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.

Where Melbourne's finest will take the World's Best Chefs
20.03.2017

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.

Pissaladière


Mellow caramelised onions and salty anchovies make a perfect pairing in this Provençale classic, which in turn is a great accompaniment for a glass of riesling on a spring afternoon.

You'll need

4 large onions, very thinly sliced 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil 24 anchovy fillets 24 Niçoise olives   Dough 10 gm dried yeast 350 gm (2 cups) bread flour 1 tbsp olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For dough, combine yeast with 230ml tepid water in a bowl and stand until frothy (5-10 minutes). Transfer to an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook and add flour, olive oil and ½ tsp salt, and knead until smooth but still a little sticky (10-15 minutes). Cover and set aside until doubled in size (1 hour).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, combine onion and olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Season to taste, then cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelised (1 hour).
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 230C. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface, dusting occasionally to prevent sticking, to a 35cm x 25cm rectangle. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Spread onion mixture over, then scatter with anchovies and olives. Bake until golden and puffed (13-16 minutes). Serve warm.
