Gluten-free fun
Darlinghurst pub The Burdekin – which has recently opened its rooftop to the public for the first time in its history – has enlisted TV chef Helen Tzouganatos to create a gluten-free menu for Coeliac Awareness week, in partnership with Wilde gluten-free beer. From March 13–20, it’ll be serving a gluten and dairy-free beef brisket and beer pie, along with a range of gluten-free pizzas (which will set punters back just $5 each). Schooners of the Wilde beer – which is Fodmap-friendly and certified by Coeliac Australia – will also cost just $5 each.

A Franken-lammo
On first glance, Banksia Bakehouse’s new treat looks just like a lamington. But bite in, and you’ll find behind the dark chocolate and shredded coconut exterior, it’s a croissant, filled with dark-chocolate-coconut ganache and strawberry-rose jam. While nobody really knows the true origin of the lamington, some stories suggest a French chef may have been its creator, making this hybrid creation a perfect tribute to the cake.

On the beach
We don’t know about you, but typically we don’t buy our beach accessories from chicken shops. We’ll make an exception for this collab, though. Chargrill Charlie’s has teamed up with Bondi Rescue lifeguard and photographer Anthony Glick’s brand Destination Towels on a trio of beach towels, each bearing a famous Sydney beach: Bondi, Coogee or Shelly. On one side of the towel is an image of the beach, shot from an aerial helicopter, on the other artwork of the beach’s coordinates. The towels are quick-dry and don’t pick up sand. They’re now available for $50 from Chargrill Charlie’s stores and online.
