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."

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.

Melbourne’s Rosa’s Kitchen has closed

Rosa's Cannoli

Rosa's Cannoli

Melbourne restaurant Rosa's Kitchen has closed. After assessing the damage from a kitchen fire that flared up mid-last month, Rosa Mitchell has permanently ceased service at the CBD favourite.

The fire comes as an odd and somewhat anti-climactic force of hand for Mitchell, as today it was revealed there were plans in the works to close the restaurant anyway.

Located in the heart of Melbourne's CBD, the Sicilian-born chef's restaurant was known for its cheesy frittata and generous antipasti, as well as its pasta- and produce-driven menu. Opened in 2013, Rosa's Kitchen was Mitchell's anticipated return to central Melbourne after a stint in Williamstown and repeated pop-ups.

But it isn't all bad news. With more time on her hands, Mitchell plans to take a more hands-on approach at her Yandoit farm and is looking into new ventures, as well as spending more time working at Rosa's Canteen, the Kitchen's Bourke Street off-shoot. Anyone pining for Mitchell's house-made ravioli or ricotta cannoli will soon be able to get their fix six days a week - come 5 November, Rosa's Canteen will open Saturday evenings.

Rosa's Canteen, 500 Bourke St (entrance at rear), Melbourne, Vic, rosascanteen.com.au
