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.

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.

Strawberry and rose petal terrines with watermelon granita


You'll need

250 gm (1 punnet) strawberries, hulled, thinly sliced widthways 4 organic white roses, petals only (see note)   Watermelon granita 50 gm caster sugar 1 tsp rosewater 400 ml strained watermelon juice   Strawberry jelly 250 gm (1 punnet) strawberries, hulled 55 gm (¼ cup) caster sugar 4 sheets (titanium strength) gelatine, softened in cold water

Method

  • 01
  • For watermelon granita, combine sugar, rosewater and 50ml water in a saucepan over medium heat, bring to the boil, then remove from heat and cool. Add watermelon juice, strain, then freeze in a shallow tray for 3 hours, using a fork to scrape frequently until crystals form.
  • 02
  • For strawberry jelly, juice strawberries in a juicer or process in a food processor until smooth, then strain through a fine sieve. Combine with sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Squeeze excess water from gelatine, add to pan, stir to dissolve, then strain.
  • 03
  • To assemble terrines, lightly grease four ¾ cup-capacity dariole moulds, pour 1 tbsp jelly mixture into each and refrigerate for 10 minutes or until set. Arrange enough strawberry slices on top to cover, pour another tablespoon of jelly mixture over and refrigerate for 10 minutes or until set. Top with rose petals and pour another tablespoon of jelly mixture over. Continue alternating, setting jelly each time, until jelly is used (you may not use all the strawberries and rose petals), then refrigerate for 2 hours or until jelly is completely set.
  • 04
  • To serve, dip terrines briefly in hot water, then invert onto plates. Serve with watermelon granita to the side.
Note Organic rose petals suitable for consumption are best sourced from local gardens. Most roses sold commercially have been sprayed with insecticide.

“I took my wife to Albury’s Sourcedining for our anniversary. We shared the most wonderful strawberry terrine served with watermelon granita. Would chef Jodie Jones part with the recipe?”
Mason McQuarrie, Wodonga, Vic
