Seven ways to do dumplings

Dumplings may be bite-sized, but they pack a flavourful punch. Here are seven mouth-watering recipes, from Korean mandu to classic Chinese-style steamed dumplings.

Best feta recipes

Feta's tang livens up all sorts of dishes, from beef shin rigatoni or blistered kale ribs to Greek-style roast lamb neck.

Recipes with zucchini

Whether served raw with olive oil, grated with fresh herbs, or pan-fried in a pancake - zucchini is a must-have ingredient when it comes to spring cooking.

Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Chargrilled prawns with salmorejo and pancetta


You'll need

1 egg, at room temperature 12 green king prawns, peeled, head and tails intact, cleaned 1 garlic clove, crushed with a mortar and pestle ¼ cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped ½ lemon, juice only 1 tbsp olive oil 4 thin slices of pancetta   Salmorejo 200 gm very ripe vine-ripened tomatoes, coarsely chopped 1 small garlic clove, crushed 50 gm crustless two-day-old bread, coarsely chopped 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

Method

  • 01
  • For salmorejo, process tomato and garlic in a food processor until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve, discarding solids. Place bread in food processor, add tomato juice and pulse to combine, then rest for 15 minutes. Season to taste with sea salt. With motor running, gradually add olive oil and 40ml chilled water and process until mixture is smooth and velvety. Set aside.
  • 02
  • Cook egg in a saucepan of boiling water until hard boiled (7-9 minutes). Cool under running water, peel, coarsely chop, place in a bowl and refrigerate until needed.
  • 03
  • Combine prawns, garlic, 1 tsp parsley, lemon juice and olive oil in a bowl. Season to taste and set aside.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, preheat a grill on high heat. Place pancetta on a lightly greased oven tray and grill until crisp and golden (3-5 minutes each side). Cool, then crumble.
  • 05
  • Heat a barbecue or chargrill plate on high. Cook prawns, turning once, until just cooked through (2-3 minutes each side). Spoon salmorejo evenly into 4 serving dishes, top with 3 prawns and scatter chopped egg, crumbled pancetta and remaining parsley over. Drizzle with olive oil and serve immediately.

“Loved the prawn tapa with chopped egg and pancetta at Melbourne’s Añada. Would Jesse Gerner be willing to share the recipe?”
John Conway, Albert Park, Vic
