Explore European-inspired art at Museum of Brisbane’s new exhibition Bauhaus Now

As many art lovers would know, The Bauhaus is arguably the most influential art and design school in history, later becoming an avant-garde movement that transformed modern art across the world. Through post-war migration in the 1930s, this movement even made its way to our little river city, and significantly influenced everything from modernist art to design and architecture. If you want to find out the secrets behind this story and check out some eye-catching European-inspired artworks while you're at it, make tracks to Museum of Brisbane for the new exhibition Bauhaus Now, open now until April 18, 2021. more

Get a little taste of summer in Sicily with Julia Busuttil Nishimura’s coffee granita with whipped cream and brioche

Whether it's for breakfast or a snack, granita and brioche is the epitome of a summer treat. As the granita melts, the cream and coffee merge to make a kind of slush, which is every bit as delicious as it sounds. This must-try recipe from Julia Busuttil Nishimura is featured within the pages of her new book A Year of Simple Family Food and is an ode to summer holidays in Sicily, where there are no rules and granita with whipped cream and brioche becomes a perfectly acceptable breakfast. Tip, you may need to start the brioche the day before you want to eat it so you can let the dough prove overnight in the fridge.  more

Step up your picnic spread with a little help from The Somewhere Co.

If the swooping birds haven’t given it away, it’s officially spring, which means one thing – picnics! Rolling out a rug and whiling away the afternoon with a plethora of cheese and a cheeky pet-nat is undoubtedly one of our favourite past times. But somewhere along the line, someone made the executive decision that all picnic rugs had to be plaid. Well, to that The Somewhere Co. say nay. The brand is here to save you from the status quo with a stunning range of pretty picnic rugs, cooler bags and miscellaneous goodies. more

Ginger’s Kitchen is the cookie subscription service set to bring fresh-baked perfection to your door

No matter what genre of treats your particular sweet tooth craves, it is a universally acknowledged truth that freshly baked cookies are amongst the God tier. An oozing chocolate chip (or perfectly plump raisin if you swing that way), chewy middle and slightly crisp outside are all of the elements required for total mouth bliss. If you’re a total sucker for the dopamine hit that can only come from a perfectly crafted disc of doughy goodness, we’re going to let you in on a secret – there’s a Brisbane-based cookie subscription that will soon be sending monthly parcels of baked goods direct to your destination. more
