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.
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.

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.
Discussing the real issues faced by chefs and producers.
When he meets a pizza topped with potato, mozzarella and anchovies, Max Allen reaches for a full-flavoured dry white.
Note Uncooked nettles really do sting; wear rubber gloves when handling them uncooked. Nettles are available from select greengrocers and farmers' markets; if they're unavailable, substitute flat-leaf parsley.
Like you, I normally reach for a bottle of red when anybody mentions pizza. A good, young, cherry-juicy sangiovese perhaps, or an earthy rustic grenache-based wine: easy-drinking styles of red. But if you think about the toppings on this pizza, I think you'll agree it'd be better with a full-flavoured dry white: the salty, fishy punch of anchovy needs some fat, sweet, grapy fruit; the creamy softness of the mozzarella needs some refreshing acidity; and the deep savoury earthiness of the nettles needs some mineral dryness. Southern Italy is home to a number of grape varieties that fit the bill perfectly, but a fiano would be a particularly good choice. The fiano grape produces whites that can be really heady and rich - that fill the nostrils with perfume and sit plumply on the tongue - but also retain a clean lick of acid on the finish. Until a couple of years ago, the only examples available here were Italian, and while there are some excellent Italian fianos I could recommend, it's a grape that seems to be flourishing in a range of Australian climates, so I'm sticking to local examples.
