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.

Fast autumn dinners

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

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.

Minced pork noodles


This recipe is inspired by a dish by GT contributor Tony Tan - think of it as a Chinese version of spag bol.

You'll need

50 ml vegetable oil 6 spring onions, white part thinly sliced into rings, green part thinly sliced diagonally 1 tbsp finely grated ginger 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 350 gm minced pork 2 tbsp brown bean sauce (see note) 1 tbsp each hoisin, soy sauce and Shaoxing wine 350 ml chicken stock 250 gm fresh Shanghai or udon noodles To serve: roasted sesame seeds and Lebanese cucumber cut into julienne

Method

  • 01
  • Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat, add white part of spring onion, ginger and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant (1 minute). Add pork and continue stir-frying, breaking up clumps with a spoon, until browned (3-4 minutes).
  • 02
  • Stir bean sauce, hoisin, soy sauce and Shaoxing wine in a bowl to combine, then add stock. Add to pork mixture and simmer until sauce reduces (4-5 minutes).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, cook noodles in a saucepan of boiling salted water (2-3 minutes), then drain and divide among bowls. Top with pork mixture and serve hot, scattered with sesame seeds and topped with spring onion greens and cucumber.

Note Brown bean sauce is available from Chinese grocers.
