Step away from the “dessert yoghurt", writes Will Studd. The real unadulterated thing is much more rewarding.
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.
Single-source honey putting community and sustainability next to sweetness.
More and more adventurous local winemakers are embracing Vermouth's botanicals, writes Max Allen.
Indonesia's Komodo National Park is home to staggering scenery and biodiversity. Michael Harden sets sail in a handcrafted yacht to explore its remote islands in pared-back luxury.

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.
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.
Will your next baking project be a flaky puff pastry with pumpkin, goat's curd and thyme, or a classic bacon and Stilton tart? As autumn settles in, we're ticking these off one by one.
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.

Sydney’s Eleven Bridge to close. For real this time. Sort of. Again.
Whether baked into a bubbling crumble, caramelised in a puff-pastry tart or served in an all-American pie, apples are a classic filling for fruity desserts. Here are the recipes we keep coming back to.
Cue the Champagne.
Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.
Discussing the real issues faced by chefs and producers.
There's something to be said for doing things in situ. You're going to love cooking from Matt Stone's new book (see page 106), and the ways he makes minimising waste an exercise in generosity.
But you'll also love seeing how Stone does it back at his place, when "his place" in this case happens to be the stunning Oakridge estate in the Yarra Valley.
Here Stone has enviable resources at his disposal - stunning local produce and the occasional edible insect among them - and puts them to great use in one of the country's most progressive new restaurants.
See for yourself at a four-course lunch to celebrate his first book, The Natural Cook. It'll be an afternoon of great ideas framed in great food. (And the wine's no slouch, either.) "My ethos is not only what I cook but what I choose to cook with," says Stone. "Australian cuisine is all about embracing our native ingredients."
That translates on the day to the likes of whitebait seasoned with crushed ants, and foraged greens with kangaroo and indigenous spices.
Duck breast, beetroot, fermented turnip and kale.
"In the Yarra, you're surrounded by amazing produce, which helps in making ethical choices," says Stone. Add in splendid views, two stunning desserts, and estate wines selected by Oakridge winemaker David Bicknell, and we think you'll agree that a little green living is good for the soul.
Join us for lunch at noon on Sunday, 28 August at Oakridge, 864 Maroondah Hwy, Coldstream, Vic. The cost of $120 includes four courses and a $10 donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. To book, call (03) 9738 9900. For more on the OCRF, call 1300 OVARIAN or visit ocrf.com.au
