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.

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.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

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.

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.

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.

"My mum's lamb meatballs were a favourite of ours growing up," says Durkhanai Ayubi. "It was only as an adult that I realised all the lovely flavours that went into them. These are not your average meatballs - the spices and fresh herbs make them really aromatic."

You'll need

1 large onion, quartered 2 long red chillies, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 cup (firmly packed) coriander, plus extra chopped to serve 1 kg minced lamb ½ tsp ground cloves   Tomato sauce 150 ml vegetable oil 4 tomatoes, diced 1 tsp ground turmeric 1 small onion, finely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Process onion, chilllies, garlic and coriander in a food processor until coarsely chopped, transfer to a bowl and add lamb, cloves, ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper and 2 tsp sea salt. Mix well with your hands until the mixture is slightly sticky and well combined, then roll into ping-pong-sized balls and set aside.
  • 02
  • For tomato sauce, heat 100ml oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add three-quarters of the tomato, the turmeric, 1 tsp sea salt and 500ml water. Bring to the boil, add meatballs, reduce heat to medium and simmer until sauce thickens (15-20 minutes). Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a separate saucepan over medium-high heat, add onion and fry until just tender (2-3 minutes). Add remaining tomato and cook until just tender (2-3 minutes). Spoon over meatballs in sauce and serve hot scattered with extra coriander.
