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.

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.

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

Roast root vegetables with sumac dressing


If you have time you can peel the carrots and beetroot first, but we find a good scrub is all that's needed for their tender skins to be edible.

You'll need

1 bunch Dutch carrots, trimmed 1 bunch baby beetroot, beetroot trimmed and halved, 1 cup leaves reserved separately 1 parsnip, halved lengthways, cut into wedges 1 Spanish onion, cut into wedges 6 oregano sprigs 6 garlic cloves, unpeeled 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 cup (loosely packed) baby spinach leaves To serve: crumbled Persian feta   Sumac dressing 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil Juice of 1½ lemons 1½ tsp sumac

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 250C fan-forced or hottest setting on conventional oven. Toss carrot, beetroot, parsnip, onion, oregano, garlic and oil in a roasting pan to combine and roast until vegetables are golden and bases are caramelised (20 minutes).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for sumac dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl to combine, season to taste and set aside.
  • 03
  • Squeeze roasted garlic from skins into sumac dressing, whisk to combine and set aside. Combine beetroot leaves, spinach leaves and roasted vegetables in a bowl, drizzle with half the dressing and toss to combine. Transfer to a platter, scatter with Persian feta and serve with remaining dressing to the side.
