The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age’s Good Food will celebrate the return of Australia’s restaurant and bar scene with the release of a special edition magazine 100 Good Things naming the best places to eat and drink in Sydney, Melbourne and beyond.
The glossy 36-page magazine, to be inserted into The Herald and The Age on Tuesday, December 8, will replace the annual Good Food Guide which has been on hold this year due to the pandemic and temporary restaurant closures.
“We are thrilled to publish 100 Good Things, our guides to summer’s best eating and drinking,” said publishing director Trudi Jenkins. “This is only the second time in 41 years that we have been unable to publish the Good Food Guide; this year due to COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions, which made reviewing impossible (and unfair) within the timeframe.
“Instead, thanks to the continued support of our Good Food Guide partners Citi and Vittoria Coffee, Australia’s most respected food media team has produced 100 Good Things, edited by Myffy Rigby and overseen by Good Food national editor Ardyn Bernoth and deputy editor Roslyn Grundy.”
100 Good Things will run as two separate editions – one in Melbourne and one in Sydney – featuring local finds, people and products that will ensure a summer of supporting the eating and drinking scene in each city.
“100 Good Things is a collection of people, places, moments and mementos that best represent 2020,” said Good Food national editor Ardyn Bernoth. “Think of it as your little black book for the summer months – everything you need to truly make the most of our wonderful cities and their local regions. Our expert writers have uncovered the newest cafes and cocktails bars, taco trucks, waterside dining spots. They’ve woven in their favourite food-delivery sites and design objects while also throwing a spotlight on the food heroes of the year.”
100 Good Things magazine will be available in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age on Tuesday, December 8
