OzHarvest opens Australia's first free supermarket

Anzac biscuit desserts

These four desserts have one thing in common – Anzac biscuits.

Six sexy panna cottas

We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.

Persian red lentil soup with tahini, beetroot and fried mint

Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.

Eclair recipes

Here are four spins on the classic French eclair, from Flour & Stone's pillowy choux pastry with salted caramel to a colourful take with strawberry-flecked creme fraiche filling and sprinkled pistachios on top.

Fifty-four thoughts at Noma Mexico

Melbourne's best cheap eats

Cafe Di Stasio

Cafe Di Stasio

The best places in Melbourne to catch a bargain meal.

There are real bargains to be found at lunch, with set-course deals at places such as Café Di Stasio, Yu-u and Maha, while Shannon Bennett's diffusion brand Café Vue (430 Little Collins St, Melbourne, 03 9691 3899) does a great line in quality pies, salads and burgers.

There's good Malaysian fare at Mamak (366 Lonsdale St, Melbourne, 03 9670 3137) including impressive house-made roti. 

Yu-u

At The Moor's Head (2/774 High St, Thornbury, 03 9484 0173) the team from Rumi make "inauthentic" pizza with a Middle-Eastern bent. Hell of the North (135 Greeves St, Fitzroy, 03 9417 6660) is a beautifully designed side-street bar and restaurant serving a European bistro-leaning menu that's one of the gentrified suburb's true bargains.

And the precision focus of Gami Chicken and Beer (535 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne, 03 9670 3232)  - Korean fried chicken and cold beer - would be just as wonderful even without the super-low prices.
