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.
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.

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.
How do the experts approach that winter essential, cheese on toast?
"We think you can use any cheese you like," says Jamie Nimmo of The Stinking Bishops in Sydney's Newtown when we grill him about the best cheese for toasties. Nimmo and Kieran Day offer 30-plus cheeses at their eatery-shop and they reckon most of them would perform pretty well under a bit of heat. "It's about how you handle the flavour profile and what you match it to," he says. "You can't just whack tomato jam and blue cheese together. It's not going to work."
Hard examples such as Gouda and Manchego, he says, are "great
classic toasting cheeses". Softer cheeses such as Morbier offer
maximum pungency, while Tilsit and Gruyère (the cheese they use in
their Mr Crispy sandwich) are your go-to choices for stringier
results. GT's cheese man, Will Studd, on the other hand,
doesn't see all cheeses as equal. He counts farmhouse cheddar,
Marcel Petite Comté, raclette, Gruyère and mould-ripened chèvre
among his favourites, but suggests steering clear of blue cheese
and fromage de Meaux. "It melts away leaving just the rind scraps,"
he says, "which is not so nice."
