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.

Chambéry


"Here we have super-refreshing and sophisticated flavours," says Ashton. "The grapefruit rosé provides a pleasant bitter-floral base, with the sumac syrup and Chambéryzette adds the sour-sweet balance that makes this Spritz so quaffable." Start this recipe a day ahead to make the grapefruit rosé.

You'll need

30 ml Chambéryzette (see note) 45 ml soda water To garnish: sliced strawberries and grapefruit twists (optional)   Grapefruit rosé Finely grated zest of ½ large or 1 small pink grapefruit 750 ml rosé   Sumac syrup 1 tbsp ground sumac 100 gm sugar

Method

  • 01
  • For grapefruit rosé, combine grapefruit zest and rosé in a container, seal and refrigerate overnight to infuse. Strain through muslin, transfer to a bottle and reserve Makes 750ml. Grapefruit rosé will keep refrigerated for a week.
  • 02
  • For sumac syrup, combine sumac in a heatproof container with 200ml boiling water and stand to cool to room temperature. Strain through muslin, stir in sugar, then transfer to a bottle and reserve. Makes about 250ml. Sumac syrup will keep refrigerated for 2 weeks.
  • 03
  • Add 75ml grapefruit rosé, Chambéryzette and 20ml sumac syrup to a glass filled with ice. Top with soda, stir gently, garnish with strawberries and grapefruit, and serve.

Note "Chambéryzette, a strawberry apéritif, is available from major liquor retailers, and is worth hunting down, not least for the beautiful packaging," says Ashton. "It would be possible to substitute with a 50-50 mix of dry vermouth and strawberry liqueur, but this will ultimately cost more than just buying the Chambéryzette. It's also delicious by itself over ice or topped with a splash of sparkling wine."
