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.

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.

Fast autumn dinners

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

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.

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.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

Fennel seed grissini with grilled zucchini


Grissini will keep in an airtight container for 5-7 days. If they lose their crispness, refresh them quickly in a hot oven.

You'll need

7 gm (about 1 sachet) dry yeast 250 gm “00” flour 1 tbsp dry-roasted fennel seeds 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil For scattering: sea salt flakes   Marinated zucchini 3 zucchini, thinly sliced lengthways into ribbons 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil ¼ cup (loosely packed) oregano leaves 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 lemon, finely grated rind only

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Combine yeast, a pinch of flour and 125ml lukewarm water in a bowl, stir to dissolve yeast and set aside until foamy(5-7 minutes). Combine remaining flour, fennel seeds and 1 tsp sea salt flakes in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre, pour in yeast mixture and olive oil, mix to form a dough, turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth (5-7 minutes). Place in a large lightly oiled bowl, cover and set aside until doubled in size (50 minutes-1 hour). Divide dough into walnut-sized pieces, then stretch and roll each piece on a lightly floured work surface to form a thin cylinder about 25cm long. Place on baking paper-lined oven trays, scatter with sea salt and cook in batches until golden and crisp (10-12 minutes), then cool completely. Makes about 35.
  • 02
  • For marinated zucchini, heat a chargrill on high heat, brush zucchini with a little extra-virgin olive oil, and grill in batches, turning once, until cooked through (2-3 minutes). Combine oregano, garlic, lemon rind and remaining oil in a bowl and pour over zucchini. Season to taste and serve with grissini.
