Seven recipes that shaped 1980s fine dining
21.03.2017

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.

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.

What is aquafaba?
20.03.2017

Aquafaba is growing in popularity among the vegan community as an egg substitute. But what exactly is this strange sounding ingredient?

Brisket burgers with cheddar, slaw and comeback sauce


The comeback sauce is a chilli mayonnaise from Mississippi that's used as a dipping sauce and salad dressing; here we've dressed our slaw with it for a nice hint of heat. We've minced brisket for these burgers - the good fat content produces a rich patty. If you'd prefer a lighter burger, use minced chuck.

You'll need

600 gm beef brisket, coarsely minced 2 tsp olive oil 150 gm cheddar slices, or other melting cheese 600 gm cabbage, finely sliced on a mandolin 1 carrot, cut into julienne 4 soft burger buns, halved To serve: pickles and potato chips   Comeback sauce 120 gm mayonnaise 50 gm Sriracha sauce 1 tbsp tomato sauce ½ small onion, finely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C and heat a baking tray. Pat beef into four 2cm-thick patties that are slightly larger than your buns. Heat a non-stick ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat, add oil and patties and cook, turning occasionally, until browned (8-9 minutes for medium-rare to medium). Top with cheddar, transfer to heated tray and place in the oven until cheddar melts and burgers are cooked to your liking (a further 1-2 minutes for medium).
  • 02
  • For comeback sauce, whisk ingredients in a bowl to combine, then season to taste.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, toast buns, cut side down only in the same pan you cooked burgers in over high heat (2-3 minutes).
  • 04
  • Combine cabbage and carrot in a bowl with 1-2 tbsp comeback sauce. Spread bun bases with extra sauce, top with cheeseburger, slaw and pickles, sandwich with bun tops and serve hot with potato chips.
