Most popular recipes summer 2017

Counting down from 20, here are this summer's most-loved recipes.

Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

Chorizo hotdogs with chimichurri and smoky red relish

A hotdog is all about the condiments. Here, choose between a smoky red capsicum relish or the bright flavours of chimichurri, or go for a bit of both.

Bali's new wave of restaurants, hotels and bars

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.

Australia's best rieslings

We’re spoilt for variety – and value – in Australia when it comes to good riesling. Max Allen picks the top 20 from a fine crop.

Curtis Stone's strawberry and almond cheesecake

"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."

Baguette recipes

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.

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.
