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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Orange-glazed ham with potato and parsley salad


You'll need

Thinly peeled rind and juice of 3 oranges and 1 lemon 120 gm light muscovado sugar 40 ml dry apera (see note) 3 tsp coriander seeds, coarsely crushed 1 free-range ham (about 5kg), skin removed, fat scored   Potato and parsley salad 1.8 kg kipfler potatoes, scrubbed 90 ml extra-virgin olive oil 30 ml aged white wine vinegar 4 golden shallots, thinly shaved on a mandolin Juice of 1 lemon 1 cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Stir citrus rind and juice, sugar, apera and coriander in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, bring to the boil, then set aside to cool.
  • 02
  • Place ham in a large roasting pan, brush generously with glaze, pour over remaining glaze and roast on lowest shelf of oven, basting often with pan juices, until glaze is lightly caramelised (1½ hours).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for potato and parsley salad, combine potato and enough cold salted water to cover generously in a large saucepan, bring to the boil, cook until tender (12-15 minutes). Drain, cool slightly, peel and thickly slice. Add oil, vinegar and shallot, season generously and toss to combine. Cool to room temperature, add lemon juice and parsley, toss to combine and serve with warm orange-glazed ham.

Note Sherry-style fortified wine made in Australia is now known as apera.


"I buy my ham each year from Leo Donati in Melbourne. It's such a fine smoked ham that it almost doesn't need a glaze, but this one adds just a little bit of sweetness and spice." Brigitte Hafner
