Recipes using turmeric

An old Indian spice lauded for its health benefits, turmeric adds both colour and a peppery, warm, sometimes slightly bitter flavour to food. Use it in curries, with rice, as a paste for grilled meats and in warm winter soups.

Best winter breakfast recipes

If you need a little more convincing than usual to get out of bed when it's cold outside, try these warm, hearty breakfast ideas to get you going, from waffles to warm polenta and smoky beans with bacon.

What to cook this winter

From rib-sticking beef rendang to the perfect goat's cheese quiche, these are the recipes to tick off for winter (so far).

Chocolate hob-nobs

These extra-large oat biscuits are exactly what you need to get through the afternoon slump. Have one with a strong cup of tea and you'll be firing.

Six sweet biscuit recipes

From soft meringue alfajores to chocolate hob nobs and Swedish spiced ginger cookies, these treats will be swept up in a snap.

Roti canai

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.

Winter tart recipes

Tarts are as versatile as they are delicious, and are perfect for baking on a cool winter's day.

Citrus recipes

From tarte au citron to canard a l’orange, citrus flavours have long been friends of French cuisine. Pucker up for a taste of the sun-kissed Mediterranean and further afield with these recipes featuring oranges, lemons, grapefruit and mandarins.

Rockmelon, lemon and gin slushies


You'll need

500 gm rockmelon 100 ml gin 100 ml lemon juice, or to taste, plus wedges to serve   Stock syrup 70 gm caster sugar Thinly peeled rind of ½ lemon

Method

  • 01
  • Coarsely chop melon, place in a container and freeze (overnight).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for stock syrup, combine sugar and 70ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stir until sugar dissolves, bring to the boil, then set aside to cool. Add lemon rind and refrigerate for flavour to infuse (overnight).
  • 03
  • Blend gin, lemon juice, strained stock syrup (discard rind) and frozen rockmelon in a blender, in two batches, until smooth. Pour into chilled glasses and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
This recipe is from the February 2013 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

A bottle of chilled Hendrick’s, a batch of frozen rockmelon and some syrup is all you need to keep guests happy this summer. If you’re entertaining a crowd, set out the prepared ingredients along with a blender and chopping board so your guests can whip up their own cocktails through the day. You’ll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.
