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.

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.

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.

Maltagliati di pane con calamari


You'll need

1 tbsp olive oil 5 (about 500gm) baby calamari, cleaned, washed and cut into 2cm pieces and tentacles halved 1 bunch of green onions (about 12), trimmed and cut into 3cm lengths 3 hearts of radicchio, leaves coarsely torn 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 200 ml dry white wine   Maltagliati di pane 1 cup (150gm) plain flour 100 gm fresh fine breadcrumbs cups (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped 2 55gm eggs, lightly whisked

Method

  • 01
  • For maltagliati di pane, combine flour, breadcrumbs and parsley on a work surface. Make a well in the centre, add eggs and a pinch of salt and, using a fork, gradually incorporate flour and eggs. Bring dough together and knead until smooth (3-5 minutes). Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour (dough will be sticky). Using a pasta machine at the widest setting, liberally flour dough and feed through the rollers, folding once or twice until the dough is smooth. Reduce settings notch by notch, feeding and rolling dough until it reaches the second last notch and is 2mm thick. Using a crinkle-cut pastry wheel, cut pasta into 4-5cm rough diamond shapes. Place on a tray between layers of baking paper dusted lightly with flour. Rest for 2 hours at room temperature.
  • 02
  • Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al dente (3-5 minutes). Drain, reserving ¼ cup of cooking liquid.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a frying pan over high heat until very hot. Add calamari and sauté until starting to curl and turning opaque (1 minute). Add green onion, radicchio and garlic and cook, stirring, until radicchio starts to wilt (2-3 minutes). Add white wine and cook until reduced by a third (2 minutes). Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add pasta and toss to combine, adjusting sauce consistency with a little reserved pasta liquid if necessary. Season to taste, then serve immediately.

“My husband and I went to Café di Stasio in St Kilda recently and had a great night out. I really enjoyed the maltagliati di pane con calamari. Would Ronnie di Stasio be willing to share the recipe?”
Yvonne Hendry, Prahran, Vic
