Choose apples with tight, smooth, un- blemished skin with good color for the variety. Apples should be firm to hard. The scent should be full and fresh. To test the degree of ripeness, give the apple a flick close to the stalk - a dull sound indicates ripeness, a hollow sound is a sign of over-ripeness. This is also the perfect time to enjoy pears. The first of the winter oranges is a variety called navelina. Sydney Fish Market's specials for the week starting Monday, May 25. Prices are in kg/doz.

Here's an idea for chocoholics - grab a slab of bitter, dark chocolate and a bottle of Logans Weemala 2007 Merlot, settle down in front of a winter's fire, and you will feel you have landed yourself in chocolate heaven. Blended from 50 per cent fruit from Mudgee and 50 per cent from Orange in NSW's Central Ranges, this is a light to medium-bodied red with flavours of black olives, red berries, plums and dark chocolate. It's nicely priced at $17, and if you're not into chocolate, match it with a salami- topped pizza. -- DAVID ELLIS Getting out WORLD PRESS PHOTO EXHIBITION Showcasing the most outstanding international photojournalism.
