Hot 100 2017: food trends

Life moves fast in the world of food and restaurants. How do you keep up? By reading our Hot 100 round-up of the latest and greatest in store for your tastebuds in 2017. It's time to eat!

Automata opening in Singapore

One of Sydney’s hottest restaurants is about to branch out in Asia.

Bread and butter pudding

Just what you need on a cold winter's night; a bowl of luscious pudding. Make sure to leave room for seconds.

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.

Coffee culture: A history

Australia’s love affair with coffee is stronger than ever; it’s become a way of life. But exactly how did a beverage manage to shape our country’s culture?

Tarta de Santiago

"Gordita makes a splendid version of the Galician almond cake Tarta de Santiago, with its dramatic design. Would you please publish the recipe?" Michael MacDermott, Taringa, Qld REQUEST A RECIPE To request a recipe, email fareexchange@bauer-media.com.au or send us a message via Facebook. Please include the restaurant's name and address, as well as your name and address. Please note that because of the volume of requests we receive, we can only publish a selection in the magazine.

Autumn's most popular recipes 2017

As the weather started to cool down, your stoves were heating up with spicy curries, hearty breakfast dishes and comforting bowls of pasta. You balanced things out nicely with some greens but dessert wasn't entirely forgotten. Counting down from 30, here are your 2017 autumn favourites.

Entrecôte City, Melbourne

Our restaurant critics' picks of the latest and best eats around the country right now: Entrecôte City, Melbourne.

The Alfred Place space once home to Prix Fixe has reopened as Entrecôte City, a more ambitious version of serial restaurateur Jason Jones's French-themed steakhouse in South Yarra. Marble-topped bistro tables, white tiles, opaque spherical glass light shades suspended from brass rods and a red neon sign are pure theme-park. Interesting video art and a more luxurious, less French-décor-101 approach in the upper dining room save it from collapsing under the weight of cliché. Another plus is the presence of chef Jason Rodwell (late of Albert St Food & Wine), who oversees a more substantial offering than at the South Yarra original with noticeable finesse. Steak frites is still the central event (decent Hopkins River porterhouse with bottomless fries, herb butter and a soft-leaf salad with a Dijon dressing), but there's also a strong seafood showing that includes oysters served with shallot vinaigrette and fresh lemon, a rather good scallop carpaccio with peas, lemon and crème fraîche, and a couple of pricey, hefty seafood platters (the $170 Grande Marée includes crab, prawns, oysters and sea urchin). There's also a decent breakfast menu (pastries, eggs, croquet-monsieur) and well-made coffee for a mere $2.50. The decently priced wine list leans French and there are good cocktails and a short, smart list of apéritifs. There's nothing here to scare the horses but Francophiles should be very happy indeed.

Entrecôte City, 6 Alfred Pl, Melbourne, Vic, (03) 9654 8184. Open Mon-Sat 7am-midnight.
