Sydney’s Eleven Bridge to close. For real this time. Sort of. Again.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Chorizo and Manchego tortilla


Sausage. Eggs. Cheese. What a brilliant combo. A dollop of homemade, garlicky alioli and that's about as good as it gets.

You'll need

60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 2 chorizo, thinly sliced 450 gm chat potatoes, very thinly sliced ½ Spanish onion, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 6 eggs 1 lemon, finely grated rind only 50 gm Manchego, thinly shaved, plus extra to serve 1/3 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley   Alioli 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 2 egg yolks 200 ml extra-virgin olive oil 30 ml sherry vinegar, or to taste

Method

  • 01
  • For alioli, pound garlic and 2 tsp sea salt in a mortar and pestle until a fine paste forms, then add yolks and mix to combine. Add oil in a thin steady stream, mixing with pestle to emulsify, then add vinegar, season to taste and set aside. Makes 300ml.
  • 02
  • Heat half the olive oil in a 20cm-diameter (base measurement) non-stick frying pan or cast-iron pan over medium-high heat, add chorizo and sauté until crisp (2-3 minutes), transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon and set aside. Return pan to heat and add remaining olive oil. Add potato and sauté until tender (4-5 minutes), add onion and garlic and sauté until tender (2-3 minutes). Drain in a colander (reserve oil), add to chorizo.
  • 03
  • Whisk eggs and lemon rind lightly to combine in a bowl, season to taste and pour over potato mixture. Stir through Manchego and parsley and set aside.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, preheat a grill to high. Heat reserved oil in an ovenproof frying pan over medium heat, add egg mixture, shaking pan to level top and cook, shaking pan frequently, until half set (6-8 minutes), then grill until golden and set (4-5 minutes). Serve warm or at room temperature with alioli, scattered with extra Manchego.
