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.

André’s Cucina & Polenta Bar
-34.924429,138.608089

André's kitchen has progressed significantly since opening four years ago as a polenta bar, embracing more complex northern Italian dishes piqued by distinctive touches. Informative staff keep service flowing in the small, crowded and very noisy room. With bentwood chairs and timber tables, it has the vibe of a thriving trattoria - especially with diners sharing antipasti and superior salumi boards, and four creamy polenta options. It gets more serious with robust mains: slow-cooked lamb shoulder basted with mirto, adding a hint of myrtle berry sweetness to counter smoky grilled eggplant. Deep comfort is found in outstanding pasta dishes such as fresh gnocchi with ragù, ravioli filled with smoked eggplant and ricotta, and cavatelli with blue swimmer crab. The smart move is to choose the $59 menu fisso and let the kitchen feed you a generous procession of tastes, through to the signature dessert of beautiful bomboloni.
