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

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.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Pork pizza with provolone and peach and rocket salad


You'll need

1 fennel bulb, coarsely chopped 8 fresh bay leaves 2 tbsp black peppercorns 5 star anise 400 gm piece boneless pork shoulder 1 litre (4 cups) olive oil For brushing: extra-virgin olive oil 120 gm provolone, thinly sliced   Pizza dough 1 tbsp dried yeast 500 gm (22/3 cup) “00” flour 1 tbsp olive oil   Peach and rocket salad 30 ml white wine vinegar 1 tbsp leatherwood honey 1 tbsp olive oil 2 cups (loosely packed) baby rocket 1 yellow peach, sliced into wedges 20 gm walnuts

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 230C. Combine fennel, bay leaves and spices in a casserole large enough to fit pork snugly, add pork, skin-side up, cover with olive oil, season to taste and roast for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 160C and roast until meat is very tender (1½-2 hours), then cool in oil. When cool enough to handle, remove from oil (discard oil), coarsely shred meat (discard skin and sinew) and set aside.
  • 02
  • For pizza dough, combine yeast and 250ml lukewarm water in a small bowl and set aside until beginning to foam (7-10 minutes). Meanwhile, combine flour and 1 tbsp sea salt in a large bowl, form a well in centre and add yeast mixture and olive oil. Stir to combine, then knead until smooth (5-6 minutes). Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and set aside in a warm place until doubled in size (1-1½ hours).
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 220C. Knock back dough, divide into four pieces, knead into balls, cover with a tea towel and set aside to rest (20 minutes), then roll on a lightly floured surface to 5mm thick. Transfer to oiled oven trays, brush with extra-virgin olive oil, scatter over half the cheese, then the pork, then remaining cheese. Bake in batches until golden and crisp (10-15 minutes).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for peach and rocket salad, whisk vinegar, honey and olive oil in a large bowl, season to taste. Add remaining ingredients, toss to combine, scatter over pizza and serve hot.
This recipe is from the January 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“At Ut Si Café in Perth, Tasmania I enjoyed a pork pizza topped with peach and rocket salad. The tender, slow-cooked pork was a highlight. Would the chef share the recipe?”
Anna Conway, Launceston, Tas
