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.

El Niño


Start this recipe a day ahead to dry out the coriander overnight.

You'll need

To garnish glass rim: lime wedge 50 ml Blanco Tequila 1 tbsp fresh cucumber juice 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice 2 tsp agave nectar (see note)   Coriander salt Bunch coriander stems, well washed 130 gm river salt flakes   Jalapeño sauce 1 bottle (60ml) Tabasco Green Jalapeño Pepper sauce Large handful coriander leaves

Method

  • 01
  • For coriander salt, place coriander stems between 2 dry disposable kitchen cloths and store in a warm dry place (on top of your oven) overnight, or until dry and crisp. Once dry, put in a mortar with the salt and pound to a fine powder with a pestle. Store in an airtight container.
  • 02
  • For the jalapeño sauce, add the Tabasco and the same amount of water to a blender and blitz with the coriander leaves. Fine strain then store in a container in the fridge for up to a month.
  • 03
  • Wet half the rim of a cocktail glass using a lime wedge and dip it into the coriander salt to coat. Add remaining ingredients and 1 tsp of the jalapeño sauce to a shaker with ice. Shake hard and fast, then fine strain into your salt-rimmed cocktail glass.
Note Agave nectar is available from health-food shops. This recipe is from Recipes for a Good Time (RRP $59.95) by Elvis Abrahanowicz & Ben Milgate, published by Murdoch Books, and has been reproduced with minor Gourmet Traveller style changes.
