Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

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.

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.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Potato and wild green salad with anchovy dressing


"If you're lucky enough to live close to some good foraging ground, this salad can be partially prepared at home and the remaining ingredients gathered on the way or at the picnic site," writes Dunn. "Of course you can use baby spinach, wild rocket and mizuna, but it's a fabulous feeling to do a little foraging, always provided you are absolutely sure of what you're picking and are confident it hasn't been sprayed."

You'll need

1.2 kg waxy potatoes, such as kipfler or pink fir apple 80 gm wild greens (such as chickweed, dandelion and fat hen), washed   Anchovy dressing 300 ml milk 6 garlic cloves, peeled 3 anchovy fillets 120 ml extra-virgin olive oil 2 tbsp white wine vinegar 1 tsp Dijon mustard

Method

  • 01
  • For anchovy dressing, place milk in a saucepan over medium heat, add garlic cloves and anchovy fillets and bring to the simmer. Cook until garlic is soft (about 10 minutes), then pour contents of pan into a blender. Allow to cool slightly, then add oil, vinegar and mustard and blend until smooth. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, adjusting acidity with a little extra vinegar if necessary.
  • 02
  • Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Add a pinch of salt, bring to the boil over high heat, then immediately reduce heat to a gentle simmer. Cook until potatoes are tender when pierced with a skewer (10-15 minutes). Drain and set aside to cool to room temperature, then slice any larger potatoes in half lengthways.
  • 03
  • To serve, place potatoes and wild greens in a large bowl, drizzle with anchovy dressing and toss to combine.
