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.

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.

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.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

2 tsp sesame seeds Large pinch ground Sichuan pepper 200 gm sashimi-grade baby calamari (about 2), cleaned and cut into 4mm strips 90 gm jicama (about 1 large), cut into julienne (see note) 60 gm black fungus (halved if large) 1 cup (firmly packed) coriander leaves 4 spring onions, cut into julienne   Black vinegar and sesame dressing 1 garlic clove 1 tbsp white sugar 1½ tbsp Chinese black vinegar 1½ tbsp light soy sauce 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 2 tsp sesame oil

Method
