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.

Fast autumn dinners

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

Roasted cauliflower salad with yoghurt dressing and almonds

The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

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.

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.

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.

Brooke Thorn stoneware

After 10 years as an interior designer, Brooke Thorn threw it all in to get her hands dirty. Fast-forward two years and she can be found working full-time behind a pottery wheel, throwing complete dinner sets by hand and dip-painting her stoneware with colours that range from peach to nectarine, teal to sky blue.

What prompted the career change?
I loved [interior design] but what I loved most was being on site, working with the tradies and watching what the joiners were doing.

Why did you choose clay as your medium?
I just fell in love with it. Being able to build up the skill to create the shapes that you want. There's an immense amount of satisfaction when you get to the stage that you can actually make what's in your head. I use quite a fattened glaze on most of the stuff I do, it's got this special quality where overlapping white with another colour makes it look like three colours.

How are your pieces best used?
People are drawn to certain colours. I like having little bits and pieces spread all across the table - some of the side bowls, maybe a platter, a couple of cups - but so it's not all uniform in colour. While each piece is dipped in a similar way, they all come out with a unique personality. Creating a personal colour palette is playful but still functional.
