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

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.

Strawberry frangipane tartlets with sheep’s milk yoghurt sorbet


You'll need

90 gm (¼ cup) strawberry jam, thinned with water and strained, plus extra to serve 1 kg strawberries (4 punnets)   Yoghurt sorbet 350 ml milk 150 gm caster sugar 75 gm liquid glucose 500 gm sheep’s milk yoghurt 1 lemon, juice only   Sweet pastry 180 gm unsalted butter, at room temperature 40 gm pure icing sugar, sifted 2 egg yolks 250 gm plain flour   Frangipane 125 gm icing sugar, sifted 125 gm almond meal 125 gm unsalted butter, at room temperature 2 eggs 1 egg yolk 25 gm plain flour 25 ml amaretto (optional)

Method

  • 01
  • For yoghurt sorbet, combine milk, sugar and glucose in a saucepan and bring to the boil over medium-high heat. Set aside to cool, whisk in yoghurt and lemon juice, then refrigerate to cool completely. Freeze in an ice-cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions. Sorbet is best churned 1 hour before serving.
  • 02
  • For sweet pastry, beat butter in an electric mixer until even in texture (3-5 minutes). Add icing sugar and mix to just combine. Add egg yolks and 25ml water and mix to combine. Sift flour onto a work surface and make a well in the centre. Add butter mixture to well and gradually work in flour to form a dough. Knead several times with the heel of your hand until smooth. Refrigerate until firm (3-4 hours). Roll pastry on a floured surface to 5mm thick and use to line six 12cm-diameter tart tins or one 20cm-diameter tart tin. Refrigerate until firm (2-3 hours).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C. Using foil, blind bake tartlets until golden (20-25 minutes). Remove foil and set aside.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for frangipane, combine icing sugar and almond meal in a bowl. Set aside. Beat butter in an electric mixer until fluffy (3-5 minutes). Add almond mixture and mix well to combine. Add eggs and yolk, then flour and amaretto and mix to combine. Fill pastry shells with frangipane to 5mm from top (there may be some left over). Bake until golden and centre springs back when lightly touched (10-12 minutes; time may vary for 20cm tart). Allow to cool, then brush with jam.
  • 05
  • Thinly slice strawberries lengthways, horizontally or scoop into various sized balls with assorted melon ballers, then divide among tartlets. Drizzle with extra jam, dust with icing sugar and serve with yoghurt sorbet.

“My wife and I had a rare night out at Bistro Guillaume in Melbourne, and the strawberry tartlet with yoghurt sorbet was a real show-stopper. Would you please ask Bistro Guillaume pastry chef Philippa Sibley for the recipe?”
Patrick Manning, Balmain, NSW
