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.

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.

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.

Apple desserts

Whether baked into a bubbling crumble, caramelised in a puff-pastry tart or served in an all-American pie, apples are a classic filling for fruity desserts. Here are the recipes we keep coming back to.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

Kaffir lime and coconut tart


You'll need

220 gm (1 cup) caster sugar 4 eggs, separated 275 gm (5½ cups) flaked coconut 4 kaffir lime leaves, finely shredded   Lime butter 4 lemons, finely grated rind and juice only 2 limes, finely grated rind and juice only 440 gm (2 cups) caster sugar 12 egg yolks 1 tsp vanilla essence 300 gm butter, softened, coarsely chopped To serve: double cream

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Using an electric mixer, whisk sugar and egg yolks until thick and pale. In a separate bowl, whisk eggwhites until soft peaks form. Add the eggwhites, coconut and lime leaves to egg yolk mixture and fold gently to combine. Spoon the coconut mixture into a baking paper-lined 26cm-diameter springform cake pan, spreading evenly to coat base and sides. Bake until golden (15-20 minutes), then set aside to cool.
  • 02
  • For lime butter, combine lemon and lime rinds and juices, sugar, egg yolks and vanilla essence in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water, whisk to combine, then stir with a wooden spoon until mixture starts to thicken (about 10 minutes). Gradually stir in butter one piece at a time, ensuring it’s well incorporated before adding more. Continue stirring until mixture is thick (10-15 minutes). Pour into prepared base and refrigerate overnight to set. Cut into wedges and serve with double cream.
Note You’ll need to start this recipe a day ahead.

“Sayers Food in Leederville serves the most incredible gluten-free kaffir lime and coconut tart with a macaroon crust. I’d love to have the recipe so I can make it for my friends and family.”
