Savoury tarts

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.

1980s recipes

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.

Apple desserts

Whether baked into a bubbling crumble, caramelised in a puff-pastry tart or served in an all-American pie, apples are a classic filling for fruity desserts. Here are the recipes we keep coming back to.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

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.

Virgin’s flying start

New lounges allow travellers to fly with fast-track convenience.

There's no way to avoid the mad rush to the airport and delayed flights but it's now possible to avoid the scrum at check-in.

Guests at Virgin Australia's new Sydney Airport lounge can bypass the terminal entirely by arriving at a kerbside entrance at the western end of Terminal 2 and completing check-in and security screening in the lounge. The refurbished split-level lounge has doubled in size to cater for up to 500 passengers, many of whom will order coffee at three barista stations and refuel with all-day buffets. Design features include illuminated bars, curved-glass privacy screens and a ceiling pattern of leaves.

The Sydney upgrade is part of a flurry of lounge activity at Virgin Australia. It opened its first lounge at Cairns Airport in November, following the introduction of business class on flights to the city. The lounge at Melbourne Airport has also doubled in size to seat about 500 guests. The space has similar design elements to the flagship Sydney lounge and features a "premium exit" with its own security screening lane to fast-track to departure gates.

Qantas, meanwhile, has opened a new lounge in Tamworth, upgraded its Perth lounge and is working on a new Broome lounge.
