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.

Onion and sour cream thin-baked slice


"This is from my grandmother's recipe book," says Boetz. "It's called zwiebelkuchen. It's great with a glass of riesling and is traditionally eaten at the new-season wine festival in Germany."

You'll need

250 gm (1 cups) plain flour 150 gm unsalted butter, chilled, diced 1 egg 1½ tbsp sour cream   Onion and sour cream filling 70 gm speck, diced 350 gm white onions (about 3 onions), thinly sliced 30 gm unsalted butter, diced 350 gm sour cream 2 eggs 1 tbsp plain flour 70 gm Gruyère, coarsely grated To taste: sweet paprika

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 160C. Process flour and 2 tsp sea salt in a food processor to combine, add butter and process until sandy. Add egg and sour cream, pulse until mixture forms a ball, then press evenly into a 20cm x 30cm oven tray lined with baking paper. Refrigerate to rest while you make the onion and sour cream filling.
  • 02
  • For onion and sour cream filling, cook speck in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until just crisp but not coloured (4-5 minutes). Add onion and butter and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent (15-20 minutes). Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool. Whisk sour cream and eggs in a separate bowl to combine, whisk in flour, then Gruyère and season to taste. Fold into onion mixture and season to taste with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and sweet paprika.
  • 03
  • Spoon filling evenly over pastry and bake until golden and set (30-40 minutes). Cool slightly, then cut into rectangles and serve warm or at room temperature.
