"This is about dignity. This is about anyone walking through this door, taking what they need, and only giving back if they can."
These four desserts have one thing in common – Anzac biscuits.
Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.
We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.
Here are four spins on the classic French eclair, from Flour & Stone's pillowy choux pastry with salted caramel to a colourful take with strawberry-flecked creme fraiche filling and sprinkled pistachios on top.

"12. I'm now sitting at Noma with no shoes on. I feel like a toddler in a sandpit."
Whether paired with cream cheese, ginger, orange icing or caramel, carrot cakes are an autumnal sensation. Here are four to try.
Talk about big shoes to fill. First it was Noma's Sydney home. Now, on the same
waterfront site at Barangaroo, comes Cirrus. The fourth establishment from Brent
Savage and Nick Hildebrandt, the names behind Bentley, Monopole and Yellow, it's a step in a new direction. The
focus is seafood but, says Savage, it's also about new
"The type of cooking we're doing at Cirrus is very different to our other restaurants," the chef says. "The palate is much broader. We're using native ingredients, but there's also umami and Asian undertones."
The inspiration behind the restaurant's name is the (broadly) cloud-shaped Anadara building in which it's located. The interior designed by Pascale Gomes-McNabb, Savage and Hildebrandt's collaborator on Bentley, Yellow and Monopole, is warmer and more eclectic than the Noma fit-out.
"Pascale still has quite a few tricks up her sleeve," says Savage. "There are some weird and wacky elements, including a vintage speedboat hanging from the ceiling."
Join us and be among the first to savour this new direction. The menu kicks off with a platter of oysters, marinated prawns and cured cobia, followed by raw kingfish in yuzu. Whole snapper in a native-pepper sauce, to share between two, is steamed then baked and served with crisp fried warrigal greens, saltbush, basil and mint. Rounding out the meal is a chocolate cake layered with orange jelly, orange marmalade and wattle cream. "Wattle has a real depth about it," says Savage, "like coffee, so it works really well with the chocolate."
Hildebrandt is recognised as one of the top sommeliers in the country (and Gourmet Traveller's 2015 Sommelier of the Year), so you can count on the wine side of things being as exciting as the food.
Read our interview with Savage and Hildebrandt
about the Cirrus menu and design inspiration here.
Comparisons with the site's previous tenant, Savage says, aren't something to which he and the team have given much thought. "Cirrus is about having delicious, sustainable seafood in a casual setting. Noma was a once-in-a-lifetime experience; we're hoping that people want to, and can, come back to Cirrus again and again." We're there.
Join us for dinner at 6.30pm on Monday 24 October at Cirrus, 23 Barangaroo Ave, Sydney, NSW. The cost of $140 includes four courses and matched wines, and a $10 donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. To book, call (02) 8214 0505.
