A far cry from Tuscany’s familiar gently rolling hills, Monte Argentario’s appealing mix of mountain, ocean, island and lagoon makes it one of Italy’s hidden treasures, writes Emiko Davies.
Kick off winter with a week of cheese tasting.
Farro can be used in almost any dish, from a robust salad to accompany hearty beer-glazed beef short ribs to a new take on risotto with mushrooms, leek and parmesan. Here are 14 ways with this versatile grain.
There's nothing new about Nordic interiors - blond timbers, concrete surfaces, warm, mid-century charm without the twee - and thank heavens for that. It's a style that augments the beauty of everything around it, in this case, gorgeous Hobart harbour, which makes up one whole wall. What is new here, however, is the food - by veterans of Garagistes, which once dazzled diners down the road, Vue de Monde in Melbourne and Gordon Ramsay worldwide. There's a strong Asian bent, but with Tasmanian ingredients. In fact, the kitchen's love of the local verges on obsessive - coconut milk in an aromatic fish curry is replaced with Tasmanian-grown fig leaf simmered in cream to mimic the flavour. Other standouts include a gutsy red-braised lamb with gai lan and chewy cassia spaetzle, pigs' ears zingy with Sichuan pepper and a fresh, springy berry dessert. While the food is sourced locally, the generous wine list spans the planet.
No, it’s not a pop-up. The team behind Sydney’s Moon Park is back with an all-day east-Asian eatery.

Chris Lucas has flown in talent from all over the world, including Eleven Madison Park, for his bold new venture. Here’s what to expect from Kisume.
Here we've scorched apricots on the grill and served them with torn jamon, shaved Manchego and peppery rocket leaves. Think of it as a twist on the good old melon-prosciutto routine. The mixture would also be great served on charred sourdough.
Prepare to enter a picture of the countryside framed by note-perfect Australiana but painted in bold, elegant and unsentimental strokes. Over 10 or more courses, Dan Hunter celebrates his region with dishes that are formally daring (Crunchy prawn heads! Creamy oyster soft-serve! Sea urchin and chicory bread pudding!), yet rich in flavour and substance. The menu could benefit from an edit, but the plates are tightly composed - and what could you cut? Certainly not the limpid broth bathing fronds of abalone and calamari, nor the clever arrangement of lobster played off against charred waxy fingerlings under a swatch of milk skin. The adventure is significantly the richer for the cool gloss of the dining room, some of the most engaging service in the nation and wine pairings that roam with an easy-going confidence. Maturing and relaxing without surrendering a drop of its ambition, Brae is more compelling than ever.
Join team GT for lunch on Victoria's Mornington
Peninsula as we join forces with Gertrude Street Enoteca and Avani
Last January we got together with chef Brigitte Hafner and our friends from Melbourne's Gertrude Street Enoteca to present a pop-up eatery at Avani Winery at Red Hill in Victoria, and we had such a good time that we thought we'd better do it all over again, bigger and better, this year.
"It's all about long lunches and awesome wines," says Gertrude Street's James Broadway. "Brigitte just cooks with whatever great produce she finds. It's very simple - you just come, we feed you and it's fun."
Expect genuinely produce-driven dishes in the style of spaghetti with mussels, chilli, zucchini and pangrattato, roast suckling Berkshire pork with apple, mint and wild fennel salad, peach and amaretto trifle and other favourites from last season, but with a more pronounced Italian flavour this year courtesy of guest chef Francesco Rota, a native of Modena and a veteran of Da Noi and Tea Rooms of Yarck.
"It's very much a collaboration of creative people," says
Hafner. Her friend Lisa Gorman and her husband, Dean Angelucci, are
helping dress the site. "Dean's bringing stylish furniture from his
shop, Angelucci 20th Century in Smith Street, and Lisa will be
bringing her gorgeous prints and colour."
Gertrude Street Enoteca at Avani Winery presented by Gourmet Traveller, lunch prix fixe $65, Wed-Sun from 4-31 January. For further details and bookings, visit gertrudeenoteca.com.
