Nelly Robinson of Sydney's nel. restaurant talks us through his favourite roasting joints, tips for crisp roast potatoes and why, when it comes to pork, slow and steady always wins the race.
More than mere vessels, these pieces bring a cool breeze of style from the fridge to the table.
Step away from the “dessert yoghurt", writes Will Studd. The real unadulterated thing is much more rewarding.
What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.
Single-source honey putting community and sustainability next to sweetness.
More and more adventurous local winemakers are embracing Vermouth's botanicals, writes Max Allen.
Indonesia's Komodo National Park is home to staggering scenery and biodiversity. Michael Harden sets sail in a handcrafted yacht to explore its remote islands in pared-back luxury.
Cue the Champagne.
Baker extraordinaire Nadine Ingram of Sydney's Flour and Stone cooks up a sweet storm for Easter, including the much loved bakery's greatest hit.
Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.
The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.
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.
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.
Cue the Champagne.
Will your next baking project be a flaky puff pastry with pumpkin, goat's curd and thyme, or a classic bacon and Stilton tart? As autumn settles in, we're ticking these off one by one.
The luscious silky texture of this tangy cheesecake makes it irresistible - the fact it's free of gluten and refined sugar is a bonus. We've topped ours with cherries, but berries would also work well. Start this recipe a day ahead to drain the yoghurt.
Bar do Lado
Bar do Lado's carioca cahaca tonic.
This bar is little more than a terrace with tables at the side of the Marina All Suites hotel. But since opening two years ago, it has been the place to be seen among Rio's well-heeled party crowd. Queues are shorter and service is better at the hotel's more upscale Bar d'Hotel on the first floor. Ave Bartolomeu Mitre, 15, Leblon, +55 21 2172 1120, allsuites.hoteismarina.com.br
When actress Leandra Leal inherited the Rival, one of Rio's
oldest theatres, she knew it couldn't survive on income from plays
and concerts. Last February she and her husband, impresario Alê
Youssef, hosted a party in front of the theatre that drew a
star-studded crowd and was the talk of the town, prompting them to
make it a regular event. The party happens every Thursday, Friday
and Saturday night, with signature snacks and dishes by Katia
Barbosa, the chef-owner of Rio's best gastro pub, the Aconchego
Carioca. Expect the likes of feijoada fritters and shrimp bobó, a
stew thickened with manioc flour. Meanwhile, the Rival has been
revived with an eclectic program of shows, from burlesque to samba,
and entry is free. Rua Alvaro Alvim 33/37, Centro, +55 21 2240
Carioca da Gema
Set in an historic mansion, this is the leading samba bar in Lapa, the city's samba district. Its calendar of live shows draws big crowds. The scene is cabaretmeets- carnival: a band plays on a small stage, while party-goers dance and drink Caipirinhas and beers at tightly packed tables. Ave Mem de Sá, 79, Centro, +55 21 2221 0043, barcariocadagema.com.br
Bar Urca's Carne seca Aimpim.
The best seats in the house are across the road. Regulars order fritters that resemble pastéis, filled with meat or shrimp, or breaded cod balls called bolinhos, and ice-cold beers at the bar, then cross the street to sit on the stone wall facing the bay. On a sunny day, nothing tops watching the boats bobbing in the bay with a beer and some of the city's best snacks in hand. Rua Cândido Gaffrée, 205, Urca, +55 21 2295 8744, barurca.com.br
Baretto Londra's exotic passion drink.
Tucked behind the lobby of Hotel Fasano on Ipanema Beach, this loud clubby bar is an expression of hotel co-owner Rogerio Fasano's love of rock and roll and London, hence the name. Ave Vieira Souto, 80, +55 21 3202 4000, fasano.com.br
