Seven ways to do dumplings

Dumplings may be bite-sized, but they pack a flavourful punch. Here are seven mouth-watering recipes, from Korean mandu to classic Chinese-style steamed dumplings.

Best feta recipes

Feta's tang livens up all sorts of dishes, from beef shin rigatoni or blistered kale ribs to Greek-style roast lamb neck.

Recipes with zucchini

Whether served raw with olive oil, grated with fresh herbs, or pan-fried in a pancake - zucchini is a must-have ingredient when it comes to spring cooking.

Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Melbourne's best late-night bars

As the shutters come down in other Australian capitals, Melbourne's vibrant nightlife is just hitting it's stride. Michael Harden burns the midnight oil at the city's best late-night bars and diners.

Teochew steamed fish


You'll need

1 (about 1kg) whole pomfret, barramundi, threadfin or coral trout, cleaned 100 gm salted mustard greens, soaked in water for 10 mins, drained and thinly sliced 3 salted plums, gently squeezed 4 cm piece of ginger, cut into fine julienne 2 long red chillies, thinly sliced 125 ml (½ cup) chicken stock or water 1 tbsp light soy sauce ½ tsp white sugar 60 ml (¼ cup) vegetable oil 3-4 golden shallots, thinly sliced 1 green onion, thinly sliced diagonally To garnish: coriander sprigs

Method

  • 01
  • Season fish to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and place on a heatproof plate small enough to fit inside a large steamer basket. Combine mustard greens, salted plums, ginger and chilli and scatter over fish. Combine stock with soy sauce and sugar and drizzle over fish. Place plate in a steamer basket placed over a saucepan of boiling water, cover with lid and steam for 12-15 minutes or until fish is cooked through.
  • 02
  • Just before serving, heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat and sauté shallot until lightly golden. Remove fish, pour hot oil and shallot over, scatter with green onion and coriander and serve.

This dish owes its origins to the Teochew (also called Chiu Chow) people, a sub-Cantonese group from Guangdong province. It’s widely enjoyed in China, although it is not often seen on menus here. Quick to cook, the recipe requires salted plums and salted mustard greens, available from Asian grocers. It’s a great Chinese New Year dish because a whole fish symbolises the beginning and end of a story.
