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.

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.

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.

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.

Labne and pistachio cheesecake

The luscious silky texture of this tangy cheesecake makes it irresistible - the fact it's free of gluten and refined sugar is a bonus. We've topped ours with cherries, but berries would also work well. Start this recipe a day ahead to drain the yoghurt.

Breakfast risotto with poached rhubarb


You'll need

4 egg yolks 80 gm caster sugar 1 litre (4 cups) milk 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped 20 gm butter 300 gm (1½ cups) carnaroli rice 40 ml dessert wine To serve: natural yoghurt (optional)   Poached rhubarb 220 gm caster sugar 2 mandarins, juice only 1 lemon, thinly peeled rind and juice only 200 gm rhubarb stalks (about 1/3 bunch), halved widthways, thinly sliced lengthways on a mandolin

Method

  • 01
  • For poached rhubarb, combine sugar, juices, peel and 250ml water in a saucepan over medium heat, stir until sugar dissolves, increase heat to high, bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, simmer to infuse (6-8 minutes), add rhubarb, cook until tender (1 minute). Remove from heat, set aside.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, whisk yolks and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale (3-4 minutes), set aside until required. Combine milk, vanilla bean and seeds in a large saucepan, bring just to the boil, remove from heat, remove vanilla bean and keep warm.
  • 03
  • Melt butter in a separate saucepan over medium heat, add rice, stir to coat and toast (1-2 minutes). Add wine and stir continuously until wine evaporates (1-2 minutes). Add hot milk mixture, 250ml at a time, stirring continuously until milk is absorbed before adding more. When rice is al dente (25-30 minutes), stir in egg yolk mixture and cook until thick (1-2 minutes). Remove from heat, divide among bowls, spoon over rhubarb and serve immediately with natural yoghurt, if desired.
