Fast autumn dinners

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

Flour and Stone Recipes

Baker extraordinaire Nadine Ingram of Sydney's Flour and Stone cooks up a sweet storm for Easter, including the much loved bakery's greatest hit.

Roasted cauliflower salad with yoghurt dressing and almonds

The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

All Star Yum Cha

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

Lemon tart

It's really important to seal the pastry well to prevent any seepage during cooking, and to trim the pastry soon after cooking. Let the tart cool in the tin before removing it, or it will crack.

Spelt cashew and broccoli bowl with yoghurt dressing

This nicely textured salad transports well, making it ideal for picnics or to take to barbecues. The broccoli can be kept raw and shaved on a mandolin, too.

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.

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.

Emirates launches First Class lounge access on an economy budget

Moët & Chandon Champagne lounge

Moët & Chandon Champagne lounge

Stopovers in Dubai just got better for Emirates passengers. For the first time, the airline is opening the doors of its first-class and business lounges to economy passengers in exchange for a relatively small fee.

Upgrade from the transit lounge to pure luxury and choose from seven Emirates lounges at Dubai International Airport, where you can while away the time among Italian-made furniture and bespoke artwork. The business-class lounge, accessible in four-hour blocks for economy passengers for $130, boasts a Moët & Chandon Champagne lounge, decent flat whites made by an on-site barista and a health hub for those wanting lighter fare. Spend a little more, $262, for all that the first-class lounge offers, including à la carte dining, a cigar lounge and shoe-shine service.

Buisness class lounge.

About 2.5 million travellers use Emirates' premium lounges at Dubai International Airport annually, so when the airline closed one of its six lounges for renovation, the plans were super-sized. Opened late last year, Emirates' business-class lounge at Concourse B accommodates 1,500 passengers in a whopping 3,000 square metres of renovated space, a 40 per cent increase in seating capacity. The children's play area has been doubled in size, the spa renovated, and the number of showers and "quiet" areas increased. 

The catch? You'll need to either be a card carrier of Emirates' Skywards loyalty program, or be travelling alongside a member. There are plans to expand the service to other airports in the future but for now, lounge access is only available in Dubai. Worth a detour in our opinion.
