Australian dining and food in the media

Hi!

Is there any good websites that are specific to Australia and food oriented? I'm looking for things that are like epicurious.com where there are recipes and reviews by readers (though reviews aren't crucial) or sites like foodtv.com/foodtv.ca for recipe searches. Other food sites that are really australian oriented would also be great to know about!

Cheers.

This is currently my fave Australian food site. The TV program is excellent. You'll see a lot more than Australian food, it's really more about finding great food and food producers around Australia no matter ethnicity.

Food Lover's Guide to Australia

And this is my fave New Zealand website which is from Cuisine magazine; a terrific mag.

Don't know anything about this guy, but he looks to be heavily into Australiana. Don't just look at the recipes though, there's other interesting stuff on the site.

Benjamin Christie site

Dining Downunder site

a show involving Ben Christie and other chefs trundling round Australia cooking up this and that.

Foodlovers site This NZ site is run by Helen Jackson. Quite an extensive site with forum, recipe competitions etc.

Could somebody on the spot point us expats and interested furriners to other interesting sites please?

helen, for the locals, we're very very city centric. for instance, here in melbourne, The Age newspaper's epicure section on Tuesdays is highly regarded, which is the general concensus, not necessarily the view of this author.

Try de Groots Best Restaurants of Australia is a great resource for Australian restaurants, has a great list of Sydney Restaurants.

As well as this they have a great selection restaurant gift certificates available.

The Mietta's site still has good brief listings for restaurants, bakeries, and more.

For traveling foodies looking for good eats, my suggestion is to consider ordering the SMH or Age Good Food Guide for Sydney or Melbourne respectively, or pick one up at a bookshop once you're in town. Best bet is to order from Dymocks.

THEY'RE not trying quite so hard in Sydney's most admired kitchens these days. Having elevated their city into the ranks of the world's great eating towns, right up there with New York and Paris and London, chefs here have begun to focus on making the most of the magnificent raw materials at their disposal rather than emphasizing the razzle-dazzle of old.

There is a thread in the Food News & Media forum concerning an article published in LA about the scene in Sydney.

Might be interesting reading for some, or even better, a decent discussion.

Head over here to join in.

I'm a New Zealand food writer currently living in Melbourne, Australia cooking and eating local produce. I write for three New Zealand newspapers and recently launched my own website. It has a search facility on it if anyone is looking for something specific. Or you can email me from my website. There's also a links page.
