"This is about dignity. This is about anyone walking through this door, taking what they need, and only giving back if they can."
These four desserts have one thing in common – Anzac biscuits.
Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.
We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.
Here are four spins on the classic French eclair, from Flour & Stone's pillowy choux pastry with salted caramel to a colourful take with strawberry-flecked creme fraiche filling and sprinkled pistachios on top.

Their unique settings, diversity of experiences and unbridled extravagance set the standard for elite accommodation in this country.
Take Southern Ocean
Lodge, the 21-suite ridgetop retreat that embraces Kangaroo
Island's great outdoors from the exquisite comfort of its great
indoors. Or Saffire, which has put Tasmania
on the global indulgence map with its combination of cinematic
Freycinet Peninsula views, top-flight cuisine and imaginative
One&Only set a new pace in the élite-escapes race when it relaunched Hayman Island resort in July 2014. After an $80 million renovation, Hayman's 160 rooms, suites and penthouses look more appealing than ever. The super-luxury operator has also assumed management of the Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa, so expect similar excellence at this wilderness station at the base of the World Heritage Blue Mountains.
Set in red desert sands within sight of Uluru, Longitude 131° looks set to reclaim its crown as the jewel of the outback with new owners Baillie Lodges refurbishing its 15 stylish tents, adding new canopy suites (with fireplaces!) and a dune-top infinity pool.
Cicada Lodge in the Northern Territory also offers front-row seats on the outback - in this case on ancient Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge). The lodge is Indigenous-owned so local Jawoyn people guide the experience, from sunset dinner cruises to desert encounters with 40,000-year-old rock art.
Given our seemingly infinite coastline, it's not surprising many
of Australia's best addresses can be found beside the beach. Or, in

private beaches on the Great Barrier Reef. Fresh from its
post-cyclone renewal, Lizard has all-new facilities and
accommodaton and The Villa, a lavish, two-bedroom lookout over the
Qualia still commands a peerless presence on its Hamilton Island paradise. Guests at its 60 sundeck-or-pool pavilions are entertained with a program of culinary, fashion and arts events.
This year also marks the return, after a sharp restoration, of
Pretty Beach House on the New South
Wales Central Coast (pictured above). Managed by the team behind
Bells at Killcare, guests staying in its four striking pavilions
dine on Stefano Manfredi's cuisine while drinking in views of the
Beach holidays never looked so good.
