Most popular recipes summer 2017

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

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."

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.

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.

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.

Bali's new wave of restaurants, hotels and bars

The restaurant and hotel scene on Australia's favourite holiday island has never been more exciting and Australian chefs, owners and restaurateurs are leading the charge, writes Samantha Coomber.

Northern Vietnamese and Thai food with a clean, contemporary twist sum up the menu here, but the recent addition of a new bar, function room and terrace, larger kitchen and wine room have added extra spice. Otherwise, the winning recipe remains the same - knowledgeable staff steer you through smart selections from an encyclopedic global wine list, while chef Tuoi Do, with an eye on freshness, continually tweaks her outstanding menu, designed as food to share. Well-balanced flavours and textures define the signature opener of Hampshire pork wrapped in betel leaves. Among the main courses, lightly grilled quail with goji berries is given aromatic lift with Vietnamese herbs, while the depth of flavour of snapper in yellow curry is a highlight. The superb cellar may tempt diners to bypass dessert, but that could be a strategic error, especially if the tapioca with orange and Sichuan pepper ice-cream, coconut panna cotta or lime brûlée are on offer.
