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.

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.

All Star Yum Cha

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

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.

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.

Ricotta and pea frittatas


You'll need

400 gm podded peas (about 1.2kg unpodded) 120 ml olive oil ½ onion, finely chopped 12 eggs 90 gm finely grated parmesan 180 gm ricotta, coarsely crumbled 1 cup (loosely packed) basil leaves To serve: crusty white bread

Method

  • 01
  • Blanch peas until just tender (1-2 minutes). Drain, refresh and drain again. Set aside.
  • 02
  • Heat 30ml oil in a 26cm-diameter (top measurement) non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden (5-6 minutes). Add peas and cook, covered with a lid, over low heat until peas are tender (4-5 minutes). Transfer to a bowl and wipe out pan with absorbent paper.
  • 03
  • Whisk 2 eggs in a bowl, add one-sixth each of parmesan and pea mixture, season to taste and stir to combine. Heat 15ml oil in a frying pan over medium high heat, add egg mixture and swirl pan to coat base evenly and cook until egg starts to set and turn golden around edges. Scatter over one-sixth of ricotta, tear some basil leaves on top and cook until frittata just starts to set and edges begin to turn golden (1-2 minutes). Slide onto a plate, invert back into pan, then cook until just cooked through (20-30 seconds). Transfer to a plate, wipe out pan and repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve frittatas with crusty white bread.

Rosa Mitchell, a great cook and friend of mine, taught me that frittatas could be cooked thin in a frying pan, whether or not you use fresh peas or frozen (both are good). I love them in a sandwich with prosciutto, rocket and parmesan, or you can use ingredients such as braised chicory or spinach.
