Seven recipes that shaped 1980s fine dining
21.03.2017

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.

Where Melbourne's finest will take the World's Best Chefs
20.03.2017

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.

The art of the coffee-break: six of our favourite sweet treats

Lune, Melbourne

Lune, Melbourne

There's no finer complement to a well-made coffee or tea than a freshly baked treat. We've rounded up some of our favourites from bakeries and cafés around the country for an indulgent addition to your well-deserved downtime.

Lune Croissanterie's croissant
A croissant capable of coaxing Melburnians from slumber at 6am on a Sunday may sound improbable. But as Lune devotees will attest, just one bite of this masterfully buttery and flaky pastry makes all the effort of early rising - and queuing - worth it.
Lune Croissanterie, 119 Rose St, Fitzroy, Vic

Edition Coffee Roasters' scroll
A sweet treat to equal the quality of the coffee is no easy task when the java is this good, but Edition has won our affection with its scrolls as well. Settle in with a batch brew and a delicate cinnamon-dusted yeasty scroll for a balanced start to the day. Get in early though - these guys move quickly.
Edition Coffee Roasters, 265 Liverpool St, Darlinghurst, NSW

Jocelyn's Provisions' friand heart
If you like to spend tea-time lost in the pages of a French romance novel, then Jocelyn's Provisions has the treat for you. These heart-shaped friands with raspberries, roasted almonds and a cream cheese centre are love at first bite.
Jocelyn's Provisions, Shop 8, Centro on James, cnr James & Doggett Sts, Fortitude Valley, Qld, (07) 3852 3799

Sweet Envy's jam doughnut
There's no shortage of choice at this Tassie bakery thanks to the talents of husband and wife duo Alistair and Teena Wise. If you're struggling to commit, their raspberry jam-filled doughnut is our favourite solution to indecision.
Sweet Envy, 341 Elizabeth St, North Hobart, Tas, (03) 6234 8805

Steven ter Horst Chocolatier's Ardbeg bliss
Whisky and chocolate have long been friends in the kitchen. This gâteau from chocolatier Steven ter Horst brings together chocolate Breton shortbread, chocolate mousse, salted caramel and a 10-year-old Ardbeg single malt. Yes please.
Steven ter Horst Chocolatier, 256 Rundle St, Adelaide, SA, (08) 7226 6216

Mary Street Bakery danish
Have you overdosed on Mary Street Bakery's doughnuts recently? It's not hard to do. But if it's time for a change, the plum Danish hits the spot, too.
Mary Street Bakery, 507 Beaufort St, Highgate, WA, 0499 509 300
