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.

Add basil and refrigerate overnight to allow flavours to develop. Strain before serving.
  • 02
  • For coconut dressing, process ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Season to taste.
  • 03
  • Combine kingfish, scallops and citrus juices in a bowl, and set aside to marinate (2-3 minutes).
  • 04
  • Combine tomatoes, fennel, coconut, onion, cucumber and herbs, drizzle with coconut dressing and toss to combine.
  • 05
  • Drain excess liquid from seafood, add seafood to salad, toss to combine and season to taste. Serve drizzled with tomato oil.

Note Start this recipe a day ahead to allow the flavours in the tomato oil to develop.
