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.

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.

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.

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.

Tiramisù


Tiramisù is the first dessert that springs to mind when you think Italian coffee desserts. Translating as "pick me up", this classic has foundations of coffee, savoiardi (sponge fingers), zabaione, mascarpone, and cream or crème fraîche.

You'll need

12 savoiardi biscuits 500 gm mascarpone 250 gm crème fraîche 2 eggwhites For dusting: Dutch-process cocoa   Coffee syrup 200 ml long-black-strength coffee 50 gm raw caster sugar 50 ml brandy 25 ml amaretto   Zabaione 2 egg yolks 60 gm caster sugar 25 ml Marsala

Method

  • 01
  • For coffee syrup, stir coffee and sugar in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves (2-4 minutes). Add brandy and amaretto, stir to combine, then set aside to cool slightly (10-15 minutes).
  • 02
  • Lay savoiardi on a deep tray, spoon over coffee syrup and set aside until absorbed (5-10 minutes).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for zabaione, whisk yolks, sugar, Marsala and 1 tbsp water in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water until pale and thick (2-4 minutes), set aside to cool.
  • 04
  • Whisk mascarpone and crème fraîche to combine, then fold through zabaione.
  • 05
  • Whisk eggwhites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form, then fold through mascarpone mixture.
  • 06
  • Lay half the soaked savoiardi in a 25cm-diameter serving dish, spread half the mascarpone mixture over and dust with cocoa, then repeat. Refrigerate for flavours to develop (2-4 hours), then serve dusted with extra cocoa.
