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

Roast corn-fed chook with rocket, radicchio and daikon salad


You'll need

4 heads of young garlic (see note), coarsely chopped Juice of 1 large lemon 1 tbsp Dijon mustard 250 ml (1 cup) extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling 1 tbsp coarsely chopped rosemary, plus flowers to serve (optional) 2 corn-fed chickens (1.8kg each) 8 banana chillies, quartered, trimmed, seeds removed 2 tbsp cabernet sauvignon vinegar 1 kg new potatoes, scrubbed 1 kg asparagus (about 4 bunches)   Rocket, radicchio and daikon salad 100 gm rocket 1 Treviso radicchio, leaves separated ¼ daikon, cut into julienne on a mandolin 150 ml extra-virgin olive oil 2 tbsp chardonnay vinegar 1 tsp Dijon mustard

Method

  • 01
  • Process garlic, lemon juice and mustard in a food processor, then season to taste. With motor running, add oil in a thin steady stream until incorporated. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in rosemary. Set aside.
  • 02
  • Halve chickens, removing backbone and thigh bone. Rub generously with garlic marinade and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Arrange chillies skin-side up in a baking tray. Dress with olive oil, season to taste and drizzle vinegar over, then roast until tender and slightly charred (25-30 minutes). Keep warm. (You can also roast chillies in advance and reheat to serve.)
  • 04
  • Increase oven to 210C. Place chicken in a roasting pan and roast until skin is crisp and golden and juices run clear when leg is pierced with a skewer (40 minutes).
  • 05
  • Meanwhile, cook potatoes in a saucepan of boiling salted water until just tender (15-20 minutes), then drain. Blanch asparagus until just tender (1-3 minutes). Transfer potatoes and asparagus to pan with roasted chillies, season to taste, toss with extra olive oil, then arrange on a platter.
  • 06
  • For rocket, radicchio and daikon salad, combine rocket, radicchio and daikon in a bowl. Whisk oil, vinegar and mustard in a small bowl to combine, season to taste, pour over salad and toss to combine.
  • 07
  • Halve chicken pieces, place on top of vegetables, sprinkle with rosemary flowers, then pour pan juices over. Serve hot with rocket, radicchio and daikon salad.
