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

Recipes with zucchini

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."

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.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Ham and Gruyère buckwheat crêpes


You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.

You'll need

300 gm coarsely grated Gruyère, plus extra to serve 200 gm crème fraîche 2 tsp Dijon mustard 2 tbsp coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley and chervil, plus extra to serve 12 slices leg ham off the bone, coarsely torn 500 gm cherry tomatoes, on the vine 1½ tbsp olive oil 1 tsp red wine vinegar 1 tsp thyme For brushing and drizzling: melted butter   Buckwheat crêpes 500 ml (2 cups) milk 110 gm (¾ cup) plain flour 100 gm buckwheat flour 100 gm butter, melted and cooled 3 eggs

Method

  • 01
  • For buckwheat crêpes, process ingredients and 1 tsp sea salt in a food processor until smooth and combined, transfer to a jug, cover and refrigerate overnight to rest. Brush a 25cm-diameter crêpe pan with a little melted butter. Stir crêpe mixture, pour 2-3 tbsp into pan, swirling quickly to thinly coat base, and cook, turning once, until browned on each side (30 seconds-1 minute each side). Transfer to a plate lined with baking paper and repeat with remaining butter and batter, wiping out pan with absorbent paper between crêpes (stir batter occasionally and thin with a little extra milk to a pourable consistency when required, as batter will thicken while standing). Store crêpes between layers of baking paper covered with plastic wrap until required.
  • 02
  • Combine Gruyère, crème fraîche, mustard and herbs in a bowl and season to taste. Working with one crêpe at a time, place crêpe on a work surface, spread with Gruyère mixture, scatter with ham, then fold into quarters and place in a baking dish brushed with melted butter. Repeat with remaining crêpes, overlapping crêpes in dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Spread tomatoes on an oven tray, drizzle with oil and vinegar, scatter with thyme and season to taste. Roast until skins split (10-15 minutes) and keep warm.
  • 04
  • Drizzle crêpes with melted butter, scatter with remaining Gruyère, cover with foil and bake until bubbling and warmed through (8-10 minutes). Serve warm, scattered with roast tomatoes and extra herbs.
