We’re spoilt for variety – and value – in Australia when it comes to good riesling. Max Allen picks the top 20 from a fine crop.
As the '90s dawned, darling chefs were pushing the boundaries of cooking in this country. A young Christine Manfield, just starting out at this heady time, soon became part of the generation that redefined modern Australian cuisine. She shares some of her timeless signatures from the era.
To travel to Normandy along the Seine is to take it by stealth, writes Larissa Dubecki, who ventured forth in search of chateaux and Calvados.
Cirrus moves the Bentley team down to the water and into more lighthearted territory without sacrificing polish, writes Pat Nourse.
A vegetable patch without rocket lacks a great staple, according to Mat Pember. The perennial performer is a leaf for all seasons.
Counting down from 20, here are this summer's most-loved recipes.
"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."
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.
Massimo Bottura and more are coming to the Sydney Opera House.
A hotdog is all about the condiments. Here, choose between a smoky red capsicum relish or the bright flavours of chimichurri, or go for a bit of both.
These baguette recipes are picture-perfect and picnic ready, bursting with fillings like slow-cooked beef tongue, poached egg and grilled asparagus and classic leg ham and cheese.
From an effortless tomato and ricotta herbed tart to Sri Lankan fish curries and chewy pork-and-pineapple skewers, these no-fuss recipes lend to relaxing on a humid summer's night.
"I've made all kinds of fancy cheesecakes in my time, but nothing really beats the classic combination of strawberries and almonds with a boost from vanilla bean," says Stone. "I could just pile macerated strawberries on top, but why not give your tastebuds a proper party by folding grilled strawberries into the cheesecake batter too? Cheesecakes are elegant and my go-to for celebrations because they taste best when whipped up a day in advance."
Since designer Collette Dinnigan first caught the eye of fashion
followers 25 years ago with her range of dry clean-only lingerie
and intricate, beaded gowns, she has built a solid reputation for
her feminine, romantic aesthetic. In her latest project, Dinnigan
has turned her hand to interiors, reimagining two penthouse suites
at Bannisters by the Sea, the boutique hotel at Mollymook on the
southern New South Wales coast, three hours' drive from
"We have a farm down in Milton, which is just a five-minute drive to Bannisters," says Dinnigan. "It's a great area, and I'd always said I would love to do a hotel."
The partnership involved much more than Dinnigan adding a few cushions. The penthouses (suites 29 and 30) have been completely rebuilt, with Dinnigan advising on all aspects of the renovation. "The whole feeling was about opening the space up and, despite being indoors, creating the feeling of living outside," says Dinnigan.
The breezy new suites are elegant without being overworked. Both have wooden floors and feature hand-printed furnishings in blue, white and green, and curios that Dinnigan picked up on her travels in the south of France, found locally or had custom-made. "Nothing is a reproduction," she says.
Artworks from some of Dinnigan's favourite Australian artists also feature, including images from '70s surf photographer John Witzig and Sydney artist Murray Hilton, among others. "We had a Hilton at our Palm Beach home," she says. "It's just so Australian to me."
Meanwhile, Bannisters' new sister property, Bannisters Pavilion, is set to open on 1 December just 900 metres away. The pavilion has 33 guest rooms and another two penthouse suites, and a rooftop pool overlooking Mollymook Beach.
Bannisters by the Sea, 191 Mitchell Pde, Mollymook, NSW, (02) 4455 3044; penthouses from $625 per night including breakfast. Bannisters Pavilion, 87 Tallwood Ave, Mollymook, NSW, (02) 4455 3044; rooms from $255 per night, penthouses from $398.
