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.

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.

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.

Kingfish, ponzu and radish


"We have a kitchen garden in the vineyard and we grow various radishes," says Emma McCaskill. "We plant each garden bed at different times - allowing some of the radishes to go to seed and some to go to flower, using them at various stages for this dish." Begin this recipe a day ahead to make the ponzu.

You'll need

200 gm sashimi-grade kingfish loin and belly, cleaned, thinly sliced 3-4 assorted radishes (such as purple plum, Munich beer, fireball, rat-tail and Spanish black), thinly shaved on a mandolin For drizzling: extra-virgin olive oil 4 pinches of freeze-dried yuzu juice flakes (see note) 8 baby tips of wild watercress or any leaf from the mustard-greens family 6 radish flowers or other edible flowers   Ponzu 110 gm daikon (about ¼ small), peeled and coarsely chopped Finely grated rind of lemon 1½ tbsp soy sauce 1½ tbsp tamari 1 tbsp sake 1 tbsp strained lemon juice Pinch of togarashi (see note) 3 tsp finely chopped chives

Method

  • 01
  • For ponzu, blend daikon in a food processor until smooth (2-3 minutes). Add remaining ingredients except chives and refrigerate overnight for flavours to develop. Add chives, and stir ponzu well before using.
  • 02
  • Arrange sashimi in circles on serving plates, drizzle 3 tsp ponzu over each and lightly season with salt. Season radishes with oil and salt, and arrange over kingfish, scatter with yuzu, garnish with watercress and flowers and serve.

Note McCaskill and Huggins use freeze-dried yuzu juice flakes from Fresh As. Fresh As products can also be ordered from The Essential Ingredient. Togarashi, a spice blend, is available from Japanese grocery shops and some health-food shops.
