NEW LIFE, NEW BEGINNINGS: so goes the story behind many of the celebrations we have throughout April and Easter. Thus it is a good time to welcome new contributors to the delicious. line-up this month. Ellie and Sam Studd are the children of renowned Australian cheese specialist Will Studd. Will is passing on the baton to a new generation, and has shared his life’s passion and knowledge with Ellie and Sam. As they take on the family business, each month they will share their stories with us – on the memories they have on sourcing cheese with their father, the origins and features of note, and most importantly, how to eat it, cook it or drink with it.

I like brunch, and fizzy things if I’m not drinking Bloody Marys or mimosa cocktails. So for me we’re going deep on Champagne, Australian sparkling wine and, for the sweeter things, racy, refreshing and high-quality moscato.” Mike Bennie, Drinks Writer VERY VEGIE Spiced pickled eggplant with green beans and feta, p 24 Whole salt-baked pumpkin with raclette cheese sauce, p 56 White chocolate orange cake with orange syrup, p 42 “A menu befitting the colourful…

Quality is always at the forefront. “I could never compete with the bigger operators in volume, but I’ll always aim to produce better quality. Over the years, I’ve asked questions, I’ve learned, I’ve made mistakes, but eventually cottoned on to the technique. “It takes about 12 or 13 seconds from when the fish first feels the contact with that hook to when it is in the ice slurry.
