Top Australian chefs to follow on Instagram in 2017

A lot has changed since we first published our pick of the best chefs to follow on Instagram (way back in the dark ages of 2013). Here’s who we’re double-tapping on the photo-sharing app right now.

Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

Yakiton with shichimi togarashi


Yakiton is Japanese grilled pork, cooked over coals in a similar fashion to yakitori. A coal barbecue will give you the best results, but you can also grill the skewers on a hot plate. If you're feeding a crowd just double or triple the recipe. The pickles can be made a day ahead.

You'll need

300 gm pork belly, cut into 3cm x 1cm strips To serve: shichimi togarashi (see note) and toasted sesame seeds   Pickles 1 telegraph cucumber, thickly sliced 200 gm daikon, thinly sliced 100 gm black fungi ½ tsp fine salt 250 ml (1 cup) brown rice vinegar 1 tbsp caster sugar 1 tsp finely grated ginger   Soy glaze 60 ml (¼ cup) light soy sauce 2 tbsp mirin 2 tbsp honey

Method

  • 01
  • Bring a charcoal barbecue to high heat. For pickles, combine cucumber, daikon and fungi in a bowl. Bring remaining ingredients and 60ml water to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar, then pour onto vegetables and set aside over ice to chill and pickle while you make yakiton. Pickles will keep well refrigerated for up to 3 days.
  • 02
  • For soy glaze, combine ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  • 03
  • Thread 2-3 pieces of pork onto each of 12 skewers. Brush with glaze, then grill, turning and brushing occasionally, until golden brown and cooked medium (2-4 minutes). Sprinkled with shichimi togarashi and serve with pickles.

Note Shichimi togarashi is a chilli spice blend available from Asian and Japanese grocers.
