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.

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.

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.

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.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

"My favourite kitchen gizmo is my new ice-cream machine - could you print the recipe for the honey ice-cream and crumble at Magill Estate?"

You'll need

500 ml (2 cups) milk Scraped seeds of 1 vanilla bean 5 egg yolks 175 gm (½ cup) honey 250 ml (1 cup) thickened cream   Linseed wafers 55 gm (¼ cup) brown sugar 60 ml (¼ cup) strong espresso 110 gm (½ cup) linseeds   Walnut crumble 50 gm walnuts 70 gm (½ cup) cocoa nibs 1 tbsp butter 110 gm (½ cup) caster sugar 2 tbsp liquid glucose ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

Method

  • 01
  • Bring milk and vanilla seeds to just below the boil in a saucepan over medium heat, then remove from the heat. Whisk egg yolks with honey in a bowl until pale (2-3 minutes), then pour milk mixture over, whisking to combine. Return mixture to a clean saucepan and stir continuously over medium heat until mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon (10-12 minutes). Set aside to cool. Stir in cream and churn in an ice-cream machine, then freeze until firm. Makes 2 litres.
  • 02
  • For linseed wafers, preheat oven to 120C. Dissolve sugar in 125ml boiling water in a bowl, then add coffee and linseeds. Spread mixture on a tray lined with baking paper and dry in oven until crisp (40-50 minutes). Cool completely, then break into 8 pieces.
  • 03
  • For walnut crumble, to remove bitterness blanch walnuts 4 times, plunging into an ice bath between each and keeping the same water for blanching. Spread walnuts on a tray lined with baking paper and dry in oven (8-10 minutes). Dry-roast cocoa nibs in a small saucepan over medium heat until fragrant (5 minutes). Meanwhile, stir butter, sugar, glucose and 60ml water in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves, bring to the boil and cook, without stirring, until light-caramel (6-7 minutes), then add a pinch of salt and bicarbonate of soda, and mix well (careful, mixture will foam up). Add the cocoa nibs, cook for 1 minute, then add the walnuts. Pour mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper and cool completely. Process in a food processor to form a coarse, chunky crumble and store in an airtight container until required (it will keep for up to a week).
  • 04
  • To serve, place a little crumble on a plate, add a scoop of honey ice-cream and top with a shard of linseed wafer.
