Mango recipes

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Garlic recipes

This pungent yet essential little bulb sets the foundation for countless dishes across the globe. Slowly roast it alongside spatchcock or whole snapper, or grind it down to thick paste for a rich alioli. When it comes to garlic, the possibilities truly are endless.

Taming the Wilderness

Heading to Canada’s far-flung places means a whole lot of adventure with life’s luxuries on the side.

Shark Bay Wild Scampi Caviar

When the mercury is rising, step away from the oven. These recipes are either raw, chilled or frozen and will cool you down in a snap.

QT Falls Creek

The quirky chic characterising hotel group QT hits new heights on the Victorian slopes.

How about a side of fun with that morning ski? At QT Falls Creek, the fourth addition to the hotel group's expanding family, that's exactly what's on the menu.

The property, which was rebranded by the group in May last year, comprises 63 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses, which banish the dreary alpine-hut stereotype. Here, it's all sleek designer furnishings, private balconies with hot tubs and signature QT quirks with the likes of decks of Uno and little hot-water-bottle pocket-warmers in the minibar kit.

Powder fiends couldn't be better located. The ski resort's main chairlift is at the doorstep and there's a snow-gear rental shop next door.

Hungry? The hotel's two dining areas are more than just refuelling stops. Bazaar is an "interactive marketplace" offering made-to-order omelettes, Le Chasseur casseroles of porridge and spicy baked beans for breakfast to roast lamb with mash, sliced-to-order charcuterie and a steamed dumpling station at dinner. Stingray is the hotel's all-day lounge, with a California-meets-Aspen vibe. It serves Mexican-style eats from the kitchen and hot buttered rum and warm milk punch from the bar. Those after a more hands-on approach can take refuge in the sauna or at the spa, where winter-inspired treatments such as warming thermal massages and organic cocoa butter and coconut cream wraps soothe weary muscles.

QT Falls Creek hits its straps from June to September, but the hotel is open year-round with cycling, hiking and horse riding on offer (though Bazaar and the day spa are generally closed outside the snow season). A one-bedroom apartment in winter costs from $698 per night, including breakfast, with a minimum two-night stay.

17 Bogong High Plains Rd, Falls Creek, Vic, (03) 5732 8016.
