Flour and Stone Recipes

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.

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.

Perth hotel news

Ritz-Carlton, Perth

Ritz-Carlton, Perth

From boutique to big, a raft of new luxe hotels is set to open in Perth.

Travellers to Perth rejoice: the city's oft-discussed bed shortage will be eased as more than 1000 new hotel rooms open in the next five years.

The first newcomer will be Alex Hotel, a 74-room boutique property due to open early next year on William Street, Northbridge. The first hotel to be built in the suburb in more than a decade, this six-storey property is aiming to appeal to urban explorers looking for boutique stays. There will be a rooftop terrace with enviable city views, hip in-house food and drink options and communal areas designed to encourage guest interaction.

Room service, however, won't be on the menu. "You're in Northbridge. Other than our own restaurant, there's plenty of places to go out," says Miles Hull, one of the partners behind the venture. "We want to attract guests who are interested in the neighbourhood they're staying in."

Currently under construction is a riverside precinct called Elizabeth Quay. It's another neighbourhood to watch, not least because Ritz-Carlton has chosen the site for a hotel scheduled to open in 2018, which will mark the luxury group's return to the Australian market after 17 years.

Also on the Swan River will be DoubleTree by Hilton Perth Waterfront, a 241-room property due to open in 2016. The Westin Perth, meanwhile, will open in 2017 at the former FESA House site on Hay Street. And at the casino, the $645 million, 500-room Crown Towers development remains on track for a 2017 opening.
