Flour and Stone Recipes

Baker extraordinaire Nadine Ingram of Sydney's Flour and Stone cooks up a sweet storm for Easter, including the much loved bakery's greatest hit.

Savoury tarts

Will your next baking project be a flaky puff pastry with pumpkin, goat's curd and thyme, or a classic bacon and Stilton tart? As autumn settles in, we're ticking these off one by one.

1980s recipes

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.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

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.

Apple desserts

Whether baked into a bubbling crumble, caramelised in a puff-pastry tart or served in an all-American pie, apples are a classic filling for fruity desserts. Here are the recipes we keep coming back to.

Artists' Editions at Faux: Australia Series launch at Spence & Lyda

Australian artists Belinda Fox, James Gordon, Lucas Grogan and Marc Standing have launched a limited edition series of bone china dinnerware, now available exclusively at the Spence & Lyda showroom in Sydney.

The Artists' Editions Australia Series is a collaboration between the four designers (who are each represented by The Cat Street Gallery in Hong Kong) with Faux, a lifestyle company dedicated to marrying contemporary art with interiors.

"We want artists to gain exposure through other mediums, not normally associated with their art," said Faux co-founder Louis Papachristou, who joined guests from Hong Kong for the launch at Spence & Lyda, last week.

Each artist's collection spans four different china products: dinner plate, oval platter, large salad bowl; and medium-sized bowl. "This is our first Australian series," said Papachristou. "We've chosen four artists that, individually, are very different."

The designs feature everything from delicate lotus flowers and birds by printmaker Belinda Fox to monochrome watercolour illustrations of oysters and crustaceans by multi-medium artist James Gordon. A more traditional blue-and-white geometric design by textile artist Lucas Grogan and a striking red, pink and black garden scene by painter Marc Standing, complete the collection.

"The work is all decaled," Papachristou said. "We take the artists' work, photograph it, and then heat-transfer it onto the fine china. They're an edition of 80 pieces, so once the collection is gone, it's gone."

Fifteen per cent of the sale proceeds will go to launching Faux's new foundation, The Society for Artist Residencies, in Hong Kong.

"We're setting the program up so that established and emerging Australian artists can come to Hong Kong to produce new works in a new environment," said Papachristou.

"If we garner enough interest here with the Australia series, I hope we can repeat this with more artists in other parts of the world, too. The possibilities for cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary dialogue are endless."
