More than mere vessels, these pieces bring a cool breeze of style from the fridge to the table.
Step away from the “dessert yoghurt", writes Will Studd. The real unadulterated thing is much more rewarding.
What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.
Single-source honey putting community and sustainability next to sweetness.
More and more adventurous local winemakers are embracing Vermouth's botanicals, writes Max Allen.
Indonesia's Komodo National Park is home to staggering scenery and biodiversity. Michael Harden sets sail in a handcrafted yacht to explore its remote islands in pared-back luxury.
Cue the Champagne.
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.
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.
Will your next baking project be a flaky puff pastry with pumpkin, goat's curd and thyme, or a classic bacon and Stilton tart? As autumn settles in, we're ticking these off one by one.
Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.
The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.
Cue the Champagne.
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.
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.
Our picks of Australia's best budget hotels, from Sydney to Melbourne and Brisbane to Adelaide.
If we had an award for best hotel rebrand, it would likely go to
the new Adelaide Ibis, a fresh and funky reimagining of
the no-frills brand that makes staying in a three-star hotel
suddenly seem appealing. The $70 million, 311-room property has
murals by street artist Ghostpatrol and Samsung Smart TVs for
streaming music, movies and games. What it lacks in minibars and
room service it more than makes up for with a convenient CBD
address and competitive rates.
In Sydney's top-dollar accommodation market, the Central Station Hotel stands out for its renovated rooms and advance-purchase rates of less than $100 a night. No two rooms are the same, so guests can choose a heritage-accented space to suit their budget - from "Shoeboxes" of 10 square metres to adjoining rooms for families. The CBD-edge location, handy to Oxford Street, Chinatown and Surry Hills, saves on transport costs.
Down on the New South Wales-Victoria border, the Atura Albury is a sharp restyling of the old Rydges Hotel. Brace yourself for the bold foyer and inflatable pool flamingos at this self-conscious "lifestyle" hotel, but rest assured the 140 rooms have substance as well as style - hence the espresso machines, Malin+Goetz toiletries and sofa beds for extra guests.
In newly fashionable Hobart, we like the distinctly unfashionable Fountainside Hotel for its CBD vantage (and views from higher floors) but most of all for its minibars. The comfortable rooms won't win any design awards but the minibars deserve a medal for stocking drinks at shop prices. The free WiFi, parking and cable TV are added bonuses.
The art-accented Larwill Studio in leafy Parkville, Victoria, handy to the Royal Children's Hospital and Melbourne Zoo, is a budget offering by Art Series Hotels (The Cullen, The Olsen). Inspired and decorated by contemporary artist David Larwill, the hotel has 96 "workspaces" with twin and king beds, coffee machines and soothing parkland views. Smart cars and bikes for hire encourage urban explorers.
Brisbane's new Tryp Fortitude Valley Hotel is street-art smart and affordable and offers beaut laneway breakfasts at onsite restaurant Chur.
In notoriously pricey Perth, the three-star Sullivans Hotel has a peaceful Kings Park location, helpful staff and impressive breakfasts. Deluxe rooms have balconies, and there's free WiFi, bicycles and a city shuttle bus. With rates this reasonable (from $163), just don't expect designer digs.
