Nelly Robinson of Sydney's nel. restaurant talks us through his favourite roasting joints, tips for crisp roast potatoes and why, when it comes to pork, slow and steady always wins the race.
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.

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.
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.
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.
Cue the Champagne.
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.
The luscious silky texture of this tangy cheesecake makes it irresistible - the fact it's free of gluten and refined sugar is a bonus. We've topped ours with cherries, but berries would also work well. Start this recipe a day ahead to drain the yoghurt.
Two LA hotels, both with shady pasts, are taking a
glamorous, new turn.
Hollywood loves a second act and two new LA hotels are obliging, with dramatic makeovers propelling them from scandalous flophouses to glamorous retreats. Hotelier Jeff Klein, known for the celeb-studded Sunset Tower Hotel, has transformed a clothing-optional motel for gay men into a budget-friendly, jet-set sanctuary in West Hollywood. The new-look San Vicente Bungalows spans 29 whitewashed cottages in a courtyard garlanded with tropical plants. The cosy rooms are simply decorated and feature toiletries by Malin + Goetz.
Meanwhile, in beachside Venice, British fashion photographer Glen Luchford is behind the flowering of The Rose, a 14-room hotel in an Arts and Crafts-style building from 1908. In a previous life, the hotel was believed to have been a brothel, and it later became a hub for the surfers, artists and bohemians instinctively drawn to Venice. In the intervening years, luminaries including Charlie Chaplin, Jim Morrison and Dennis Hopper have checked into the property. Luchford worked with his colleague Doug Bruce and local designer Katerina Tana to primp the hotel's interiors, with handsome flea-market finds, Indian cotton rugs and ticking-stripe bedding.
Perfection was not the aim. "Our walls are thin, and the building is wonky. And we like it just as it is," says The Rose's website, perhaps one-upping Trip Advisor and its pernickety reviewers.
Some of the hotel's expansive suites have wraparound terraces
perched above the carnival-like atmosphere of the Venice Boardwalk.
With its eccentric performers, ragamuffin denizens and street
vendors hawking everything from bongs to thongs, the beach scene is
a potent reminder of the city's lurid past. Some things, even in
LA, can never be made over.
San Vicente Bungalows, 845 North San Vicente Boulevard, West Hollywood, LA; The Rose Hotel, 15 Rose Ave, Venice, LA
