On Tuesdays he's dropping a weekly episode of Raph’s Mean Cuisine, starring familiar faces from the Melbourne food scene and celebrating long-forgotten dishes of Aussie childhoods past.
That means Rashid's parents’ “hectic” homemade chow mein. Or buttery, garlicky, breadcrumbed chicken kiev. Basically, any dish you’d find flipping through an ’80s copy of Women’s Weekly magazine – zhooshed up for 2020.
The seven episodes were all filmed late last year in Rashid’s West Brunswick home on his kitchen stovetop, which is unfortunately now broken. Each is about 10 minutes long.
Rashid will be prepping a roast lamb with Nourse and making tacos with Hernandez, while Kellock’s dish is yet-to-be-revealed.
A self-confessed sour cream and sweet-chilli sauce fan, Rashid wants people to openly enjoy the daggy foods dear to their hearts. The chicken kiev may even make a triumphant return.
