1980s recipes

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.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

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.

Roti canai

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.

Roasted cauliflower salad with yoghurt dressing and almonds

The winners of the 2016 Hotel Awards were announced at a dinner last night at Sydney's Primus Hotel.

It was all about the glitz and glam at Sydney's chic Primus Hotel last night as we presented our third annual Hotel Awards. Hosted by TV personality and journalist Chris Bath, the awards coincide with the release of the 2016 Gourmet Traveller Australian Hotel Guide, published with the June edition of the magazine, on sale today.

In attendance was the cream of the Australian travel industry, including our dedicated reviewers, travel editors, influencers and hoteliers from the country's top 50 hotels, and our friends and proud sponsors Nespresso.

Guests mingled over canapés and Nespresso-spiked Negronis before settling in for a sit-down dinner by the hotel's executive chef Ryan Hong. Dishes included wagyu sirloin with soy and porcini purée, and miso-glazed toothfish with a bright prawn and papaya salad.

"It's so gratifying to see, three years after launching our guide, that Australia's hotel industry is experiencing such a resurgence," says GT editor in chief Anthea Loucas Bosha. "No fewer than 11 of our top 50 hotels are new entries for 2016."

Como The Treasury in Perth, a grand $110 million heritage restoration, took out the awards for Hotel of the Year and New Hotel of the Year. Sydney's The Old Clare won the award for Boutique Hotel of the Year, while other major winners included QT Hotels & Resorts (Best Minibars, Best Club Sandwich at QT Sydney); Hotel Palisade in Sydney (Best Bar); and Halcyon House in Cabarita Beach, which was named Regional Hotel of the Year.
