Billed as the faster, cleaner way to cook, are these on-trend ovens all they’re cracked up to be? We take a close look at their rising popularity, USP versus the traditional convection cooker and how each type rates in terms of form, function, and above all, flavour in this buyer’s guide.

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.
Cue the Champagne.

Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.

"Come in for good times." The flagstone out front doesn't lie: three years on, The Town Mouse remains the toast of Melbourne, an assuming space of tiled walls and timbered courtyard where the standard of service, food and wine always delights. The fun starts with just-baked sourdough, the crust chewy and lightly charred, with lovage butter, and profiteroles spiked with goat's cheese and honey from hives behind the back fence. Plates are small but perfectly formed: cold-smoked kingfish in sourdough miso; beef tartare tumbled with saltbush; a tomato salad laced with pungent basils and fennel breadcrumbs. Perceptive staff are full bottle on wines - tell them what style you fancy and they'll rattle off the (often natural, organic and bio) options. The enduring success of Dave Verheul's menu is that it's on-trend but never trite. One lick of the goat's milk ice-cream topped with salted lavender caramel will silence any doubters.
