Seven recipes that shaped 1980s fine dining
21.03.2017

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.

Where Melbourne's finest will take the World's Best Chefs
20.03.2017

Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.

Video: Sydney's Restaurant Hubert

Ahead of the 2017 Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Awards, we strolled down the sepia-lit stairwell at Restaurant Hubert to chat with the masterminds behind Sydney’s hottest new restaurant.

Restaurant Hubert is the first restaurant from Anton Forte and Jason Scott, the bar czars behind Sydney cult bars The Baxter Inn, Shady Pines Saloon and Frankie's. Their chief creative collaborator is Daniel Pepperell, the chef who made his name with playful, inventive takes on Italian cooking at Paddington's 10 William Street.

Hubert is up for two awards in our 2017 Restaurant Awards: Best New Restaurant and Best Wine List. Ahead of the awards on 17 August, we sat down for a few wines with Forte, Scott, Pepperell and the rest of their Rat Pack: co-owner Stefan Forte and sommelier Andy Tyson. From a corner table at Bar Pincer, we discussed the magic and mystery of the restaurant, what excites them most about being nominated and just how much French they really know (spoiler alert: not a lot).

Can't get to Restaurant Hubert? Try these seven recipes at home.

One thing, however, was very clear. The team at Restaurant Hubert don't just want you to enjoy great food and booze when you dine at the restaurant, they also want you to have an enormous amount of fun while doing it.
