Coffee culture: A history

Australia’s love affair with coffee is stronger than ever; it’s become a way of life. But exactly how did a beverage manage to shape our country’s culture?

Tarta de Santiago

"Gordita makes a splendid version of the Galician almond cake Tarta de Santiago, with its dramatic design. Would you please publish the recipe?" Michael MacDermott, Taringa, Qld REQUEST A RECIPE To request a recipe, email fareexchange@bauer-media.com.au or send us a message via Facebook. Please include the restaurant's name and address, as well as your name and address. Please note that because of the volume of requests we receive, we can only publish a selection in the magazine.

Freshly cut roses from the garden, blushing mangoes lined up on the kitchen pass, and the boom and spray of the surf making their way over the road from the beach: light, bright and human in its scale, Sean's is the epitome of Bondi dining. (The prices, too, are also very Bondi.) There's an ease to the cooking and the smiling, genuine service here that comes from decades of experience, and a sunny confidence that matches the setting. Gentle twists and superb sourcing give the produce-driven plates a luxury born of flavour and freshness rather than excess. Marron in place of prawns in a crisply dressed cocktail of watercress, avocado and iceberg, for instance, or salted mackerel and the briny crunch of sea succulents accenting meaty north-coast albacore. Breezy it may be, but care is taken with the details: wine leans local and classic, and perfumed nectarines with vanilla ice-cream and raspberry jelly close a meal in rare style. Sublime.
