Billed as the faster, cleaner way to cook, are these on-trend ovens all they’re cracked up to be? We take a close look at their rising popularity, USP versus the traditional convection cooker and how each type rates in terms of form, function, and above all, flavour in this buyer’s guide.

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.

Lemon tart

It's really important to seal the pastry well to prevent any seepage during cooking, and to trim the pastry soon after cooking. Let the tart cool in the tin before removing it, or it will crack.

Savoury tarts

Will your next baking project be a flaky puff pastry with pumpkin, goat's curd and thyme, or a classic bacon and Stilton tart? As autumn settles in, we're ticking these off one by one.

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.

Tagliatelle all'autunno


"This is a spin on the classic Italian-American primavera, which calls for the best spring vegetables," says Orr. "The vegetables I've used here are merely suggestions; use your favourites or whatever looks amazing at the market."

You'll need

1 quantity basic pasta dough (see basic pasta recipe) 250 gm podded peas (about 700gm unpodded) Juice of 1 lemon or to taste 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve 16 baby (or 4 large) globe artichokes 2 baby fennel bulbs, fronds discarded 150 ml dry white wine 100 gm butter, coarsely chopped 2-3 bunches trimmed broccolini (285gm) 1½ tbsp black sesame seeds, toasted

Method

  • 01
  • Prepare pasta according to basic pasta recipe. Roll pasta sheets through tagliatelle attachment, dust well with flour and place on a tray in even, untangled piles until required. Cover with plastic wrap to prevent drying.
  • 02
  • Blanch peas in boiling salted water until just tender (1-2 minutes). Drain, refresh and set aside.
  • 03
  • Combine lemon juice and oil in a bowl. Peel green outer leaves and stalks of the artichokes (remove chokes from large ones) and place in acidulated water while preparing the remainder. Slice thinly on a mandolin and add to lemon vinaigrette. Shave fennel thinly on a mandolin and add to artichoke mixture.
  • 04
  • Cook tagliatelle in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (2-4 minutes).
  • 05
  • Heat a large saucepan over high heat, add white wine and butter, whisk to emulsify. Add broccolini and stir for 1 minute, then add fennel and artichoke mixture, and peas, season to taste, then toss to combine. Remove from heat and allow the residual heat to wilt the vegetables. Drain tagliatelle, add to sauce and toss together. Add a splash of extra-virgin olive oil and toss again. Serve garnished with black sesame seeds.
