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.

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.

Fast autumn dinners

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

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.

Apple desserts

Whether baked into a bubbling crumble, caramelised in a puff-pastry tart or served in an all-American pie, apples are a classic filling for fruity desserts. Here are the recipes we keep coming back to.

Bodega's pork belly and bullhorn peppers


"Here's one from the first menu. Simplicity - soft, sticky, gelatinous pork inspired by white-cut chicken," say Abrahanowicz and Milgate.

You'll need

100 gm rock salt 1 kg piece boneless pork belly, skin removed 5 red bullhorn peppers Olive oil, for drizzling 70 ml extra-virgin olive oil 30 ml sherry vinegar 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced on a mandolin Sliced pickled guindilla chillies or other pickled green chillies, to serve (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Rub salt all over pork belly, cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours to season. Wipe excess salt from pork and place in a steamer basket over a large saucepan of simmering water and steam until very tender when a knife is inserted (2-2½ hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, heat a char-grill pan to high. Drizzle peppers with olive oil and grill, turning occasionally, until blackened and collapsed (18-20 minutes). Transfer to a bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap and stand to steam (20 minutes). Peel charred skin from peppers and open them up to remove seeds and stem. Slice lengthways, then layer peppers in a bowl with extra-virgin olive oil, vinegar and garlic, season with sea salt flakes, and stand to marinate at room temperature for 2 hours.
  • 03
  • To serve, arrange marinated peppers on serving plates, top with thickly sliced pork belly, drizzle with a little pepper marinade, season with sea salt flakes and scatter with sliced guindillas.

Pickled guindilla chillies are available at delicatessens such as Continental Deli in Newtown, Encasa Deli in Sydney and The Essential Ingredient (essentialingredient.com.au).
