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.

Potatoes stuffed with braised lamb


Never mind the sour cream, stuffed potatoes needn't be so naff. When small potatoes are used these make great cocktail food.

You'll need

8 floury potatoes, such as kennebec or coliban (about 150g each) To serve: finely grated parmesan   Braised lamb shanks 50 ml olive oil 900 gm (about 3) lamb shanks 1 onion, finely chopped 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped 2 carrots, finely chopped 2 celery stalks, finely chopped 1 tbsp tomato paste 500 ml (2 cups) chicken stock 125 ml red wine

Method

  • 01
  • For braised lamb shanks, heat olive oil in a casserole on the stove top, add shanks and turn occasionally over high heat until browned (4-5 minutes), then remove from casserole. Reduce heat to medium, add onion and garlic to casserole, stir occasionally until caramelised (8-10 minutes). Add carrot and celery and stir occasionally until soft (3-5 minutes), then stir through tomato paste and cook for another 2 minutes. Return shanks to casserole, add stock and wine, season to taste. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, covered and turning shanks occasionally, until meat falls from the bone (2¾-3 hours). Remove shanks, finely shred meat with two forks (discard bones), set aside. Bring liquid to the boil over high heat, reduce until thick (4-5 minutes), add to lamb, mix to combine, season to taste and set aside.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Pierce each potato with a skewer, brush with oil, wrap tightly in aluminium foil and bake until tender (1¼-1½ hours). Remove tops of potatoes with a sharp knife and scoop out centres (reserve for another use). Spoon lamb mixture into each potato, then bake on a baking tray lined with baking paper until warmed through. Serve scattered with parmesan.
