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.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

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.

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.

Beef cheek Bourguignon


This is a take on the classic dish of beef braised in Burgundy with mushrooms and bacon lardons. The gelatinous quality of beef cheeks gives a new dimension to the dish, but by all means use a more traditional braising cut such as chuck steak if you prefer. Serve it with potatoes or the traditional buttered noodles.

You'll need

50 ml vegetable oil 4 beef cheeks (about 300gm each) 150 gm (1 cup) plain flour 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 350 gm golden shallots, peeled 300 ml pinot noir 1 litre (4 cups) beef stock 260 gm bacon, cut into 2cm pieces 3 thyme sprigs 2 fresh bay leaves 350 gm button mushrooms, halved ½ cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped, plus extra to serve

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Season beef cheeks, dust with flour and brown all over (7-8 minutes). Add garlic and shallots, and sauté until shallots just start to colour (3-4 minutes), then deglaze pan with wine. Transfer to a flameproof casserole dish, add stock, bacon and herbs, cover with a lid and braise in oven until beef is very tender (3-3 ½ hours).
  • 02
  • Place casserole over medium heat, add mushrooms and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are tender (8-10 minutes). Stir in parsley, scatter extra on top and serve.
