Summer days by the sea…
  • The very thought of a long lazy lunch with friends conjures up visions of grilled seafood piled high and a crisp, cool glass of white wine. Enjoy our recipe ideas for relaxed summer entertaining.

  • Gather your friends, prepare a bounty of shareable platters and get ready to sail away… the fun starts here!

  • As the gulls wheel and turn over the water, you can take in your surrounds. The only decision you need to make is whether to start with the prawns, or go straight for the crispy chilli fish.

  • Kick off your shoes... and settle in for a long afternoon with good friends by the sea. The water lapping at our feet, a chilled glass in hand and the salty smell of summer in the air.

  • The vibrant mix of lime, lemon and nectarine aromatics in the Sauvignon Blanc makes food flavours sing and these delicate slices of tuna sashimi with cucumber and ginger sesame are no exception.

  • When the food’s gone and the light of the day starts to fade, take a moment to soak it all up and ask yourself: why don’t we all do this more often?

sweet 16th birthday – behind the scenes
  • In her signature style, Donna celebrated the magazine’s sweet 16th with an elegant and intimate event. Just like crafting a magazine, putting together an event takes a team, a vision and a whole lot of work behind the scenes.

  • What lies at the heart of any donna hay celebration? Cake, of course. And lots of it! Our trusted Queen vanilla was in constant demand amidst days of whipping, mixing and baking, inching ever-closer to the party vision - a cake table like no other!

  • The day arrives. There are tables to be dressed, miles and miles of cake stands to be polished, positioned and then repositioned. And then there’s the drizzle… the all-important, perfectly placed icing, chocolate and caramel drizzle.

Donna’s Sydney to Hobart adventure!
  • Skipper Aaron Rowe and his super-talented crew will guide the 80-footer across the Bass Strait. Aaron says he's hoping for bad weather - not sure I am!

  • I’m on board to make sure the crew is well fed, properly nourished and get us to Hobart as quickly as they can. We have to be ready for anything, sea sickness, bad weather… we need to be able to roll with it.

  • There’s only so much we can control, that’s where the snacks come in. Little and often is good. Potassium, protein and power-packed snacks will help to keep the crew strong and energised throughout the race.

  • No running water, no kitchen and no light to speak of… I mean, seriously - I’m wearing a headlamp! Who’d have thought I would ever be ocean racing, cooking for 16 big blokes while sporting a headlamp! Not me, that’s for sure!

  • What goes through your head when you’re sailing offshore? Where’s the opposition? How fast are we going? What’s happening with the weather? And what we are going to have for dinner?

  • I’ve been testing and cooking for weeks now. Green chicken curry and rice works well in a vac-pack, as does slow-cooked beef brisket. Bacon and egg pies are a winner. The boys have requested schnitzel and lamb chops. Nobody’s going hungry

  • There’s a sailing proverb, “One hand for yourself, and one for the ship” it’s actually about safety, to hold on as you work - but it's also for eating. I think we can still get everyone fed - with one hand!

  • Sailing offshore is all about the people, they are the engine driving the boat. They make the decisions, trim the sails and ooze the energy to win. And that engine (or 17) needs good fuel to function at its peak, to be on top of its game.

It’s been a big year. Massive. TV series, new book, European tour, two magazines to oversee. So when the offer came to join the Beau Geste crew to sail the Sydney to Hobart (my dream) what could I say?

    Pomegranates can be a little tricky. To loosen the seeds, roll the pomegranate on a bench, cut in half and scrape the seeds into a bowl. Cheers to that!


  • The rum hipster

    No travel plans over Christmas? No worries! One sip of this ginger, coconut and lime-infused drink will transport your senses to a tropical haven.


  • Rose and blackcurrant champagne

    Blood red and oh-so-sweet blackcurrant is making a comeback. Paired with champagne and a sprinkle of rose petals, you'll fall in love with its magical charm.


  • Lychee and vanilla martini

    Shaken or stirred, this delightful martini is Donna's specialty cocktail. She uses deliciously pretty lychee ice cubes to guarantee the flavour stays strong!


  • Pomegranate and ginger fizz

    A celebration wouldn't be right without bubbles! Keep the smiles wide and spirits high with a generous topping of champagne with your pomegranate and ginger-filled flutes.

Whether you fancy a fruity punch or a smooth martini our favourite elegant cocktails will add a bit of spritz and sparkle to your festive gathering!

Donna’s tips: for Christmas bliss

I adore Christmas. I love having everyone over to my place which usually involves a mix of classic and traditional dishes, as well as drinks to start, and of course, something spectacular for dessert. Try not to let cooking for a large number of people stress you out – there are plenty of things you can do in advance to help make the occasion as simple as possible, but one which will still be impressive and memorable.

Behind-the-scenes: the team on location
  • It's shoot day. The dh team have downed tools to spend the day on the Harbour where the sun is shining, the water sparkling and Donna's just raided her son Tom's stash of plastic letters to finish the message on our retro sign.

  • Donna and food director Steve get the heavy lifting done. Now, about those cocktails... fire up that Smeg juicer and start pouring the Patron tequila!

  • Estee Lauder to the rescue... Donna gets a make-up touch-up. Drinks are lining up and the Royal Doulton glassware stands ready!

  • Time for a feast! Pork belly steamed buns and a sashimi bar teaming with salmon, tuna and kingfish - look good enough to eat!

  • The old wooden table stretches out along the pier and the food is piled high... at last, it's time to eat!

  • Little buckets of tempura sweet potato chips join the party. Then Donna and managing editor Pru dive into the dessert table.

  • It's a donna hay party, of course there's cake! Steve adds the birthday candles... then, prepare to sing!

​Those beautiful glossy pictures don’t happen without a whole lot of work behind-the-scenes. Click through the gallery for a little peek inside the world of donna hay magazine as we celebrate our 15th birthday issue.

15th birthday party!
  • The media wall... donna hay style! The white-upon-white theme set the tone from the collector's edition magazine cover all the way to the glamorous cake table.

  • It wouldn't be a donna hay party without miles of cake and this dessert table did not disappoint. Straight off the pages of the birthday edition we served coconut layer meringue cake, hazelnut mocha mousse cake, tiramisu sponge and more!

  • Of course the cakes had to be iced at the venue (or risk the unthinkable in transit!). But literally kilos of icing later - our Smeg stand mixer was going strong. Meanwhile, Donna sneaks a quick make-up check and slick of Estee Lauder lip gloss.

  • The birthday girl cutting the heavenly cover-star cake, which is of course - perfectly poised on a donna hay for Royal Doulton cake stand! Click the image for the recipe of the raspberry and cream angel food cake.

  • Party guests .. Kylie Gilles with Donna, Paula Joye and Jane Roarty with Donna.

  • Party guests... Melissa Hoyer and Donna, Alex Perry and Erin Holland

best ever: Sunday roasts

  • Best Sunday roasts

    From crispy pork belly to slow-cooked beef brisket and tender lamb shoulder, these are our all-time favourite roasts - guaranteed to make Sunday special. Click the images for recipes.


  • Beef brisket with bourbon barbecue sauce

    This one's a favourite with dinner guests. Tender on the inside and crispy on the outside with a little added kick, thanks to the bourbon, paprika and cayenne.


  • Slow-roasted lamb shoulder with brussels sprouts and crispy kale

    You'll win the trophy for most beautiful roast. The contrast of deep browns and vibrant greens is enough to make anyone's tastebuds dance. A lighter option to roast potatoes.


  • Quick-butterflied-roast-chicken

    It's simple, it's quick and it's all in one pan. This butterflied chicken rests on sliced lemons, gently infusing the meat as it cooks. This roast is a mid-week staple in my house!


  • Crispy pork belly with cider pickled pears

    Who doesn't love a roast pork and pear combination! For a slice of Italy, drizzle your crispy pork with lashings of vincotto – made of grapes, it cuts through the richness of the pork.


  • Fennel and herb-crusted salmon with garlic potatoes

    As delicious as it is impressive, if you want to wow your guests with seafood on this will do the trick! Just add a simple crumb topping to a fresh salmon fillet add some tender potato chips and roast away.


  • Roasted spatchocks with port mushrooms and lentils

    This easy one-tray dish is my go-to when I want to cook a roast with minimum effort and maximum flavour. The bed of chorizo and mushroom really gives it that rich taste.


  • Prune-stuffed crispy pork with roasted red cabbage

    Prunes are my secret weapon to giving roast pork that hint of sweetness. A flavourful dish so tender and juicy, I guarantee you'll come back for seconds!


  • Milk-braised dijon chicken

    Not a traditional roast I hear you say, but the addition of some bold-flavoured mustard makes this a chicken dinner that packs a punch.

weekend baker: top five homemade breads

  • weekend baker: top five homemade breads

    I just love the smell of freshly baked bread – it's always better made at home! From seriously simple no-knead rolls to cheesy flatbreads and loaves, a big pumpkin bread or rosemary-infused crunchy knots, these will get you baking!


  • no-knead bread rolls

    This is the no-fuss way to make bread. The secret behind the no-knead process is all about fermentation. Giving it time to rise, instead of kneading it, lets the yeast work wonders. The result? Lovely, airy-textured bread.


  • garlic, sage and blue cheese twisted loaf

    The soft blue cheese mixed in with the garlic and sage offers a punch of flavour you and the family will love. The perfect accompaniment to pizza on a night in.


  • blackcurrant, brussels sprout and cheese flatbread

    Bread doesn't need to be bland. Bring your loaf to life by experimenting with various colours and ingredients. It'll look just like a work art, you almost won't want to eat it!


  • pumpkin, speck and fennel no-knead loaf

    I absolutely adore the unique flavour the pumpkin and speck add to this rustic loaf. It takes me back to the countryside every time I make it.


  • rosemary and provolone seeded knots

    Making these knots takes only a flick of the wrist. Simple, quick and elegant it's like a present for your tastebuds!

best ever: buttermilk fried chicken

​I can never resist a piece of crunchy and golden fried chicken, and, as with most things deep-fried, it tastes even better when you make it fresh at home! My southern-style recipe creates a perfectly balanced bite; soaking the chicken in buttermilk keeps the meat moist and juicy while the spicy flour mixture results in an impossibly crisp and flavourful skin.
