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.

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.

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.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

Braised greens with poached egg


This peasant-style dish is full of contrasts: the bitterness of the greens against the saltiness of the anchovy and capers, and the creaminess of the eggs against the crunch of the fried breadcrumbs.

You'll need

80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil 2 onions, cut into thin wedges 2 radicchio, outer leaves discarded, coarsely chopped 2 frisée, trimmed, leaves separated 30 ml red wine vinegar 150 gm day-old sourdough bread, coarsely torn 4 eggs, at room temperature   Anchovy and rosemary dressing 5 anchovy fillets, finely chopped 1 tbsp rosemary, finely chopped 1 tbsp salted baby capers, soaked in cold water, drained 1 tbsp Dijon mustard 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 2 tsp finely grated orange rind 1 tbsp red wine vinegar 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For anchovy and rosemary dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl, season to taste, set aside.
  • 02
  • Heat half the olive oil in a large frying pan over low heat, add onion and stir occasionally until very tender (15-20 minutes), add radicchio and frisée and stir until wilted (3-4 minutes). Add vinegar and reduce by half (1 minute). Season to taste and keep warm.
  • 03
  • Heat remaining oil in a small frying pan over medium heat, add breadcrumbs and stir until golden (3-4 minutes), drain on absorbent paper and set aside.
  • 04
  • Bring a large shallow saucepan of lightly salted water to just below the boil over high heat, reduce heat to low. Carefully break eggs into saucepan and poach, spooning water over eggs, until cooked to your liking (3 minutes for soft-poached). Gently remove with a slotted spoon, drain on absorbent paper and keep warm.
  • 05
  • Divide braised greens between shallow serving bowls, top each with a poached egg, spoon over anchovy and rosemary dressing, scatter with breadcrumbs and serve hot.
