WHAT MAKES A GREAT PARTY? As a party-thrower, party-goer and party-lover of epic proportions, it starts with an intriguing, entertaining and unexpected guest list (and please don’t tell me you’re having an early night), before segueing to Champagne and my everything-old-is-new favourite, the punch bowl. It also means mastering the art of a great grazing platter (in the age of Instagram, known as an ‘uber’ platter), which you’ll find on page 78 courtesy of our very own Phoebe Wood and Kirsten Jenkins. There’s more to the platter than meets the eye these days, and while there are plenty of hacks and cheats for the time-poor, there is also a return to building the elements from scratch with clever use-it-up techniques, be it chutneys, cheeses, breads, spiced nuts or terrines. As for…

Thus our wines are perfect with seafood. Concentrated aromatics balance the intense flavours in the dishes, while acid and sometimes saline elements in the food highlight the wines’ fruitiness.” Santiago Fernandez, Head Chef, Voyager Estate Margaret River FAST AND FIERY Sweet corn soup, p 98 Ngeringa Uncultured Pet Nat 2017 (Adelaide Hills, SA, $29) Turmeric chicken thighs, p 108 Lucy M Pinot Blanc 2018 (Adelaide Hills, SA, $33) Spiced…

Don’t believe us? Just take a look at this recipe for potato skins, avocado and smoked salmon pearls from our September issue. Enough said. INSPIRED COOKING: I won a copy of the August 2018 edition of delicious. and, boy, were my eyes opened! What wonderful recipes, and most fairly easy to follow. I am over 70 and live alone so don’t usually do ‘fancy’ cooking, but I am about to try some of Shannon Bennett’s Mambo Italiano (p 84). Thank you for encouraging me to be more adventurous with my cooking. Elizabeth Hoffmann TEEN PICK: After finally finding a…

the winner is...

I arrived in Melbourne on June 1st – first day of winter. So there I was, freezing and missing a very warm England. I had no cookbooks, no pots, no pans, no mixer, no glasses for my gin, and no idea what I was going to cook. I also gave up a 10-year subscription to a very popular UK-based food magazine. What was I going to cook? More importantly, what was I going to eat? My recipe collection now consists of three issues of delicious. magazine, and it’s safe to say I have smashed it. Thank you for saving this foodie from eating takeaway every night. What a fantastic publication – my subscription order is on its way. Safe to say this is my new bible. Paul Dunn ED’S NOTE: Congratulations,…

Set on Soldiers Point peninsula within the peaceful seclusion of a 98,000-hectare marine park, there can be few finer spots to enjoy Rick’s classic cooking. On the day, you’ll enjoy a wonderful four-course menu by Rick and head chef Mitchell Turner, designed to showcase the region’s best seafood, with matching Brokenwood Wines. “We can’t wait to see you enjoying platters of local oysters and prawns on the deck,” say Rick and Sarah.
