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.

Gratin of kipfler potatoes


The potatoes can be prepared several hours in advance, then roasted when you're ready.

You'll need

2 garlic cloves 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, washed and leaves picked 2 tsp each thyme and rosemary, coarsely chopped 100 ml extra virgin olive oil 1 kg evenly sized kipfler potatoes, cut lengthwise about 3cm thick

Method

  • 01
  • Bring a saucepan of water, along with 1 garlic clove, to the boil. Once boiling, discard the garlic, add plenty of salt and return to the boil. Add parsley leaves and cook until very tender (5 minutes; the leaves should dissolve when pressed between your fingers). Drain, refresh under cold running water, then drain and squeeze out most of the water. Coarsely chop parsley, then add thyme and rosemary. Finely chop remaining garlic and add to herbs with half the oil and set aside.
  • 02
  • Boil the potatoes in salted water for 16 minutes (they should be slightly undercooked), then drain and place in a large bowl. Season with salt and plenty of pepper and drop dollops of the herb oil on top, then use your hands to toss thoroughly. Transfer to a gratin dish and drizzle the remaining oil over the surface.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 180C and bake the gratin until potatoes are nicely browned (20-25 minutes) and serve with gayettes de Provence.
