine festival.

Nigella! Okay, now that we've got that out of the way, we can say that this November the fifth annual Margaret River Gourmet Escape sees a fresh crop of big-name cooks and chefs descend on Western Australia's south-west for a weekend of good eating, drinking and living.

While Lawson and fellow television presenter (and Margaret River guest emeritus) Rick Stein might be the most recognisable of this year's guests, the Gourmet Escape class of 2016 has no shortage of big hitters from the restaurant world.

Among the first round of line-up announcements are three chefs from the top 10 restaurants in the World's 50 Best: Joan Roca from former top-ranked restaurant El Celler de Can Roca (currently number two), Mauro Colagreco from Mirazur (number six) in France and Andoni Luis Aduriz from Spain's Mugaritz (number seven).

Other names from the influential list include Londoners Isaac McHale of The Clove Club (number 26 and winner of the highest new entry award this year) and Ashley Palmer-Watts from Dinner by Heston Blumenthal (number 45), as well as Thai food authority David Thompson from Bangkok's Nahm (number 37) and Long Chim. Dominique Crenn, winner of World's Best Female Chef 2016 and owner of Atelier Crenn and Petit Crenn in San Francisco will also appear at the event.

This year's line-up also features plenty of firepower from Sydney and Melbourne. Signing on for another year are past festival guests Peter Gilmore (Quay, Bennelong), Mark Best (Pei Modern) and Frank Camorra (MoVida). Among this year's newcomers are Mitch Orr (Acme), Analiese Gregory (Bar Brosé) and Lennox Hastie (Firedoor) from Sydney, while Andrew McConnell (Cutler & Co, Marion, Supernormal, Cumulus Inc) and Scott Pickett (Estelle by Scott Pickett) will be some of the chefs flying the flag for Melbourne.

Margaret River Gourmet Escape runs November 18-20. Tickets to events go on sale on Friday July 22. gourmetescape.com.au
