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.

You'll need

10 baby King Edward potatoes For deep-frying: vegetable oil To serve: caviar (see note) and finely chopped chives   Whipped cod roe 8 slices (100gm) soft white sandwich bread, crusts removed, cut into 5cm squares 55 gm cod roe (see note) Juice of ½ lemon, plus extra for serving 1 golden shallot, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced 500 ml (2 cups) grapeseed oil

Method

  • 01
  • For whipped cod roe, soak bread in a bowl with 500ml warm water until soft (5 minutes), then gently squeeze out water and set aside. Blend bread, roe, lemon juice, shallot and garlic in a blender until smooth, then gradually pour in grapeseed oil in a steady stream, adding a little warm water if mixture becomes too thick. Pass through a fine sieve, and season to taste with lemon juice, sea salt and pepper. Refrigerate until required (it keeps for a day in a sealed container).
  • 02
  • Steam potatoes until tender (20-25 minutes), then, when cool enough to handle, halve them lengthways and scoop out most of the flesh with a spoon. Reserve skins; flesh can be reserved for mash or soup.
  • 03
  • Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan until 180C. Deep-fry potato skins until golden and crisp (5-6 minutes; be careful, hot oil will spit). Drain on absorbent paper and season with sea salt.
  • 04
  • Spoon whipped cod roe into potato skins, top with ½ tsp of caviar, sprinkle with chives and serve warm.
Note Caviar and cod roe (often sold as tarama roe) are available at select delicatessens and fishmongers.
