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.

Fast autumn dinners

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

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.

Savoury tarts

Will your next baking project be a flaky puff pastry with pumpkin, goat's curd and thyme, or a classic bacon and Stilton tart? As autumn settles in, we're ticking these off one by one.

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.

1980s recipes

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.

Labne and pistachio cheesecake

The luscious silky texture of this tangy cheesecake makes it irresistible - the fact it's free of gluten and refined sugar is a bonus. We've topped ours with cherries, but berries would also work well. Start this recipe a day ahead to drain the yoghurt.

  • For Russian salad, cook eggs in a saucepan of boiling water until soft-boiled (6-7 minutes). Cool under running water, peel, quarter and set aside. Scrub potatoes, place in a saucepan of cold salted water, bring to the boil and cook until tender (15-17 minutes), cool, peel and cut into 1.5cm dice. Cook carrot in a saucepan of boiling salted water until just tender (10-12 minutes), cool and cut into 1.5cm pieces. Blanch peas in a saucepan of boiling salted water until bright green (1 minute), refresh and drain. Combine mayonnaise and vinegar in a large bowl, season to taste and stir until smooth. Add all ingredients and toss to combine.
