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.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Melbourne's best late-night bars

Candied orange crostata


You'll need

225 gm block of shortcrust pastry 1 egg, beaten with 1 tbsp milk   Candied orange 2 oranges, cut into 5mm-thick slices 330 gm (1½ cups) caster sugar 160 gm (2/3 cup) light corn syrup 1 tbsp grappa   Almond filling 160 ml (2/3 cup) milk 3 pieces of orange rind 2 egg yolks 110 gm (½ cup) caster sugar 1½ tbsp plain flour 50 gm soft unsalted butter 20 ml (1 tbsp) grappa 40 gm (1/3 cup) almond meal

Method

  • 01
  • For candied orange, place orange slices in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, drain and repeat 7 times. Combine sugar, corn syrup and 80ml (1/3 cup) water in a large saucepan, stir over medium heat until dissolved and simmering. Add orange slices, bring to the boil, simmer over low heat until orange is translucent and syrup is thick (1-1½ hours). Remove from syrup and drain on wire racks in a single layer until cool. Reserve ¼ cup syrup, and add grappa, for brushing.
  • 02
  • For almond filling, bring milk and orange rind just to the boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk egg yolks and half the sugar in a bowl until thick, add flour and whisk to combine. Pour over milk mixture, whisk to combine, return to pan and whisk over medium heat until thick (2-3 minutes). Cool completely, remove rind. Beat butter and remaining sugar using an electric mixer until pale, add grappa, almond meal and cooled custard and beat to combine.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Roll out pastry to a 30cm round between 2 sheets of baking paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Spread almond filling over pastry, leaving a 4cm border, top with orange slices and fold over pastry edges, pleating as you go. Brush pastry with eggwash, then brush oranges with reserved syrup. Bake until golden (35-40 minutes). Cool on tray for 10 minutes, transfer to a cake rack and cool. Serve drizzled with remaining syrup.
