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.

Fig recipes

Figs. We can't get enough of them. Here are a few sweet and savoury ways to add them to your summer spread.

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."

Most popular recipes summer 2017

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

Top Australian chefs to follow on Instagram in 2017

A lot has changed since we first published our pick of the best chefs to follow on Instagram (way back in the dark ages of 2013). Here’s who we’re double-tapping on the photo-sharing app right now.

Christine Manfield recipes

As the '90s dawned, darling chefs were pushing the boundaries of cooking in this country. A young Christine Manfield, just starting out at this heady time, soon became part of the generation that redefined modern Australian cuisine. She shares some of her timeless signatures from the era.

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.

Sleep in a Grampians olive grove this autumn

Under Sky are popping up with a luxe camping hotel experience at Mount Zero Olives this April.

Sydney's Best Thai

The argument: Sydney is the best place to eat Thai outside Asia. The evidence: the pioneering Spice I Am (90 Wentworth Ave, Surry Hills, 02 9280 0928) and its spin-offs, the Isaan House (202 Elizabeth St, Surry Hills, 02 9280 0364), and, upstairs at the same site, the more pan-Asian Surry Hills Eating House. Then there's Chat Thai (our picks are its Thaitown HQ at 20 Campbell St, Sydney, 02 9221 1808, and the glossier Westfield branch; Level 6, Westfield Sydney, Cnr Pitt & Market Sts, Sydney, 02 9221 0600), and its newer offshoots, Assámm (Shop 17, Lower Ground Floor, Queen Victoria Building, Sydney, 02 9261 0204) and Boon Café (1/425 Pitt St, Sydney, 02 9281 2114). Sailors Thai (106 George St, The Rocks, 02 9251 2466) and Longrain (85 Commonwealth St, Surry Hills, 02 9280 2888) offer fine Thai eats in a full-service setting. North of the bridge it's all about the buzzy Khao Pla (7/370-374 Victoria Ave, Chatswood, 02 9412 4978) and its new food-court branch Chum Tang (Shop 5, Podium Level, Chatswood Interchange, 438 Victoria Ave, Chatswood, 02 9419 2872). For serious heat, head back to Chinatown for southern Thai specialist Caysorn (1/8 Quay St, Sydney, 02 9211 5749).
