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.

Spiced lamb pizza with onion, mint and sumac


You'll need

300 gm (2 cups) wholemeal flour 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve 80 gm roasted capsicum (see note) 2 tbsp tomato passata 1 tsp harissa 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 300 gm minced lamb Finely grated rind of 1 lemon and juice of ½, plus extra wedges to serve 1 tsp sumac ¼ tsp chilli flakes ½ tsp dried mint   Onion, mint and sumac salad 1 Spanish onion, thinly sliced Juice of ½ lemon, or to taste 1 tsp sumac ½ cup each coarsely chopped mint and flat-leaf parsley 1½ tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 240C and place 2 baking trays in the oven to heat. Mix flour, olive oil, 1 tsp sea salt and 200ml water in a bowl to a rough dough, then knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth (1-2 minutes). Set aside.
  • 02
  • Process capsicum, tomato, harissa and half the garlic in a small food processor to combine, season to taste and set aside.
  • 03
  • Combine lamb, lemon rind and juice, spices, mint and remaining garlic in a bowl, season to taste and mix well.
  • 04
  • Halve dough and roll out each piece on a lightly floured piece of baking paper to 3mm thick and spread each with capsicum mixture, leaving a 1cm border. Scatter lamb mixture over, then drizzle with extra oil and use the baking paper to transfer to oven trays. Bake, swapping trays partway through cooking, until crisp and browned on the edges (15-20 minutes).
  • 05
  • Meanwhile, for salad, combine onion and lemon juice in a bowl and stand to soften slightly, then add remaining ingredients and toss to combine. Scatter onto pizza and serve with lemon wedges.

Note Roasted capsicum is available from delicatessens or in jars from supermarkets.
