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.

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.

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.

Yoghurt and almond cake with orange-caramel peaches and vanilla yoghurt


You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.

You'll need

140 gm self-raising flour 4 eggs, separated 110 gm (½ cup) white sugar 210 gm (¾ cup) Greek-style yoghurt 80 ml (1/3 cup) olive oil 1 lemon, finely grated rind and juice only 70 gm natural almonds, finely ground, plus extra, shaved, to serve 110 gm (½ cup) caster sugar   Vanilla yoghurt 280 gm (1 cup) Greek-style yoghurt 40 gm (¼ cup) pure icing sugar, sieved 1 tsp vanilla extract   Orange-caramel peaches 3 peaches, cut into wedges, stones discarded 200 gm white sugar 1 orange, juice only

Method

  • 01
  • For vanilla yoghurt, place yoghurt in a muslin-lined sieve, place over a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to drain. Transfer yoghurt to a bowl, add icing sugar and vanilla, stir to combine and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Sift flour into a bowl and set aside. Whisk yolks and white sugar in an electric mixer until pale and creamy (5-7 minutes). Add yoghurt, olive oil, rind and juice, stir to combine, then fold in flour and ground almonds and set aside. Whisk eggwhite in an electric mixer until soft peaks form (2-4 minutes), then gradually add caster sugar and whisk until firm peaks form (1-2 minutes). Fold eggwhite mixture through yoghurt mixture, pour into a buttered, floured and base-lined 23cm-diameter springform cake tin and bake until golden and a skewer withdraws clean (35-40 minutes). Cool in tin on a wire rack. Cake is best eaten on day of making.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for orange-caramel peaches, place peaches in a heatproof bowl and set aside. Combine sugar and 60ml water in a small saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar and brushing down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush to remove sugar crystals, then cook until caramel (8-10 minutes). Add orange juice (be careful as mixture may spit), stir to dissolve. Pour over peaches, stir to combine and set aside for 1 hour, then spoon over cake, scatter with shaved almonds and serve with vanilla yoghurt.
