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.

Fig recipes

Figs. We can't get enough of them. Here are a few sweet and savoury ways to add them to your summer spread.

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."

Most popular recipes summer 2017

Counting down from 20, here are this summer's most-loved recipes.

Top Australian chefs to follow on Instagram in 2017

A lot has changed since we first published our pick of the best chefs to follow on Instagram (way back in the dark ages of 2013). Here’s who we’re double-tapping on the photo-sharing app right now.

Christine Manfield recipes

As the '90s dawned, darling chefs were pushing the boundaries of cooking in this country. A young Christine Manfield, just starting out at this heady time, soon became part of the generation that redefined modern Australian cuisine. She shares some of her timeless signatures from the era.

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.

Pork belly and kimchi stew with cauliflower “rice”


"Korean food has really made its mark in Australia over the last five years, and rightly so. It's packed with flavour, steeped in culture and they've perfected so many wonderful cooking techniques," says Evans. "One of their signature dishes, that most people have heard of, is kimchi, a dish of spiced fermented cabbage that pretty much rocks my world on a weekly basis. We always have a few jars of kimchi in our fridge at home that we make from scratch and, like other fermented vegetables, it's full of beneficial bacteria, which our guts love. It's important to note that once fermented vegetables are heated, they lose this bacteria."

You'll need

60 ml (1/4 cup) tamari 1 tbsp sesame oil 1 tbsp finely grated ginger 1 tsp honey 1 kg pork belly, cut into 2.5cm dice 2 tbsp ghee, macadamia oil or coconut oil 8 shiitake mushrooms 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped 3 spring onions, thinly sliced, plus extra to serve 750 ml (3 cups) chicken stock 300 gm kimchi, drained and coarsely chopped ½ tsp Korean chilli powder (gochugaru; see note) ½ carrot, peeled and coarsely grated   Cauliflower “rice” 1 kg cauliflower, broken into florets, stems coarsely chopped 2 tbsp coconut oil

Method

  • 01
  • Combine tamari, sesame oil, ginger, honey and pork in a large bowl and toss to coat meat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate to marinate (1 hour).
  • 02
  • Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add pork belly (reserving marinade) and brown, turning occasionally (5 minutes). Add mushrooms, garlic and spring onions and sauté until softened (1-2 minutes). Add reserved marinade and chicken stock to pan, then add kimchi and chilli powder, and bring to the boil. Gently simmer, covered until pork belly is tender (35-40 minutes), then add carrots, stir to combine and season to taste.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for cauliflower “rice”, pulse cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles grains of rice. Heat coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat, add cauliflower and stir occasionally until softened (4-6 minutes). Season to taste, then serve with pork belly and kimchi stew, scattered with spring onions.

Note Gochugaru is available from Korean and Asian grocers.
