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.
Cirrus moves the Bentley team down to the water and into more lighthearted territory without sacrificing polish, writes Pat Nourse.
A vegetable patch without rocket lacks a great staple, according to Mat Pember. The perennial performer is a leaf for all seasons.
Massimo Bottura and more are coming to the Sydney Opera House.
Expect Mexican-Asian flavours and an all-natural wine list from two of Sydney’s edgier operators.
Director of Shakespeare theatre company Cheek by Jowl Declan Donnellan walks us through the essential sights and his favourite cafes and restaurants of his hometown.
Bellota chef Danielle Rensonnet talks us through the current menu at the restaurant and her favourite summer ingredients.
Returning for another year, Melbourne’s Tomato Festival is ripe with cooking demonstrations, talks, and produce stalls dedicated to plump produce.
Counting down from 20, here are this summer's most-loved recipes.
The restaurant and hotel scene on Australia's favourite holiday island has never been more exciting and Australian chefs, owners and restaurateurs are leading the charge, writes Samantha Coomber.
These baguette recipes are picture-perfect and picnic ready, bursting with fillings like slow-cooked beef tongue, poached egg and grilled asparagus and classic leg ham and cheese.
The Melbourne suburb lost some of its lustre in recent years, but is now bouncing back.
From an effortless tomato and ricotta herbed tart to Sri Lankan fish curries and chewy pork-and-pineapple skewers, these no-fuss recipes lend to relaxing on a humid summer's night.
David Thompson brings the heat to Melbourne with his newest incarnation of Long Chim. Michael Harden drops by for dinner.
"I've made all kinds of fancy cheesecakes in my time, but nothing really beats the classic combination of strawberries and almonds with a boost from vanilla bean," says Stone. "I could just pile macerated strawberries on top, but why not give your tastebuds a proper party by folding grilled strawberries into the cheesecake batter too? Cheesecakes are elegant and my go-to for celebrations because they taste best when whipped up a day in advance."
Australians celebrate their differences in all sorts of ways -
from unique sports to distinctive cuisine, wines and, memorably,
holiday accommodation. Take Hobart's Omnipod, aka the Avalon City Retreat, a two-bedroom
eyrie bolted atop a seven-storey heritage office tower to capture
views over Salamanca and the Derwent River. Walls of glass and a
Huon pine tub on the deck are among Omnipod's many guest
Five hours' drive from Adelaide, an 1850s sheep station showcases the serenity of the Flinders Ranges. The homestead at Arkaba Station accommodates 10 guests in bespoke surrounds of wool-bale tables and merino wool headboards. Days are spent exploring the station's 26,000-hectare backyard and neighbouring Wilpena Pound.
South Australia has a thing for heritage piles. One of the most recent historic houses to go public is Kingsford Homestead, the one-time set of cowgirl soapie McLeod's Daughters. The 1856 sandstone mansion, on the edge of the Barossa Valley, is now a small hotel of Georgian bones and glossy antiques. All-inclusive pricing covers everything from sunset cocktails to dégustation dinners in the cellar.
The best way to get up close to this country is to go camping. We love pitching up in exceptional places - especially when the tents come with ensuites, butler service and eco credentials. Take Sal Salis, nine swank safari tents that subsist on solar power and daily water rations in the dunes of Western Australia's Cape Range National Park. Fortunately such deprivations are eased by the submarine wonders of Ningaloo Reef, lamplit dinners and beach stargazing.
From the red coast to the red centre, where evocative desert camp Longitude 131 has fallen into the capable hands of James and Hayley Baillie (Southern Ocean Lodge, Capella Lodge). They've enlisted Southern Ocean's architect, Max Pritchard, to oversee a resort upgrade that will include infinity pool, a refresh of the 15 existing tents and new canopy suites with plunge pools facing Uluru.
We also love going bush at Jervis Bay on the NSW South Coast, where the solar-powered Paperbark Camp coddles guests with fanciful tents and candlelit dinners at its restaurant, The Gunyah. Guests who can drag themselves away are rewarded with stunning coastal scenery, dolphin magic and a ribbon of beach said to have the world's whitest sand. It's just one of many superlative Australian escapes.
