Seven recipes that shaped 1980s fine dining
21.03.2017

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.

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.

Baked chicken with yoghurt


You'll need

50 ml olive oil 1 chicken (about 1.7kg), jointed 500 ml (2 cups) chicken stock 400 gm Greek-style yoghurt 8 golden shallots, diced 2 garlic cloves, crushed 4 thyme sprigs Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon 1 tbsp Greek honey   Burghul salad 200 gm (1¼ cups) fine burghul 2 vine-ripened tomatoes, diced 2 spring onions, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 cup (firmly packed) each flat-leaf parsley and mint, finely chopped 2 tbsp olive oil Juice of 1 lemon, or to taste Seeds of ¼ pomegranate

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 160C. Heat oil in a large casserole over medium-high heat, add chicken and cook until browned all over (5-10 minutes), then add remaining ingredients. Cover with baking paper and a lid and braise in oven until very tender (2-3 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for burghul salad, place burghul in a bowl, pour over boiling water to cover by 2cm and stand until tender (5-10 minutes). Drain well, scatter over a tray and stand to dry (30 minutes). Season to taste, transfer to a bowl with remaining ingredients, toss to combine and serve with chicken.

The light, fresh flavours in this recipe are similar to those in the Italian dish maiale al latte - pork cooked in milk. The yoghurt becomes curds that more than make up for in flavour what they lack in looks.
