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.

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.

All Star Yum Cha

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

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.

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.

Chicken cacciatore


"We like to use two types of salami: one is hot and the other is milder and imparts a nice fennel flavour into the dish," says Angel Fernandez. "If you can't get the ripest tomatoes, use tinned San Marzano." Cipro orders cacciatore salami from Feather and Bone and fennel and chilli salami from Pino's Dolce Vita.

You'll need

70 ml olive oil 6 chicken thighs 150 gm cacciatore salami, thickly sliced 150 gm fennel and chilli salami, thickly sliced 150 gm prosciutto ends (see note), cut into rough 3cm pieces 6 salad onions, halved 12 garlic cloves, unpeeled 9 very ripe vine-ripened tomatoes, scored 250 ml (1 cup) chicken stock 8 thyme sprigs 200 gm Sicilian green olives 1 8cm piece parmesan rind, optional ½ cup (loosely packed) each basil and flat-leaf parsley To serve: extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat, add chicken in batches and fry, turning occasionally, until golden (2-4 minutes). Place chicken skin-side up in a roasting pan to fit snugly and set aside. Add salami, prosciutto, onions and garlic to pan, increase heat to medium-high and fry until golden (2-4 minutes), then scatter over chicken.
  • 02
  • Blanch tomatoes (20-40 seconds), peel, discard seeds, roughly dice and place in a bowl. Add stock, thyme, olives and parmesan rind, season to taste, then pour mixture over chicken. Cover with foil and bake until chicken is tender (40-50 minutes).
  • 03
  • Divide among serving bowls, scatter with herbs, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and serve.

Note Prosciutto ends are available from select delicatessens.
