Most popular recipes summer 2017

Counting down from 20, here are this summer's most-loved recipes.

Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

Chorizo hotdogs with chimichurri and smoky red relish

A hotdog is all about the condiments. Here, choose between a smoky red capsicum relish or the bright flavours of chimichurri, or go for a bit of both.

Bali's new wave of restaurants, hotels and bars

The restaurant and hotel scene on Australia's favourite holiday island has never been more exciting and Australian chefs, owners and restaurateurs are leading the charge, writes Samantha Coomber.

Australia's best rieslings

We’re spoilt for variety – and value – in Australia when it comes to good riesling. Max Allen picks the top 20 from a fine crop.

Curtis Stone's strawberry and almond cheesecake

"I've made all kinds of fancy cheesecakes in my time, but nothing really beats the classic combination of strawberries and almonds with a boost from vanilla bean," says Stone. "I could just pile macerated strawberries on top, but why not give your tastebuds a proper party by folding grilled strawberries into the cheesecake batter too? Cheesecakes are elegant and my go-to for celebrations because they taste best when whipped up a day in advance."

Baguette recipes

These baguette recipes are picture-perfect and picnic ready, bursting with fillings like slow-cooked beef tongue, poached egg and grilled asparagus and classic leg ham and cheese.

Petition, Perth

Our restaurant critics' picks of the latest and best eats around the country right now: Petition, Perth.

Perth's past meets its present at the State Buildings, the new identity of the rebooted and restored Treasury buildings. While the plan is to open the precinct in stages - Como The Treasury, Australia's first Como hotel, begins welcoming guests this week while David Thompson's equally anticipated Long Chim opens next month - one of its first public offerings is Petition, a smart-casual trio encompassing restaurant, well-stocked enoteca and craft-beer bar.

While each venue sports its own menu, the eating is best at the airy dining room where chef Jesse Blake and his brigade operate. Informed by his time at Cumulus Inc (well-travelled eaters might notice the presence of "comestibles" on the menu), Blake's opening dishes are notable for their subtle inventiveness. Tender curls of squid and an ink-stained buckwheat risotto is a smart pairing, while beef tartare gets lightened with thickly cut radish, sesame seeds and a dab of sour cream. Then there's the kitchen's winning pea soup remix - a comforting combo starring braised turnips, peas, ham and addictively savoury parmesan crumbs.

Coupled with bright-eyed service and nifty wine choices, Petition makes a fine introduction to the city's newest food and drink emporium.

Petition, 28 Barrack St (cnr Barrack St & St Georges Tce), Perth, WA, (08) 6168 7771. Open Mon-Fri 7am-midnight, Sat-Sun 8am-midnight.
