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.

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.

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.

Cotriade


You can use any fish you like in this light yet flavourful Breton fish stew; a mixture of different varieties is good for texture and flavour.

You'll need

1 tbsp lard 100 gm speck, diced 3 onions, thinly sliced 1 kg red rascal potatoes (about 7), sliced 8mm thick (see note) 1.5 litres (6 cups) hot chicken stock 1 thyme sprig 1 kg black mussels, scrubbed and rinsed 1 kg firm white fish fillets, such as striped trumpeter, red mullet and snapper, cut into 10cm pieces ½ cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley   Croûtons 125 ml (½ cup) clarified butter 8 thick slices sourdough 1 garlic clove

Method

  • 01
  • Heat a casserole over medium heat, add lard and speck, cook until fat renders (3-5 minutes), add onion and stir occasionally until tender (10-15 minutes). Add potato, stock and thyme, bring to the simmer, then reduce heat to low and simmer until potato is tender (10-20 minutes). Remove potato with a slotted spoon, set aside and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Bring stock to the boil over high heat, add mussels and stir occasionally until opened (3-5 minutes). Transfer to potato, keep warm.
  • 03
  • Reduce heat to medium, add fish to stock, poach until just cooked through (3-5 minutes), add parsley and season to taste.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for croûtons, heat clarified butter in a frying pan over medium heat, add bread and cook, turning once, until golden (1-2 minutes each side). Rub bread and serving bowls with garlic clove, then discard garlic. Divide croûtons among bowls, top with potatoes and mussels, then ladle over fish and soup. Season liberally with freshly ground black pepper and serve hot.

Note Red rascal potatoes are available from select greengrocers. If unavailable, substitute small Desiree potatoes.
