Chef's around Australia are taking hams to the next level this Christmas.
Welcome to the largest private collection of Burgundy and Bordeaux in the southern hemisphere. You’re now allowed to step inside.
For our 50th anniversary issue in 2016, we scoured Australia asking two questions: What dishes are making waves right now? What flavours will take us into the next half-century? Sydney provided 16 answers.
To mark our 50th anniversary, we collaborated with Patron Tequila and Neil Perry to create a Mexican-themed birthday feast.
The chairman and CEO of AccorHotels Asia Pacific, Michael Issenberg, tells us his travel habits - from his pre-flight to the best ways to pass the time in the sky.

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.
When the mercury is rising, step away from the oven. These recipes are either raw, chilled or frozen and will cool you down in a snap.

"Great cake, also known in Barbados as black cake or rum cake, is a variation of British Christmas cake that's smashed with rum and falernum syrup," says Momofuku Seiobo chef Paul Carmichael. "This festive cake varies from household to household but they all have two things in common: tons of dried fruit and rum. It's a cake that should be started at least a month out so the fruit can marinate in the booze. Start this recipe up to five weeks ahead to macerate the fruit and baste the cake."
Whether it's a hand-thrown pasta bowl, a bottle of vodka made from sheep's whey or a completely stylish denim apron, our pop-up Christmas Boutique in collaboration with gift shop Sorry Thanks I Love You has got you covered in the $100 and under budget this Christmas.
Whether in a fresh salad or seasonal seafood dish, feta's creamy tang can be used to add interest to a variety of summer dishes.
We talk to Ann Sherry, executive chair of Carnival Australia, about her flying routine and the must dos and donts of plane travel.
Where do you travel for work?
"With more of Australia embracing cruise tourism, I've been spending more time in regional areas. Domestically, I fly frequently to Melbourne and Brisbane, and internationally to Miami and Europe."
How often are you away?
"About 60 to 70 domestic trips a year and about 10 international trips a year."
Suitcase of choice?
"Samsonite. I like my bags strong, light and on wheels and always bright red so I can identify them easily on the carousel. I've never owned a black suitcase."
"I always load up my iPad with books before I fly. On longer flights, I have a facial at the airport before I board."
Essential cabin items?
"My iPad, earplugs, moisturising creams and pressure socks."
"When I'm travelling long haul I change into airline pyjamas and get comfortable straight away. I do my reading and paperwork for meetings, then I read a book or watch something in-flight. I eat small and I drink only still water."
Roll or fold?
"I've learnt to roll since I've been in this job and now I roll everything except my suits, which I pack in plastic and paper so they don't crush."
Aisle or window?
"Domestically, I prefer the aisle for ease of access, but on long-haul flights I always choose the window seat - it's usually quieter."
Who do you fly?
"Domestically, I fly both Qantas and Virgin, based on timetables and convenience. Internationally, it depends on my destination but I travel a lot with Qantas/Emirates to Europe and Qantas/American Airlines to the US."
Favourite airline lounge?
"Virgin Australia's club is fabulous - the food is by Luke
Mangan, whose food also features on our P&O ships. Qantas
International First Lounge is also a favourite - I particularly
enjoy the luxury of having a facial in the lounge before my
Favourite hotels for business?
"In Melbourne, I like the Sofitel on Collins. In New York, I stay at the Four Seasons - nothing is too much trouble for them, even when you have to make conference calls in the middle of the night. In London, I often stay at the Haymarket Hotel, which has a fabulous indoor swimming pool that's open 24 hours. When I can't sleep during the night I can relax by doing a few laps."
How do hotels get it wrong for business travellers?
"Some hotels have very little space for bags. I often find there aren't enough power points in the room and it's surprising how many hotels don't offer international adaptors. A lot of bathrooms have poor lighting. And don't get me started on ineffective hairdryers."
