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.

Roasted cauliflower salad with yoghurt dressing and almonds

The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

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.

Artichokes à la barigoule


"On a recent trip to Melbourne I ate at many great restaurants, but Daniel Southern's artichokes à la barigoule at Comme stood apart from the crowd."

You'll need

100 ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling 3 onions, thinly sliced 2-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped 750 ml dry white wine Bouquet garni (see note) 750 ml (4 cups) chicken stock 8 globe artichokes 1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced, placed in acidulated water, fronds reserved To serve: fennel pollen (see note) To serve: crusty bread   Carrot fondant 3 large carrots 2 garlic cloves, crushed 2 fresh bay leaves 1 thyme sprig 750 ml (4 cups) extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For carrot fondant, preheat oven to 100C. Combine carrots, garlic, bay leaves and thyme in a small ovenproof dish, add enough oil to just cover and roast until carrots are tender (1 hour; press gently with a skewer to check). Set aside to cool slightly, then remove carrots with a slotted spoon and slice diagonally into thick pieces (discard solids; reserve oil for another use).
  • 02
  • Heat oil in a casserole over medium heat, add onion and garlic and stir occasionally until onion is tender (10-15 minutes). Add wine and bouquet garni and simmer until reduced by half (15-20 minutes). Add stock and simmer until reduced by half (15-20 minutes). Meanwhile, remove tough outer leaves of artichokes (discard), halve, remove hairy choke with a teaspoon (discard) and place in acidulated water to prevent discolouring as you go. Add artichokes to reduced stock, season to taste, cover with a lid, reduce heat to low and simmer until artichokes are just tender (15-20 minutes). Add carrot, stir to combine and season to taste. Discard bouquet garni and divide artichoke barigoule among plates, scatter with drained fennel, fennel pollen and reserved fennel fronds, drizzle with extra oil, season to taste, top with and serve hot with crusty bread.
Note For bouquet garni, tie 2 thyme sprigs, 2 fresh bay leaves, 1 star anise and ½ tsp each coriander seeds, fennel seeds and black peppercorns in a piece of muslin. Fennel pollen is available from select delicatessens and Waimea Trading.
