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

Recipes with zucchini

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.

Roasted capsicum and tomato salad with cumin and sherry vinegar (Asadillo)


You'll need

5 red capsicums 1 large onion, unpeeled 1 head garlic 2 tbsp olive oil 4 tomatoes, peeled, seeds removed, cut into wedges 1 handful coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil 75 ml sherry vinegar 1 tbsp cumin seeds, roasted and ground

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Place capsicums, onion and garlic in a large roasting pan, scatter with sea salt and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 40 minutes or until brown and tender. Transfer capsicum and garlic to a bowl, reserving cooking juices, then return onion to oven and cook for another 30 minutes or until very soft.
  • 02
  • When capsicum is cool enough to handle, peel and remove seeds, discarding skins and seeds and reserving cooking juices. Tear capsicum into broad strips, using your fingers, and place in a separate bowl. Cut the top off the head of garlic and squeeze garlic into the bowl with the capsicum. Add tomato and stir to combine, letting the residual warmth from the capsicum soften the tomato just a little.
  • 03
  • When onion is cool enough to handle, remove skin and discard, then cut onion into wedges and stir through capsicum mixture.
  • 04
  • Measure out 100ml of reserved capsicum cooking juices and add to capsicum mixture with remaining ingredients, mix thoroughly and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately or refrigerate for 3-4 days in an airtight container and bring to room temperature before serving.

"This is a dish which truly reflects my family's culinary background, combining tomatoes and capsicums from the New World, Moorish spices and olive oil and sherry from the land. Mum's made this dish ever since I can remember. There'd be a bowl waiting at home in the fridge when we came home from school or a dish on the table whenever we had a party - and that was often. Asadillo has been with MoVida since the first day we opened in the old pub in North Melbourne. It is a bright refreshing salad of velvety roasted red capsicum served with softened tomatoes and a spicy cumin dressing.

It can either be served warm, shortly after the capsicums have been baked, or stored in the fridge for a few days for the flavours to mingle and develop." - Frank Camorra, MoVida
