We go way back – we’ve worked together with Claudio Raschella on some amazing photo shoots and to say Claude is a master at his craft is no understatement. He has a way with people like no-one else I know and manages to capture the real essence of the moment through his photographs. If you’re planning a wedding and considering photographers, please have a look at Claude’s website to see his work. He is based in Sydney but regularly visits us (oh, and his clients) in Adelaide and flies all over the country photographing his adoring fans.

This issue we enjoy long, lingering days and balmy, fun-filled nights celebrating the quintessential Australian summer. We kick-start the season with our new no-fuss party-starter ideas. We visit two families in the ‘design set’, from roof top cocktails in Sydney with The Minimalist to smoothies and couch time with Mr and Mrs White. We help throw a relaxed family bbq, pop in to a quick girls’ catch up at a hip pizza kitchen and share the inspiring story of the young entrepreneur behind Blackboard Coffee as he brings a new food scene to the Gold Coast. Enjoy the laid-back summer vibe and sit back with our best issue yet! Pre-order your copy here.

Potatoes, fried golden brown – mmm, there aren’t many foods that offer more starchy comfort on a brisk day like it is here. This quick and easy potato tortilla is a definite crowd-pleaser. Serve slices with a crisp, green salad or with a full-flavoured relish like our favourite, carrot and ginger chutney. Here is the recipe, courtesy of the food business;
8 potatoes, cubed (Desiree or any waxy variety)
vegetable oil for deep frying
1 clove garlic, diced
1 onion, sliced
20ml extra virgin olive oil
8 eggs, free-range, organic if possible
1/4 bunch parsley, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon salt
Pre-heat oven to 180C. Line a terrine or loaf tin with baking paper. Deep fry the potatoes in the vegetable oil until light golden – set aside to drain. In a frypan, sauté onions and garlic in the olive oil until coloured. In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Add cooked potatoes, onion mixture and remaining ingredients. Pour mixture into the lined tin and bake for approximately 20 minutes until dark golden in colour. To serve, cut into 2cm slices and pan fry both sides in olive oil. Allow to drain on kitchen paper and serve with salad or chutney.
