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."

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

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.

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.

Cheese, onion and chive scrolls


These more-ish scrolls are best served on the day they're made. You can bake them a few hours ahead then warm them in the oven for a few minutes just before serving.

You'll need

1 onion, thinly sliced 1 tbsp olive oil 250 gm (1 2/3 cups) bread flour 100 gm (2/3 cup) rye flour 10 gm brown sugar 7 gm (1 sachet) dried yeast 2 tbsp finely chopped chives 70 gm each Gruyère and aged Cheddar, coarsely grated 125 ml (½ cup) milk, plus extra for brushing

Method

  • 01
  • Stir onion and oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat until tender (4-5 minutes), set aside. Combine flours, sugar, yeast, chives, 50gm cheddar, onion mixture and 2 tsp sea salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook. Warm milk and 90ml water in a saucepan over low heat until lukewarm, add to flour mixture, knead until smooth and elastic (4-5 minutes). Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, cover and stand in a warm place until doubled in size (45 minutes-1 hour).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C. Knock back dough and roll out on a lightly floured surface to a 20cm x 40cm rectangle. Scatter with remaining cheeses then roll to form a long cylinder. Cut into 8 pieces, place cut-side down on an oven tray lined with baking paper, stand until slightly risen (10 minutes). Brush tops with milk and bake until golden (20-25 minutes). Serve warm.
