Melbourne's best late-night bars

As the shutters come down in other Australian capitals, Melbourne's vibrant nightlife is just hitting it's stride. Michael Harden burns the midnight oil at the city's best late-night bars and diners.

Twelve-hour Indian-spiced lamb shoulder with saffron pilaf

As the name indicates, this dish requires planning ahead. That said, the long cooking time is offset by simple preparation, with melt-in-the-mouth textures and deep flavours the pay-offs. Start this recipe two days ahead to marinate and roast the lamb.

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Pasta fagioli


You'll need

100 gm flat pancetta, cut into batons 100 ml extra-virgin olive oil 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 3 golden shallots, finely chopped 2 inner stalks of celery, coarsely chopped 2 tbsp finely chopped rosemary leaves 375 gm each canned borlotti and kidney beans, drained 250 ml (1 cup) red wine 400 ml chicken stock 200 gm canned whole tomatoes 125 ml (½ cup) tomato sugo or passata 200 gm short pasta, such as tubetti or gnocchetti To serve: finely grated parmesan and extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Combine pancetta and oil in a large heavy-based saucepan and cook over medium heat until fat renders and pancetta starts to colour (4-5 minutes). Add garlic, shallot, celery and rosemary and cook until soft and starting to caramelise (5-6 minutes). Add beans and cook until starch begins to form on the bottom of pan (3-4 minutes), being careful it doesn’t catch. Deglaze with wine, cooking until reduced completely (7-8 minutes), then add stock, tomatoes and sugo. Reduce heat to low and cook, just simmering, for 1-1½ hours, stirring frequently so mixture doesn’t catch on bottom of pan.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  • 03
  • Transfer a quarter of the soup mixture to a food processor and purée, then return to pan. Add pasta, stir to combine and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately scattered with parmesan and drizzled with olive oil.
