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.

Chicken and sausage gumbo


You'll need

60 gm fat, such as duck fat, lard, ghee or coconut oil 800 gm chicken Marylands (about 4), bone in, skin on, halved at the joint 180 gm fresh chorizo, thickly sliced 100 gm speck or bacon, diced into 1cm pieces 2 tbsp tapioca flour (arrowroot) 1 red capsicum, trimmed, seeds removed, finely chopped 1 each onion and celery stalk, finely chopped 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped 800 gm canned whole peeled tomatoes 2 thyme sprigs 1 fresh bay leaf ¼ tsp smoked paprika Pinch of cayenne pepper 375 ml (1½ cups) chicken stock (preferably homemade) 2 large pinches of saffron threads 2 cups coarsely chopped kale leaves 10 okra, halved lengthways   Broccoli rice 800 gm broccoli (about 2 heads), florets and stalk coarsely chopped 2 tbsp fat, such as duck fat, lard, ghee or coconut oil

Method

  • 01
  • Heat 2 tbsp fat in a large casserole over medium-high heat. Season chicken to taste, then fry in batches skin-side down, turning once, until golden brown (3-4 minutes each side). Transfer to a plate.
  • 02
  • Add chorizo and speck to pan, and stir occasionally until golden brown (4-5 minutes), then transfer to plate with chicken.
  • 03
  • Add remaining fat to pan, reduce heat to low-medium, add tapioca flour and stir continuously until lumps dissolve and a thin paste forms (30 seconds to 1 minute). Add capsicum, onion, celery and garlic, and stir occasionally until softened (4-5 minutes). Add tomato, thyme, bay leaf, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper, return chorizo and speck to pan, and stir occasionally until simmering (4-5 minutes). Add stock, saffron and chicken, bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low-medium and simmer until the juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a knife (20-25 minutes). Add kale and okra and simmer uncovered until okra is tender (8-10 minutes). Season to taste.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for broccoli rice, pulse broccoli in a food processor until it resembles rice. Heat fat in a frying pan over medium heat, add broccoli and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened (3-4 minutes). Season to taste and serve hot with gumbo.
