‘By the mid-1960s, the flavours of the Mediter­ranean had be­come main­stream. And then in 1975, with the fall of Saigon, Mel­bourne was again trans­formed. This time it was moun­tains of green veg­eta­bles that as­tounded and ex­cited, bun­dles of le­mon­grass, chill­ies and co­rian­der, and a seem­ingly in­fi­nite va­ri­ety of noo­dles. The young loved this food — its im­me­di­acy, its fresh­ness, its rel­a­tively low cost — and it too be­came main­stream, at least in our cities.’
