Hot 100 2017: food trends

Life moves fast in the world of food and restaurants. How do you keep up? By reading our Hot 100 round-up of the latest and greatest in store for your tastebuds in 2017. It's time to eat!

Automata opening in Singapore

One of Sydney’s hottest restaurants is about to branch out in Asia.

Bread and butter pudding

Just what you need on a cold winter's night; a bowl of luscious pudding. Make sure to leave room for seconds.

Feta and greens gozleme

A lot of rolling and folding go into making this Turkish flatbread, but when you bite into them all the hard work will be forgotten. The traditional filling is silverbeet, but we've added kale and fresh herbs for fragrance and flavour. A good sprinkle of salt at the end and a squeeze of lemon are non-negotiable. Start this recipe a day ahead to rest the dough.

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.

You can try and kid yourself by sticking to the raw and cured section of The Fish Shop's menu, and while you'll be rewarded with a knockout pickled octopus and white bean salad (speckled with punchy hits of dried olive), the real action is in the deep-fryer. Order a potato scallop before you even look at the wine list (beer-battered, chicken-salted potato being the perfect match to any drink) before getting stuck into a bowl of battered flathead, crisp and juicy, and unlike anything you'll get from a takeaway. Strode's fish sandwich burger belongs in Sydney's top-five best burgers list, the combo of crumbed fish, bacon and jalapeños a must-try (and a must-eat-again-and-again). Recent refurbs have added some roomier tables and taken away some of the beach-shack clutter that made this place feel like a theme-park knock-off - now it just feels like a great spot for an afternoon wine and a deep-fried dinner.
