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.

Gourmet Traveller 2009 Australian Restaurant Guide Award Nominees

We have the great pleasure of announcing the nominees for our annual restaurant awards. The awards, held in conjunction with the launch of the 2009 edition of the Gourmet Traveller Australian Restaurant Guide (Australia’s most-read and only national guide!) in association with Electrolux, were announced at a ceremony in Sydney on August 18, and named the 2009 Australian Restaurant of the Year, the most prestigious award for restaurants in the country. The full results of the awards, the stars and the top 100 Australian restaurants are published in the September Gourmet Traveller, which comes bundled with the restaurant guide, and on our website.

This is the first year we’ve published the names of the nominees in each category (except for Restaurant of the Year), partly because with our new website we have a forum fitting to do so, but mostly because we want to acknowledge the great wealth of talent in our hospitality industry. Many of the awards were very close, and the nominees are all richly deserving of your attention whether they get the gong in the end or not.

Stay tuned to gourmettraveller.com.au for updates and for exclusive video, photos and interviews from the awards, and keep your eyes peeled for the September issue of the magazine for the full story.
