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.

Fast autumn dinners

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

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.

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.

Roasted cauliflower salad with yoghurt dressing and almonds

The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

Rosewater flan with burnt orange caramel


A twist on a classic with a hint of rosewater in the custard and the deep flavours of burnt caramel and orange, which cut the richness of the custard.

You'll need

500 ml (2 cups) milk 250 ml (1 cup) double cream 1 orange, rind removed with a peeler 3 eggs 2 egg yolks 1 tbsp rosewater 110 gm (½ cup) white sugar 125 ml (½ cup) freshly squeezed orange juice

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 170C. Combine milk, cream and orange rind in a saucepan and stir over low heat until just beginning to boil.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, whisk eggs and yolks in a bowl to combine, add rosewater and half the sugar, then pour milk mixture over egg mixture and whisk to combine. Strain through a fine sieve into a jug and divide among four 250ml-capacity ovenproof dishes. Place dishes in a large roasting pan and fill pan with enough boiling water to come halfway up sides of dishes. Bake until custard is just set but still wobbles slightly in centre (30-35 minutes), remove from pan, cool completely.
  • 03
  • Scatter remaining sugar evenly over base of a small saucepan and stir occasionally over medium heat until sugar dissolves (1-2 minutes), then cook until dark caramel (7-8 minutes). Remove from heat, add orange juice (be careful, mixture will spit), stir to combine, then set aside to cool.
  • 04
  • Remove pith from orange with a sharp knife and thinly slice flesh crossways. Place an orange slice on top of each custard, spoon over caramel sauce and serve.
