From home-style cooking to fine-dining: rotisserie is making a comeback!
While some cooking methods are using the latest technologies (think sous-vide and molecular cooking), there is also a growing appetite for high-end roasted meats, for both dine-in and take out customers. Whether spit-turned or oven-roasted, the country’s hottest kitchens are now dishing up rotisseried whole birds, fish and even vegetables.
Although on the surface the cooking technique may appear less sophisticated; the meat constantly heated from three sides allowing for a very even cooking process, Chefs are infusing technology in the process elevating the age-old formula to new heights.
Forerunning this trend are high profile ventures Pickett’s Deli & Rotisserie at the Queen Victoria Markets in Melbourne, and The Chicken Shop by Merivale, on Sydney’s Oxford Street by Merivale.
The idea behind rotisserie concept dining, however, is simple: take the humble roast chicken and deliver mouth-watering, game-changing sophisticated meals, and now the new roasting techniques are making waves in the fine-dining world, with the likes of Phillipe Mouchel and Mike McEnearney serving up roasted birds in their eponymous restaurants.
