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.

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.

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.

Glazed ham with radishes and beans


You'll need

2 kg smoked ham hocks or Kassler 2 tbsp hot English mustard 2 tsp ground cloves 250 gm brown sugar 125 ml (½ cup) dry Sherry 2 tbsp olive oil 24 radishes, trimmed and halved Juice of ½ lemon, or to taste 500 gm baby green beans, trimmed To serve: extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Rub ham hocks with mustard, dust with cloves, place in a baking dish and roast until a crust forms (40 minutes).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, stir brown sugar and Sherry in a saucepan over low heat and simmer gently until syrupy (5-6 minutes).
  • 03
  • Increase oven to 180C. Brush a little Sherry glaze over ham and continue cooking, basting every 15 minutes, until ham is well glazed and aromatic and glaze caramelises around edges of baking dish (40-45 minutes). Thickly slice ham and arrange on a platter.
  • 04
  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add radish and stir occasionally until lightly coloured (1-2 minutes). Season to taste and add a squeeze of lemon juice for flavour and to allow the redness of the radishes to bleed.
  • 05
  • Blanch baby green beans (2-3 minutes), add to pan with radishes and enough extra-virgin olive oil to just coat vegetables, toss to combine and serve hot or warm with thickly sliced ham.

"Ah, the glory of pickled pork: smoked, savoury, salty and sweet," says Hugh Wennerbom. "Smoked ham hocks are ideal for this recipe because they are so unctuous, but they can be tricky to source. Kassler or leg ham pieces are good alternatives."
