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.

Recipes with zucchini

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.

Porchetta with rosemary focaccia (porchetta stile di Ariccia servite con focaccia al romarino)


You'll need

2 kg boneless pork belly (see note) 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 3 fresh bay leaves 2 rosemary sprigs, finely chopped 10 black peppercorns, coarsely crushed in mortar and pestle 2 tbsp sea salt 50 ml olive oil 250 ml white wine   Rosemary focaccia 350 gm “00” flour 10 gm dried yeast 25 ml olive oil Pinch caster sugar 2 tbsp rosemary leaves For scattering: sea salt flakes

Method

  • 01
  • For rosemary focaccia, preheat oven to 200C. Combine flour and yeast in a bowl, make a well in the centre, add oil, 250ml lukewarm water and a pinch each of salt and sugar, mix well to combine. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth (5-7 minutes). Press into a lightly oiled 30cm x 20cm tray, cover and stand until slightly risen (35-40 minutes). Scatter with rosemary and sea salt, form indentations at intervals with fingertips and bake until golden (25-30 minutes). Cool for 5 minutes in tray, remove and cool completely on a wire rack, then slice foccacia into even pieces.
  • 02
  • Reduce oven to 140C. Place pork belly skin-side up on a work surface with longest side facing you, then score skin in a fine cross-hatch pattern. Combine garlic, herbs and crushed pepper with half the sea salt in a bowl then spread evenly over pork belly. Turn pork belly over, roll away from you to form a cylinder with skin-side out, then tie at intervals with butcher’s twine. Drizzle with oil and scatter with remaining sea salt, massaging into the incisions. Place in a deep roasting pan and roast for 1 hour. Increase temperature to 160C, cook for 30 minutes, then increase temperature to 180C for another 30 minutes. Pour over wine and baste occasionally until cooked through (30 minutes). Remove from oven and rest. Remove twine, thickly slice and serve immediately with rosemary foccacia.
Note Use Berkshire pork belly where available, with the loin attached.

"My family's favourite dish at Svago so far has been the roast pork, but I haven't been able to replicate it at home. What's the secret?"
Graham Wheeler, Box Hill, Vic
