Fast autumn dinners

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

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.

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.

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.

Lemon tart

It's really important to seal the pastry well to prevent any seepage during cooking, and to trim the pastry soon after cooking. Let the tart cool in the tin before removing it, or it will crack.

Spelt cashew and broccoli bowl with yoghurt dressing

This nicely textured salad transports well, making it ideal for picnics or to take to barbecues. The broccoli can be kept raw and shaved on a mandolin, too.

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.

Bali's new wave of restaurants, hotels and bars

The restaurant and hotel scene on Australia's favourite holiday island has never been more exciting and Australian chefs, owners and restaurateurs are leading the charge, writes Samantha Coomber.

You'll need

60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 1 beef shin (about 2.2kg), split (see note) 5 garlic cloves, peeled 1 cup (about 1 bunch) oregano 2 thyme sprigs 250 ml dry white wine 1 litre (4 cups) veal stock or brown chicken stock   Romesco 1 red capsicum 3 ripe Roma tomatoes, halved lengthways ½ Spanish onion 1 garlic clove ¼ long red chilli, seeds removed 50 ml olive oil 50 gm (1/3 cup) blanched almonds 25 gm toasted sourdough (1 slice), crustless 2½ tsp sherry vinegar ¼ tsp smoked paprika   Kohlrabi salad 1 kohlrabi (about 500gm), peeled, cut into julienne and soaked in iced water for 10 minutes to crisp 3 spring onions, thinly sliced 2 tbsp thinly sliced mint 2 tbsp thinly sliced flat-leaf parsley Juice of 1 lemon 50 ml olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For romesco, preheat oven to 180C. Roast capsicum in an oven dish, turning occasionally, until charred and softened (40-50 minutes). Cool for 10 minutes, then discard seeds, peel, tear flesh into large strips and transfer to a roasting pan lined with baking paper along with tomatoes, onion, garlic and chilli. Drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil, season to taste and roast until onion is soft and juices have reduced (1¼-1½ hours). Cool for 5 minutes, then peel tomatoes and onion. Meanwhile, roast almonds on an oven tray until golden (6-8 minutes). Transfer to a food processor along with capsicum mixture, toasted bread, vinegar, paprika and remaining oil, and pulse until coarsely chopped. Season to taste, cover and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Reduce oven to 160C. Heat oil in a large flameproof roasting pan over medium-high heat. Season shin to taste, add to pan and sear until browned all over without marrow touching pan directly (tilt shin against side of pan; 3-4 minutes each side). Add garlic and herbs to pan and fry until garlic starts to turn golden (1-2 minutes). Add wine and stock, bring to a simmer, cover with baking paper and foil, and braise in oven until meat is very tender and marrow is partially rendered (3½-4 hours).
  • 03
  • Increase oven to 200C. Fill the cavity of each half shin with a quarter of the romesco sauce, baste the meat with pan juices and roast until romesco is golden brown (10-15 minutes).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for kohlrabi salad, toss ingredients together in a bowl and season to taste.
  • 05
  • Spoon pan juices over beef shin and serve with kohlrabi salad and extra romesco.

Beef shin may need to be ordered ahead; ask your butcher to split lengthways through bone for two even halves.
