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.

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.

Fast autumn dinners

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

Stracchino and salami rolls


You'll need

2¾ tsp dried yeast 600 gm (4 cups) plain flour 30 gm butter, softened 120 gm pickled cippoline onions, coarsely chopped (see note) 120 gm sopressa salami, finely chopped ¼ cup oregano leaves, coarsely chopped 1 tbsp finely chopped rosemary 160 gm stracchino, coarsely grated (see note) To serve: ricotta

Method

  • 01
  • Combine ¼ tsp yeast and 2 tbsp warm water in a bowl, stand for 10 minutes or until foamy, add 165ml warm water and 250gm flour and stir for 2 minutes or until smooth and shiny. Cover and stand for 3 hours or until doubled in size. Starter can be refrigerated at this stage and brought to room temperature before using.
  • 02
  • Combine remaining yeast and ¼ cup warm water in the bowl of an electric mixer and stand for 10 minutes or until foamy, add starter and beat for 4-5 minutes or until smooth. Add butter and combine. Add onion, sopressa and herbs and beat for 2-3 minutes or until well combined. Add remaining flour, combine and season to taste. Change to a dough hook attachment and knead for 3 minutes or until shiny and elastic. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, turn to coat, cover with a tea towel and stand for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 220C. Knock back dough, turn onto a floured surface and roll out dough to a 35cm x 60cm rectangle, scatter stracchino along long edge, then roll lengthways into a cylinder. Cut into 12 pieces and place, cut-side down, onto a lightly oiled oven tray. Cover with a tea towel, stand for 30 minutes, then bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Serve warm, spread with ricotta.
