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.

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.

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.

Fat chips with feta


"True Hellenic street food - I love this," says Calombaris. "The feta acts as the salt to the chip."

You'll need

3 large sebago potatoes, cut into 2cm-thick chips 1 tbsp fine salt 4 garlic cloves, unpeeled 100 ml olive oil For deep-frying: cottonseed oil 1 tbsp flaked sea salt 1 tsp dried rigani (Greek oregano) 80 gm feta, preferably Dodoni

Method

  • 01
  • Cover potato chips with cold salted water in a saucepan and bring to the simmer over medium-high heat until just tender (7-8 minutes). Drain, then spread on a tray lined with several layers of absorbent paper and set aside to dry (2-3 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C. Wrap garlic loosely in foil and roast until golden and tender (15-20 minutes). Squeeze from skins into a bowl, add olive oil and set aside.
  • 03
  • Heat cottonseed oil in a large saucepan to 140C. Fry chips in batches until pale golden (7-8 minutes; take care, hot oil may spit), drain on absorbent paper and set aside, then increase oil temperature to 180C.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, combine sea salt and rigani in a bowl and set aside.
  • 05
  • Deep-fry chips again in batches until crisp and dark golden (2-3 minutes; take care, hot oil may spit), then drain on absorbent paper. Toss in garlic oil and serve hot with feta crumbled over, and seasoned to taste with rigani salt.
