Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Chicken, pea and fennel broth with tarragon sauce


You'll need

50 ml olive oil 2 small leeks, thinly sliced bulbs of baby fennel, thinly sliced using a mandolin (fronds reserved) 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 1 (1.8kg) fresh organic chicken 2 bay leaves 4 pieces of lemon rind, removed with a peeler 200 gm day-old crustless sourdough bread, coarsely torn 150 gm frozen peas   Tarragon sauce 30 gm day-old crustless sourdough bread, coarsely torn 50 ml lemon juice 25 ml tarragon or white wine vinegar 2 hard-boiled egg yolks ¾ cup each of (loosely packed) tarragon and flat-leaf parsley leaves 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped 150 ml olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Heat oil in a large casserole over medium heat. Add leek, fennel and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft (10 minutes). Add chicken, bay leaves, lemon rind and 2½ litres cold water. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, weight down chicken with a plate and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cover and cook gently until meat is falling from the bone (about 1 hour).

  • Remove chicken from casserole (let broth continue to simmer). When chicken is cool, coarsely shred meat (discard skin and bones) and return to soup, add bread, season, and continue simmering until soup thickens (about 5 minutes). Add peas, cook for another 1-2 minutes then stir in fennel fronds.

  • Meanwhile for tarragon sauce, soak bread in lemon juice and vinegar until soft (about 10 minutes). Transfer to food processor, then add egg yolks, herbs and garlic and process until smooth. Add olive oil in a steady stream and process to combine. Season to taste, then serve drizzled over bowls of hot broth.
