Rita Erlich

Acclaimed food writer Rita Erlich charts Melbourne’s burgeoning restaurant scene during the 1980s through her fascinating collection of menus and recipes. With compelling essays spanning the decade, readers are afforded a behind-the-scenes look at some of the industry’s triumphs and failures, and movers and shakers.

Erlich’s witty writing and expert knowledge of the restaurant scene brings the essays to life - from a look at the hugely successful and prolific restaurateur Richard Frank, who founded the Restaurant and Catering Association, to a detailed account of long-running restaurant Rogalsky’s and the chefs and sommeliers that passed through its doors.

With chapters devoted to Stephanie’s (Stephanie Alexander’s restaurant), Florentino (now Grossi Florentino) and Two Faces owner Hermann Schneider, this gourmet tome harks back to the city’s golden era of cooking and early culinary innovation. It also includes chapters on Gowings, Onions, Clichy, Jacques Reymond, Fleurie and The Latin, as well as an interview with ex-Flower Drum owner Gilbert Lau that examines the history ofChinese restaurants in Melbourne.
