Good Food will celebrate all that is excellent in Australia's world-leading food and drink industry with a special, for-this-year-only publication, the Good Food Guide 200.

Out of respect for a sector so hard hit by COVID-19 restrictions and still operating under social distancing limitations, we're replacing our annual Good Food Guide, which scores, ranks and awards hats to the country's best restaurants, with the Good Food Guide 200.

This list will still shout from the rooftops all that is wonderful about Australian dining without applying standard judging criteria in a year that has brought havoc and hardship for so many. The Good Food Guide will return bolder than ever in 2021.

Edited by Myffy Rigby, The Good Food Guide 200 will launch in November, shining a light on every style of cuisine at every price point from high-end trailblazers to hole-in-the-wall gems, with the only criterion for inclusion being deliciousness!  

The 200-strong list, focusing on NSW and Victoria, will be released in a glossy magazine and via our website, goodfood.com.au, which is attracting readers in record numbers.

This comes as the latest EMMA and Nielsen readership figures show that Good Food reaches a total monthly audience of 2.5 million, cementing its position as Australia's most respected premium food brand.

Good Food remains the most popular weekly section in both The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald newspapers. And from August, Good Food Magazine returns as a premium monthly special in Sunday Life magazine, published in Sydney's The Sun-Herald and Melbourne's The Sunday Age.
