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.

Espresso marshmallows


You'll need

gelatine leaves (titanium strength) 30 ml espresso, cooled 330 gm (1½ cups) white sugar 160 ml corn syrup Scraped seeds of 1 vanilla bean For greasing: oil 160 gm pure icing sugar 10 gm Dutch-process cocoa 10 gm cornflour

Method

  • 01
  • Break gelatine into small pieces, combine in the bowl of an electric mixer with coffee and 50ml cold water and set aside. Combine sugar, corn syrup and 125ml water in a small saucepan, stir over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil and cook until syrup reaches 115C on a sugar thermometer (2-3 minutes).
  • 02
  • Whisk gelatine mixture on low speed, add hot syrup in a thin steady stream down the side of the bowl, add vanilla and whisk on high speed until thick and fluffy and tripled in volume (8-10 minutes). Spoon into a lightly oiled 18cm x 23cm cake tin, quickly smooth top with a lightly oiled spatula and stand at room temperature until set (2-3 hours).
  • 03
  • Sift icing sugar, cocoa and cornflour into a bowl. Turn marshmallow out of tin onto a lightly oiled piece of baking paper, cut into 3cm cubes with a lightly oiled knife, then toss in cocoa mixture. Store in an airtight container, in cocoa mixture, until required. Marshmallows will keep for a week.
