Goodgod returns to Vivid with another pop-up and an ambitious goal: to generate just one bag of rubbish in the process.
A far cry from Tuscany’s familiar gently rolling hills, Monte Argentario’s appealing mix of mountain, ocean, island and lagoon makes it one of Italy’s hidden treasures, writes Emiko Davies.
Kick off winter with a week of cheese tasting.
Farro can be used in almost any dish, from a robust salad to accompany hearty beer-glazed beef short ribs to a new take on risotto with mushrooms, leek and parmesan. Here are 14 ways with this versatile grain.
There's nothing new about Nordic interiors - blond timbers, concrete surfaces, warm, mid-century charm without the twee - and thank heavens for that. It's a style that augments the beauty of everything around it, in this case, gorgeous Hobart harbour, which makes up one whole wall. What is new here, however, is the food - by veterans of Garagistes, which once dazzled diners down the road, Vue de Monde in Melbourne and Gordon Ramsay worldwide. There's a strong Asian bent, but with Tasmanian ingredients. In fact, the kitchen's love of the local verges on obsessive - coconut milk in an aromatic fish curry is replaced with Tasmanian-grown fig leaf simmered in cream to mimic the flavour. Other standouts include a gutsy red-braised lamb with gai lan and chewy cassia spaetzle, pigs' ears zingy with Sichuan pepper and a fresh, springy berry dessert. While the food is sourced locally, the generous wine list spans the planet.
No, it’s not a pop-up. The team behind Sydney’s Moon Park is back with an all-day east-Asian eatery.
Here we've scorched apricots on the grill and served them with torn jamon, shaved Manchego and peppery rocket leaves. Think of it as a twist on the good old melon-prosciutto routine. The mixture would also be great served on charred sourdough.
Chris Lucas has flown in talent from all over the world, including Eleven Madison Park, for his bold new venture. Here’s what to expect from Kisume.
Prepare to enter a picture of the countryside framed by note-perfect Australiana but painted in bold, elegant and unsentimental strokes. Over 10 or more courses, Dan Hunter celebrates his region with dishes that are formally daring (Crunchy prawn heads! Creamy oyster soft-serve! Sea urchin and chicory bread pudding!), yet rich in flavour and substance. The menu could benefit from an edit, but the plates are tightly composed - and what could you cut? Certainly not the limpid broth bathing fronds of abalone and calamari, nor the clever arrangement of lobster played off against charred waxy fingerlings under a swatch of milk skin. The adventure is significantly the richer for the cool gloss of the dining room, some of the most engaging service in the nation and wine pairings that roam with an easy-going confidence. Maturing and relaxing without surrendering a drop of its ambition, Brae is more compelling than ever.
Like its oft-disputed name, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia defies simple definition but its rich diversity extends from the dinner table to the welcoming locals, writes Richard Cooke.
We ask Emmerentia Wilding, general manager for Estée Lauder, Aerin and Tom Ford Beauty in Australia, about her travel habits.
Where do you travel regularly for work?
"Domestically I travel to Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. Internationally I go to New York, London, Hong Kong and Singapore."
How often are you away?
"Once or twice a month interstate, internationally four or five times a year."
Suitcase of choice?
"I love my set of Samsonite luggage. It has survived almost nine years of regular airport handling, which is testament to its quality."
"A powerful cardio work-out with sports scientist Jonathan Cawte, of Sydney's Compass, and planning my "time-zone shift strategy", which basically involves planning when to work, sleep, eat and relax throughout a journey in order to arrive in sync with the local time zone. Choice of footwear is vital - it must get three ticks for comfort, ease of slipping on and off and not needing to be taken off during security screening."
Essential cabin item?
"I organise my cabin bag so I have easy access to my laptop, documents and a few essentials, to minimise disturbing other sleeping passengers. I always have my Bose noise-cancelling headphones, and my iPad preloaded with reading options. And I love the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair products, the best gift you can give your skin during air travel."
"My onboard routine always includes meditation and searching for the little treat my husband has secretly tucked into my cabin bag."
Roll or fold?
"Both, depending on the garments. Stuffing small non-crease items into larger items to keep them in shape and save space is another useful technique."
Who do you fly with when you're working?
"The three airlines I fly most often are Qantas, British Airways and Delta. Qantas is hands down my preferred airline - its service truly goes above and beyond."
Aisle or window?
"Window, to avoid being disturbed."
Favourite airline lounge?
"British Airways' First Class Lounge at Heathrow Terminal 5."
Favourite hotels for business?
"Minimum requirements are complimentary WiFi, sufficient power points and considered work-sleepbath lighting. My vote also goes to hotels that offer 24-hour access to a gym and really good coffee. Great hotels I've found recently are Loews Regency New York, the Excelsior Hotel Gallia, Milan, which offers a complimentary chauffeur service to the city, and the Grand Hyatt Melbourne - all distinguished by exemplary service."
