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.

Fast autumn dinners

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

Roasted cauliflower salad with yoghurt dressing and almonds

The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

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.

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.

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.

All Star Yum Cha

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

Poached eggs with creamed corn and green chilli relish


Bacon bones impart a delicious smokiness to the creamed corn but feel free to leave them out. You can always add a pinch of smoked paprika instead for a similar result. The creamed corn can be made a day in advance and warmed before serving.

You'll need

8 eggs (see note) To serve: toast   Creamed corn 120 gm butter, coarsely chopped 1 Spanish onion, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 200 gm bacon bones 5 corn cobs, husks and silks discarded 500 ml (2 cups) milk Finely grated rind of 2 limes   Green chilli relish 50 ml olive oil 30 ml lime juice 2 pickled jalapeños, thinly sliced (see note) 1 spring onion, thinly sliced ½ garlic clove, finely chopped 2 tbsp coarsely chopped coriander

Method

  • 01
  • For creamed corn, melt 30gm butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add onion and garlic and sauté until very tender (5-6 minutes), then add bacon bones, sauté until fragrant (1-2 minutes). Meanwhile, slice kernels from corn cobs, set aside, then cut each cob into rough pieces. Add kernels and cobs to pan, add milk, season to taste, cover with a lid and simmer until kernels are very tender (12-15 minutes). Drain (reserve liquid, discard bacon bones and cobs). Pulse corn mixture, in batches, in a food processor, adding enough of the reserved liquid until a semi-smooth purée forms. Transfer to a clean pan over medium heat, add remaining butter a little at a time, and stir until melted and combined. Stir in lime rind, season to taste and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for green chilli relish, combine ingredients (except coriander) in a bowl, season to taste and set aside. Add chopped coriander just before serving.
  • 03
  • Poach eggs, in batches, in simmering water over low heat until cooked to your liking (2-3 minutes for soft yolks), drain well, pat dry on absorbent paper. Serve with warm creamed corn on toast topped with green chilli relish.

Note For beautifully shaped poached eggs, use the freshest eggs you can find. Pickled jalapeños are available from select delicatessens and supermarkets.
