Warm up with a Wild Canary’s twice-baked pumpkin souffle

Despite the on again, off again temperatures of Brisbane’s winter, it’s always a good idea to stock your recipe collection with dishes that are hearty and heart-warming. Pumpkin is one of the best ingredients for adding thickness to any winter meal, and a souffle is a great creative way to incorporate it into an impressive dish. For Dine Out Brisbane, Wild Canary is using Lockyer Valley pumpkin in its heavenly souffle. Head chef Glen Barratt has given us the recipe to pass on to you, so you can sample the fare from the comfort of your own table. more

The Chefs Series: what Brisbane’s best chefs would eat for their last meal

What would you order for dinner if you knew it would be your last meal on Earth? A fat burger? Endless ice-cream? Oysters?

Beers ahoy! Hope and Anchor arrives in Paddington

Being part of the European Union is not something that the United Kingdom does well. What it does do well though, is good old-fashioned pubs and cosy bars. You're often greeted by the warmth and familiarity of yesteryear, a fireplace crackling, and some bloody good booze accompanied by simple and delicious comfort food. In light of Brexit, we can understand if you're not overly keen on visiting the UK at the moment. Instead you can just trot on over to Paddington, and find yourself a cushy nook in new bar and eatery Hope and Anchor. more

Serve some Southern hospitality with campfire green beans

Do you know why Southern American food is so popular? Because it's hot damn delicious, that’s why. Mississippi-born and UK based chef Brad McDonald walks the talk when it comes to getting down and dirty with hearty Southern fare, largely attributing the story and culture of modern American food to its Creole and Cajun roots. Deep South reads like an autobiography interjected with vibrant and rich recipes designed to deliver authenticity with a modern edge. Inside the book you’ll find all the fixings to make you feel like you’ve been transported to mama’s kitchen. From pickles and preserves to shrimp and grits (yee-haw!) there’s a rollicking list of the finest Southern recipes to try, including this Campfire Green Beans banger. more
