IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE a new year is upon us (let alone that it is 2019!). February is that unique mix of relaxed yet important – it’s a time for setting fresh agendas, making plans, trying new things but also needing to feel refreshed. After a season of excess, we feel ready to put things right. Fortunately, there is much momentum in the world of food and travel right now to provide that inspiration, and we’ve distilled these ideas into an issue to help you enjoy the year ahead. This month there are a lot of interesting discussions on the table, and sustainability is at the forefront. During a trip to Bryon Bay with the team at Harvest Newrybar, we had the pleasure of foraging with the inspiring Peter Hardwick. He…

NOVEMBER’S MOST-LIKED POST 2888 likes, 82 comments When @cfassnidge called this the Gucci of all sandwiches, we knew it was going to be a big deal.

the winner is...

I am a long-time reader of delicious. and have been fortunate to have a subscription for the last few years. It now features permanently on the top of my birthday wish list. I have regularly made salads and mains, but for some reason always shied away from scratch baking, especially breads. The simplicity of Hetty McKinnon’s gozleme recipe (Extract, September 18, p 110) gave me just the encouragement I needed to try my hand at a dough. It was deliciously easy.

EASTERN INFLUENCE Roasted pork belly & dumpling noodle soup, p 18 St Hugo Eden Valley Chardonnay 2017 Miso-glazed salmon, p 97 St Hugo Barossa Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2016 Matcha ‘ice cream’ and black sesame crunch, p 114 St Hugo Eden Valley Medium Sweet Riesling 2017 “This fresh, cool-climate chardonnay has a vibrant palate that offers a lovely balance of lemon zest, white nectarine and nougat, and will pair well with the pork dish. The GSM is plush and complex with ripe fruit flavours, silky tannins and subtle oak. It will complement the saltiness of miso salmon quite nicely. The lush honeycomb richness in the sweet riesling balances perfectly with the velvety texture of the ice cream and sesame crunch.” Daniel Swincer, Chief Winemaker, St Hugo SAVOURING SUMMER Tuna tartare, betel leaves and chilli plum dressing, p 53 Maidenii ‘La Tonique’ vermouth,…
