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.

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.

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.

Apple desserts

Whether baked into a bubbling crumble, caramelised in a puff-pastry tart or served in an all-American pie, apples are a classic filling for fruity desserts. Here are the recipes we keep coming back to.

Choc-raisin choc tops


Coat the insides of the ice-cream cones with melted chocolate if you want to up the ante.

You'll need

Ice-cream cones, to serve Melted dark chocolate, for coating   Choc-raisin ice-cream 600 ml pouring cream 200 ml milk 150 ml muscat or Pedro Ximénez 6 egg yolks 100 gm caster sugar 500 gm dark chocolate (55% cocoa solids), finely chopped 150 gm raisins or dried muscatels   Choc-top coating 200 gm dark chocolate (55% cocoa solids), finely chopped 2 tbsp vegetable oil or coconut oil

Method

  • 01
  • For choc-raisin ice-cream, bring cream, milk and 50ml muscat just to a simmer over medium-high heat. Whisk yolks and sugar in a bowl until pale (5-6 minutes), then, whisking continuously, pour in cream mixture. Return to pan and stir over medium heat until mixture thickly coats the back of a spoon (4-5 minutes). Remove from heat, add chocolate, whisk until smooth, then strain into a bowl and cooled briefly, whisking occasionally. Refrigerate to chill completely. Meanwhile, simmer raisins and remaining muscat in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until all liquid is absorbed (10-12 minutes). Cool. Churn chocolate mixture in an ice-cream machine, adding raisins towards the end, then freeze. Makes about 1.5 litres.
  • 02
  • Coat the insides of the ice-cream cones with melted chocolate, tipping out excess, and refrigerate until set.
  • 03
  • For choc-top coating, melt chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth, then stir in oil.
  • 04
  • Scoop ice-cream into cones, then dip in topping, shaking off excess. Place on trays lined with baking paper and freeze until set. Freeze in an airtight container until required. Choc tops will keep for 2 weeks.
