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

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.

Strawberry syllabub with red wine and pepper jelly


You'll need

300 gm strawberries, hulled, sliced 1 tbsp strawberry liqueur (optional) 1 tbsp pure icing sugar, sieved 1 tsp aged balsamic vinegar 1 tsp finely grated lemon rind 150 ml pouring cream   Red wine and pepper jelly 500 ml pinot noir 150 gm strawberries, hulled, sliced 50 gm caster sugar 3 titanium-strength gelatine leaves, softened in cold water for 5 minutes 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Method

  • 01
  • For red wine and pepper jelly, bring wine, strawberries and sugar just to the simmer in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar, then set aside to infuse (1 hour). Strain through a fine sieve into a clean saucepan (reserve strawberries) and bring to the simmer over medium-high heat. Squeeze water from gelatine, add to pan, stir to dissolve, then remove from heat and set aside to cool. Pour into a deep 14cm x 18cm plastic container, refrigerate until almost set (45 minutes-1 hour), stir in pepper and refrigerate until set (15-20 minutes).
  • 02
  • Pulse 150gm strawberries and reserved wine-steeped strawberries in a food processor until coarsely chopped, add strawberry liqueur, icing sugar, balsamic vinegar and lemon rind, stir to combine, add half the remaining strawberries and stir to combine. Whisk cream in a separate bowl to soft peaks, then fold through strawberry mixture.
  • 03
  • Break jelly into bite-sized pieces with a spoon, divide among six 300ml glasses, spoon strawberry cream over, top with remaining strawberries and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper and serve.

"Syllabub is an old English dessert; it's essentially wine and fruit whipped with cream," says Biron. "In this version I've included black pepper and balsamic vinegar, which are quite commonly used with strawberries in Italian recipes. The Italians love strawberries with balsamic vinegar; the spice accentuates the flavour of the strawberries."
