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.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Melbourne's best late-night bars

As the shutters come down in other Australian capitals, Melbourne's vibrant nightlife is just hitting it's stride. Michael Harden burns the midnight oil at the city's best late-night bars and diners.

Peach chicken lemon rice pilaf


Using fruit in savoury dishes adds an interesting flavour - think duck and pineapple, or rabbit and prunes. Chicken and peaches also pair well, especially with the addition of Middle Eastern spices. The flavour will improve further with standing overnight.

You'll need

80 ml (1/3 cup) olive oil 4 corn-fed free-range chicken marylands (about 400gm each), halved through the joint 5 garlic cloves 1 tbsp each ground cumin and ground coriander 1 tsp each ground turmeric and ground kashmiri chilli (see note) 2 onions, diced 1 lemon, juice and finely grated rind 800 ml hot chicken stock 2 yellow peaches, cut into wedges 20 gm butter 2 each cinnamon quills, cardamom pods, bruised, and fresh bay leaves 400 gm (2 cups) long-grain rice, rinsed To serve: torn coriander and parsley

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Heat 20ml oil in a frying pan, season chicken and sauté over high heat until golden (3-5 minutes), set aside.
  • 02
  • Process garlic, ground spices and half the onion in a food processor until finely chopped.
  • 03
  • Heat 40ml oil in a casserole, add onion mixture and sauté until fragrant (2-3 minutes), then add lemon juice, 300ml stock and chicken, season to taste and stir to combine. Scatter peaches over and spoon a little cooking liquid over peaches, cover, bring to the simmer and cook over low-medium heat for 10 minutes. Remove lid and cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through and peaches are tender (5-10 minutes).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a separate casserole, add butter, remaining spices and remaining onion and stir over medium heat until starting to caramelise (5 minutes). Add rice, stir to coat, add remaining stock, season to taste, bring to the simmer, cover and bake until rice is cooked (15 minutes). Stir through lemon rind and serve with peach chicken, scattered with coriander and parsley.
