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.

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.

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.

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.

Labne and pistachio cheesecake

The luscious silky texture of this tangy cheesecake makes it irresistible - the fact it's free of gluten and refined sugar is a bonus. We've topped ours with cherries, but berries would also work well. Start this recipe a day ahead to drain the yoghurt.

Glazed lamb ribs with corn salad


"This is a great way of using up secondary cuts, and it's one of the few times you can get away with using Coca-Cola in a marinade," says Fassnidge. "We use it because it works."

You'll need

1 bone in lamb breast (1.5 kg) 4 garlic cloves, smashed 4 thyme sprigs 2.5 litres vegetable oil, to cook lamb, plus extra if necessary   Cola marinade 500 ml (2 cups) cola 250 ml (1 cup) tomato sauce 250 ml (1 cup) barbecue sauce 50 ml red wine vinegar 50 ml soy sauce 50 gm ginger, finely chopped 2 tbsp Dijon mustard 4 star anise 2 cinnamon quills 2 long red chillies, coarsely chopped   Corn salad 2 tbsp vegetable oil 4 corn cobs, kernels removed 1 garlic clove, crushed 1 rosemary sprig 1/3 cup mint, coarsely chopped ½ cup flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped 3 golden shallots, thinly sliced into rings 2 tbsp mild-flavoured extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For cola marinade, bring ingredients to boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until a sticky glaze forms (25-30 minutes), remove chilli, cinnamon and star anise (discard), set aside to cool.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 90C. Combine lamb with garlic and thyme in a large, deep ovenproof dish that fits lamb snugly in a single layer. Pour over oil to cover completely, then cover with foil and confit in oven until lamb is very tender (4 hours). Set aside and cool to room temperature.
  • 03
  • Remove meat from oil in one piece (discard oil). Keeping the bones in place, remove the white cartilage that runs across the meat (discard). Refrigerate lamb pressed between 2 pieces of baking paper and 2 trays weighted with food cans (1 hour). When cold, cut into individual ribs.
  • 04
  • Heat cola glaze in a large non-stick frying pan over low heat, add ribs and turn occasionally until heated through and glazed (4-5 minutes).
  • 05
  • Meanwhile, for corn salad, heat vegetable oil in a saucepan over high heat, add kernels along with garlic and rosemary, and season to taste, then cover and cook until slightly golden (2-4 minutes). Transfer to a bowl and toss with mint, parsley and shallots, then dress with olive oil and serve with lamb ribs.
