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.

Roast baby beetroot, goat’s curd and rosemary tart


You'll need

3 bunches baby beetroot, trimmed, plus 1 cup (loosely packed) beetroot leaves, to serve 1½ tbsp olive oil 1 tsp rosemary leaves 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 10 gm butter 2 tsp each lemon juice and orange juice 100 gm goat’s curd, to serve   Rough puff pastry 225 gm (1½ cups) plain flour 225 gm chilled butter, coarsely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • For rough puff pastry, sieve flour and 1 tsp fine salt onto a work surface. Scatter butter over flour and cut butter into flour with a pastry scraper until roughly mixed (there should still be small lumps of butter in the mixture). Make a well in the centre, add 80ml iced water and use pastry scraper to just combine. Bring dough together with the heel of your hand, form into a small rectangular block, wrap in plastic wrap and rest in refrigerator until firm (20-30 minutes). Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to form a 1.5cm-thick rectangle (about 15cm x 40cm). Fold short ends in to meet in the centre. Fold dough in half to form a book fold. Wrap in plastic wrap, refrigerate until just firm (20-30 minutes). Repeat rolling and folding with each piece twice more. Wrap in plastic wrap and rest in refrigerator (30 minutes), then roll to a 24cm-diameter round and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200C. Roast beetroot with 80ml water in a roasting pan covered with foil, turning beetroot once, until tender (40-50 minutes). Set aside to cool, then peel, halve and set aside.
  • 03
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a 23cm-diameter frying pan, add rosemary, garlic and butter and cook until butter starts to foam (10 seconds). Arrange beetroot cut-side up in pan, then place pastry round on top, tucking edges in with a spoon. Transfer to oven and bake until dark golden and puffed (10-20 minutes).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, combine beetroot leaves with lemon and orange juice and remaining oil, season to taste.
  • 05
  • Carefully invert tart onto a plate, then dot with goat’s curd, top with beetroot leaves and serve.
