ADVANCE AUSTRALIA FARE. It’s one of the most overused terms in a food magazine’s lexicon (I can see my subeditors waving their fists at me in frustration now!). But I’m hard-pressed to find a better way to describe our annual round-up of the most delicious things in this lucky country. Starting with our produce, and our producers, and culminating in a special section at the back of this issue to celebrate the Gold Medallists and winners in our annual delicious. Harvey Norman Produce Awards. For 16 years we’ve scoured the country to unearth the most innovative, ethical and sustainable producers and produce, artisans and regions.

BEETROOT “One of my absolute favourite ingredients. Juicy, flavoursome, colourful bulbs, salty, crunchy stems and earthy, tender leaves.

Beetroots add colour and depth to many dishes.” CITRUS (LEMONS AND ORANGES) “I love how citrus brings brightness to a hearty winter braise, or acidity and balance to a warm-weather dressing. It’s a great one to preserve and use throughout the year, making the most of its sporadic season. Try some of the fleshy varieties from your local farmers’ market.” LEEKS AND SPRING ONIONS “The humble allium family forms the base of so many great dishes, whether used raw as a garnish, or cooked slowly to add depth and sweetness.
