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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Gnocco fritto with prosciutto di San Daniele


"Berta's deep-fried gnocco fritto is very unusual, but it works so well. I would love to make it for my friends."

You'll need

155 ml milk 5 gm dried yeast 340 gm (2¼ cups) plain flour, plus extra for dusting 30 gm softened butter, coarsely chopped For deep-frying: vegetable oil 200 gm thinly sliced San Daniele prosciutto

Method

  • 01
  • Heat milk in a small saucepan until just lukewarm, add yeast and mix until it dissolves, then set aside. Pulse the flour, butter and a large pinch of salt in a food processor until just combined (30 seconds). Add milk mixture and pulse until a soft dough forms (30 seconds). Turn out onto a lightly floured bench and knead lightly until smooth (5-7 minutes). Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel and set aside until doubled in size (45 minutes to 1 hour).
  • 02
  • Turn dough out onto a very lightly floured surface, divide in half and, working with a piece at a time, roll to 5mm thick with a rolling pin. Roll through a pasta machine on widest setting, then fold it over and feed it through again. Continue to feed through the rollers, reducing settings by a notch at a time, until dough is about 2mm thick. Using a crinkle cutter or knife, cut dough into 8cm squares and set aside on trays lined with baking paper and lightly dusted with flour. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate to rest (1 hour).
  • 03
  • Heat oil in a frying pan to 180C. Gently lower gnocco fritto into the oil in batches (be careful, hot oil will spit) and turnover a few times until they just start to colour (2-3 minutes). Drain well on absorbent paper and repeat with remaining dough. Serve warm with prosciutto or other Italian cured meats.

Note Gnocco fritto are fried, light dough puffs from the Emilia-Romagna region that are eaten with cured meats and cheese. Berta chef O Tama Carey says once the dough is rolled and cut, it can be frozen for later use.
