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.

Melbourne's best late-night bars

Stuffed artichokes


Tying the artichokes with string helps to keep their shape. Alternatively, place artichokes in a baking dish that holds them snugly in place.

You'll need

8 globe artichokes 1 lemon, juice only 16 anchovy fillets 60 ml (¼ cup) vegetable stock 6 thyme sprigs 500 ml (2 cups) olive oil 8 thick slices toasted pane di casa or sourdough bread, to serve   Bread and herb stuffing 160 gm coarse breadcrumbs from pane di casa 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped 2 tbsp finely chopped thyme 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 lemon, finely grated rind only 50 gm finely grated parmesan, plus extra to serve   Gremolata ½ cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley ½ lemon, finely grated rind only ½ garlic clove, finely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Trim tops of artichokes by 3cm with a serrated knife, remove outer leaves with your fingers until you reach the pale inner heart (discard leaves). Trim stems to base of head, peel remaining green exterior with a vegetable peeler, then remove inner hairy choke from artichoke heart with a melon-baller. Place lemon juice in a bowl, then add artichoke, toss to combine and set aside.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 170C. For bread and herb stuffing, combine ingredients in a bowl and season to taste.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, cook artichoke in a saucepan of boiling salted water until just tender (10-15 minutes). Drain artichoke and, when cool enough to handle, separate leaves gently with your fingers, keeping the heads intact. Place two anchovies in each artichoke between the leaves, then stuff the heart and between the leaves of each artichoke with bread and herb stuffing. Tie each with kitchen string to secure. Place in an ovenproof baking dish large enough to fit artichokes snugly in a single layer, then add stock and thyme and pour over olive oil. Bake, covered with foil, until tender (1-1½ hours).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for gremolata, combine ingredients in a bowl.
  • 05
  • Serve artichokes on warm toasted bread scattered with gremolata and extra parmesan.
