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.

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.

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.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

The best-ever potato scallops


You'll need

800 ml pouring cream 2 tbsp truffle oil To taste: sea salt flakes and 30 turns of white pepper mill 3 large potatoes, preferably King Edwards (200gm each), washed, ends cut off, sliced 1cm thick For deep-frying: vegetable oil   Batter 100 gm plain flour 100 gm cornflour 1¼ tbsp baking powder 200 ml sparkling mineral water

Method

  • 01
  • For batter, mix dry ingredients together, then make a well and slowly whisk in the mineral water until you have a thick, smooth batter. Cover and set aside.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 230C. Bring cream to the boil in a large saucepan, stirring occasionally. Take off the heat, then add truffle oil and season to taste with sea salt and white pepper. Line a 26cm x 20cm x 6cm baking tray with baking paper, including the sides, then pour in the cream mixture. Arrange potato slices in the tray in a single layer, then cover with baking paper and foil. Pierce 5 holes in the foil, then bake until just tender but still firm (25-30 minutes; when tested with a skewer the potato should give a bit of resistence). Leave to cool in the liquid (1 hour). Once cool, carefully remove potato from the cream and place on a tray. (Strain the cream mixture and reserve for a rainy day – maybe use the cream to cook and mash potatoes in.)
  • 03
  • Heat oil to 160C in a deepfryer. If you’re feeling flush, buy some winter truffles, thinly slice them and place a couple of slices on each potato scallop. Otherwise just dip the potato slices in the batter, shaking off excess, and deep-fry in batches, turning occasionally, until golden (2-3 minutes). Sprinkle with salt and serve straight away.
