Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

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.

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.

All Star Yum Cha

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

Lemon tart

It's really important to seal the pastry well to prevent any seepage during cooking, and to trim the pastry soon after cooking. Let the tart cool in the tin before removing it, or it will crack.

Spelt cashew and broccoli bowl with yoghurt dressing

This nicely textured salad transports well, making it ideal for picnics or to take to barbecues. The broccoli can be kept raw and shaved on a mandolin, too.

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.

Bali's new wave of restaurants, hotels and bars

The restaurant and hotel scene on Australia's favourite holiday island has never been more exciting and Australian chefs, owners and restaurateurs are leading the charge, writes Samantha Coomber.

Shaved cabbage, fennel and ham salad


"Market Street Café is my local. I get my coffee there every morning on my way to work, and I often stop in for a salad for lunch. Their cabbage and local ham salad is my go-to lunch: simple and delicious. Any chance you might ask for the recipe?" Sally Jamieson, Mudgee, NSW

REQUEST A RECIPE
To request a recipe, write to Fare Exchange, Australian Gourmet Traveller, GPO Box 4088, Sydney, NSW 2001, or email fareexchange@bauer-media.com.au. Please include the restaurant's name and address or business card, as well as your name and address.

You'll need

2½ tsp fennel seeds 400 gm white cabbage (about ½ cabbage), thinly shaved 1 Spanish onion, thinly sliced 8 thin slices leg ham ½ cup coarsely torn flat-leaf parsley 1 tbsp each thyme, rosemary and finely chopped chives To serve: crusty sourdough bread   Cabernet vinegar vinaigrette 140 ml olive oil 60 ml (¼ cup) cabernet vinegar (see note) 1½ tsp Dijon mustard

Method

  • 01
  • For cabernet vinegar vinaigrette, whisk ingredients in a small bowl, season to taste and set aside.
  • 02
  • Dry-roast fennel seeds in a small frying pan (30 seconds), coarsely grind in a mortar and pestle and set aside.
  • 03
  • Combine cabbage, onion, ham, herbs and ground fennel in a large bowl, drizzle with cabernet vinegar vinaigrette, toss to combine, season to taste and serve with crusty bread.

Note  At the Market Street Café in Mudgee, chef Aaron Cole endeavours to use the best the region has on offer. This means the ham is free-range Ormiston, the fennel is wild and the herbs are picked from locals' gardens, with permission, of course. For this recipe he also uses Karabool olive oil and Robert Stein cabernet vinegar. Cabernet vinegar is available from select delicatessens and grocers. If it's unavailable, substitute red wine vinegar.
