The Searzall

The Searzall certainly does what it says on the label. Invented by chef David Chang and author-gastronaut Dave Arnold, it attaches to a blowtorch to turn it into a handheld griller by diffusing the flame and removing the tang of propane, giving you 15,000 BTUs of even heat (more than twice what your stove can manage at home). Though the original idea was to use it to brown meat that had been cooked sous-vide, chefs are finding all sorts of uses for it, whether in restaurants, at home or even at the bar, as Luke Ashton demonstrates here, at Sydney's This Must Be the Place.

1980s recipes

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.

Apple desserts

Whether baked into a bubbling crumble, caramelised in a puff-pastry tart or served in an all-American pie, apples are a classic filling for fruity desserts. Here are the recipes we keep coming back to.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.
