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.

Rib roast with potato gratin


A rib roast is an investment - take care to rest the meat well to make the most of it.

You'll need

2 tbsp olive oil 2 tbsp chopped rosemary 2 tsp Dijon mustard, plus extra to serve 3 anchovy fillets, crushed with a mortar and pestle 1 rack of beef (also known as a standing rib roast), with at least 5 ribs (4.3kg) 3 onions, thickly sliced   Potato gratin 500 ml pouring cream 4 garlic cloves, crushed 5 Desiree potatoes (about 2kg) ½ nutmeg

Method

  • 01
  • Combine oil, rosemary, mustard and anchovies in a non-reactive dish, add beef, turn to coat, cover and marinate at room temperature (1 hour).
  • 02
  • For potato gratin, preheat oven to 190C. Whisk cream and garlic in a bowl to combine. Peel and thinly slice potatoes on a mandolin into the cream, tossing to coat as you go to prevent discolouration, season to taste and arrange in even layers in a buttered 30cm x 30cm oven dish. Season with freshly ground black pepper and a grating of nutmeg, cover with baking paper then foil and bake on lowest rung of oven until a knife pierces potato easily (45 minutes to 1 hour). Uncover and cook until golden (30 minutes). Keep warm.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, place beef on top of onions in a roasting dish and roast on top shelf until medium-rare (1½ hours). Set beef aside loosely covered with foil to rest (30 minutes), then serve with gratin and mustard.
