Coffee culture: A history

Australia’s love affair with coffee is stronger than ever; it’s become a way of life. But exactly how did a beverage manage to shape our country’s culture?

Tarta de Santiago

"Gordita makes a splendid version of the Galician almond cake Tarta de Santiago, with its dramatic design. Would you please publish the recipe?" Michael MacDermott, Taringa, Qld REQUEST A RECIPE To request a recipe, email fareexchange@bauer-media.com.au or send us a message via Facebook. Please include the restaurant's name and address, as well as your name and address. Please note that because of the volume of requests we receive, we can only publish a selection in the magazine.

Curry recipes

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.

The Joseph Boroski Bar and Hospitality School, Bangkok

With Bangkok's newest speakeasy it's a matter of who you know.

New York's best-known speakeasy, PDT, is approached through a phone box in an East Village hotdog shop. In Singapore, a password is needed for admission to The Library bar, set behind a bookcase. In Bangkok, patrons enter Maggie Choo's through a Chinese restaurant. Though these so-called underground bars are hard to find, their locations are an open secret.

This isn't the case yet for Bangkok's newest speakeasy. Although J Boroski Mixology opened last June to rave reviews, the bar and hospitality school is hidden in a dingy lane in Bangkok's hippest neighbourhood, Thonglor. Unless you have someone in the know, you'll need to sign up for one of Joseph Boroski's cocktail classes to get the address.

A former New Yorker, Boroski is Thailand's star mixologist. He's known for his work in Bangkok behind the bars of Maggie Choo's, Clouds and The Iron Fairies, as a bar trainer and for guest appearances abroad, including at W Paris-Opéra and the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong.

There's no menu and the drinks have no names at Boroski's bar. After enquiring about your tastes, preferences and mood, he uses fresh local ingredients, exotic infusions and premium spirits that are otherwise hard to find in Bangkok to concoct a bespoke cocktail, just for you. If you like what you're drinking, he'll make a note for next time. The diminutive and dimly lit bar has a dramatic interior by the Australian designer, blacksmith and children's book author Ashley Sutton, including a feature wall pinned with scarab beetles to reflect Boroski's passion for entomology.

Boroski runs fun one-off classes for amateurs to intensive courses for professionals (prices on application).
