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.

Melbourne's best late-night bars

As the shutters come down in other Australian capitals, Melbourne's vibrant nightlife is just hitting it's stride. Michael Harden burns the midnight oil at the city's best late-night bars and diners.

Method

  • 01
  • Cook lentils in a saucepan of boiling salted water until tender (25-30 minutes). Drain well and place in a large bowl.

  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C. Scatter hazelnuts on an oven tray and roast, shaking occasionally, until browned (6-8 minutes). Set aside to cool slightly, then rub with a tea towel to remove skins, coarsely chop and add to lentils.
  • 03
  • For hazelnut dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl, season to taste and pour onto warm lentils.
  • 04
  • Blanch broad beans and asparagus in separate saucepans until bright green (1 minute), drain, refresh and drain again. Peel broad beans and add to lentils. Halve asparagus and add to lentils. Add remaining ingredients, season to taste, toss to combine and serve warm or at room temperature.
Note At Alfred & Constance, the chefs use Mount Zero French-style fine green lentils and cabernet sauvignon vinegar; both are available from select grocers and delicatessens.
