Most popular recipes summer 2017

Counting down from 20, here are this summer's most-loved recipes.

Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"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."

Bali's new wave of restaurants, hotels and bars

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.

Chorizo hotdogs with chimichurri and smoky red relish

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.

Australia's best rieslings

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.

Curtis Stone's strawberry and almond cheesecake

"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."

Baguette recipes

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.

Local knowledge: Fez, Morocco

Fez, Morocco

Fez, Morocco

Artist Rebecca Raft A.K.A Rafti shows us the secrets of Fez, Morocco.

Rebecca Raft is the co-founder of jewellery studio Bouvier. She lives and works in Fez, Ubud and Mullumbimby.

Fez is special because...

arriving late at night and emerging in the morning feels like stepping through a looking glass or into a time machine. The call to prayer sets your mind clock, and the smell of spices, donkeys and desert is so evocative.

My daily ritual involves...

yoga at home, then Café Clock for an espresso and Berber eggs, baked in a spicy tomato sauce - highly addictive.

Eating with friends means...

heading to my friend Stephen di Renza's Restaurant Numéro 7. It's a chef-in-residence space where visiting chefs use ingredients only from local producers.

Comfort food is...

my friend's mum's tagine of lamb and wild baby artichoke-heart. Or a giant doughnut with an egg cracked into the hole from a crazy street vendor.

For a weird and wonderful curio...

I head to Omah's behind a locked door deep in the medina, an Aladdin's cave full of wondrous stuff. Or the junk souk - Fez has a souk for everything. There's a henna souk where I get my own personal amber perfume made by Rashid.

I spend hours...

fossicking with my designer friend Kate Kvalvik, climbing through the back of hole-in-the-wall shops, much to the bemusement of the owners.

For coffee...

I order "kawa khala" (espresso) and a glass of orange juice from the lovely Mustapha at Café La Place on the edge of Place Seffarine. It's the noisiest place in the city, where metal-workers hammer copper into giant cooking pots. The sound is magical to me.

For after-work drinks...

with friends I buy wood-fired bread, olives, and deep-fried dumplings, and I make tzatziki, and invite everyone up to my terrace to watch the sun setting over the medina with the Atlas Mountains in the distance.

I take visitors to...

lunch of brochettes and kefta tagine cooked over hot coals at Sidi Barada's, then we head to Dar Seffarine, restored brilliantly as a guesthouse by my extended family here, Kate Kvalvik and Alaa Said.

For time out I head to...

a restaurant called The Ruined Garden for the sweet fragrance of herbs and flowers and Robert's delicious farmhouse food.
