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.

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.

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.

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.

You'll need

2 tbsp olive oil 1.2 kg oxtail, trimmed and cut into 5cm portions 1.5 litres (6 cups) beef stock 100 ml each Chinkiang black vinegar and Pun Chun sweet vinegar (see note) 2 each star anise and cinnamon quill 1 piece of orange peel 750 gm fresh lasagne sheets, torn 50 gm butter, chopped 1 bunch chives, finely chopped 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 140C. Heat olive oil in a casserole over medium-high heat and sear oxtail in batches until golden brown on all sides. Return all oxtail to pan, add beef stock, bring to a simmer, then cover pan and place in oven until meat is falling off the bone (2½ -3½ hours, depending on size). Strain, reserving oxtail and returning liquid to casserole, then add vinegars, spices and orange peel. Heat over medium-high heat until reduced by about three-quarters (20-25 minutes), then strain and discard solids. Meanwhile, shred meat from bone, add to stock and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Cook pasta in plenty of salted boiling water until al dente, add to meat mixture along with butter and toss to combine. Divide among plates, scatter with chives and sesame seeds and serve.

Note Chinkiang vinegar, a Chinese black rice vinegar, and Pun Chun sweet vinegar are available from Asian grocers.
