Mushroom Ragú with Creamy Polenta – The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

A new month means a new TASTY TUESDAY, and we’re thrilled to welcome one of our FAVE foodies, Julia Busuttil Nishimura to TDF once more (yes, we’ve already exploited her talents not once but TWICE for this column over the past couple of years!).

For this series, Julia will share four hearty, comforting Autumnal recipes with a mediterranean flavour, kicking off with her incredible creamy polenta and mushroom ragú.  What makes this series extra special are the beautiful handcrafted serving dishes Julia has selected to serve each dish – she’s paired up with her bestie, Melbourne ceramicist Jessilla Rogers to create a range of plates and bowls which perfectly complement this month’s menu. DREAM TEAM.

A Rare Look Inside Fitzroy’s Iconic 1930s Cairo Flats

Melbourne is home to some truly incredible apartment buildings you just have to know where to find them.

One of the city’s best known and most admired early apartment complexes is the 1930s Cairo Flats. Designed almost 90 years ago by architect Acheson Best Overend as 36 ‘bachelor’ apartments (26 studios and 10 with a separate bedroom), this apartment complex is beloved among Melbourne’s architecture community as a prime exemplar of well-designed, medium-density, minimal housing in Australia.

We recently spent the day capturing the complex and two of its current residents; author Jennifer Down and creative director Anna Fullerton. 

What a Serving of Alcohol Looks Like [Infographic]

Weight LossWhat a Serving of Alcohol Looks Like

Quick, what does one serving of your favorite drink look like? It’s not as easy to quantify as we think, and chances are you’re probably putting more calories in your body than you realize.

On average, it takes about an hour for the body to metabolize one standard drink as defined by U.S. guidelines: 12 ounces of 5% beer, 5 ounces of 12% wine or 1.5 ounces of 40% liquor. Obviously this varies with body weight, sex, age, individual metabolic rate, the type and strength of the alcohol, whether you’ve eaten recently and what medications you take, but if those serving sizes sound small compared to what the bartender serves or what you typically pour yourself, just wait until we show you some of your favorite cocktails.

To help you log those boozy beverages more accurately, we’re showing you what one standard serving of 10 different alcoholic beverages really looks like (at least according to the International Bartender’s Association) and the calories each serving contains.
