Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Teriyaki-glazed bonito with vinegared wakame salad


The pairing of salty-sweet teriyaki sauce with the rich char-grilled meat of bonito is a perfect combination. Soak the wooden skewers in water for half an hour before using them to prevent them burning.

You'll need

2 bonito fillets (about 300gm each), cut into 3cm cubes   Teriyaki glaze 80 ml (1/3 cup) soy sauce 80 ml (1/3 cup) mirin 40 ml sake 30 gm brown sugar 5 gm (1cm piece) ginger, finely grated   Vinegared wakame salad 60 ml (¼ cup) rice vinegar 2 tbsp soy sauce 1 tbsp mirin Pinch of white sugar 25 gm dried wakame (see note), coarsely chopped, soaked in cold water for 15 minutes, drained, squeezed of excess water ½ Lebanese cucumber, seeds removed, thinly sliced 1 tsp sesame oil 1 spring onion, thinly sliced For topping: chilli powder (optional)

Method

  • 01
  • For teriyaki glaze, stir ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves, reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce is thick (18-20 minutes), then set aside to cool.
  • 02
  • For vinegared wakame salad, bring vinegar, soy sauce, mirin and sugar to the simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat, then set aside to cool. Place wakame and cucumber in a bowl, pour pickling liquid over and set aside for 30 minutes to pickle. Drain, drizzle with sesame oil and top with onion and chilli powder just before serving.
  • 03
  • Preheat a char-grill, thread 2 pieces of bonito onto each wooden skewer, brush with teriyaki glaze and grill in batches, turning once, until golden and cooked through (4-6 minutes). Brush with extra teriyaki and serve hot with vinegared wakame salad.

Note Dried wakame is available from Japanese and Asian grocers.
