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.

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.

Best feta recipes

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.

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.

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."

Pappardelle with braised rabbit, onion and rosemary


You'll need

60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 1 rabbit, jointed (see note) For dusting: seasoned plain flour 4 Spanish onions, cut into wedges 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 2 tbsp rosemary, coarsely chopped 150 ml dry white wine 400 ml chicken stock 1 quantity whole egg pasta dough To serve: aged balsamic vinegar To serve: finely grated parmesan

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 140C. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Dust rabbit in flour, shake off any excess and cook, turning once, until golden (3-4 minutes).
  • 02
  • Heat remaining oil in a casserole over medium heat. Add onion, stir occasionally until tender (16-18 minutes), add garlic and rosemary, stir to combine. Add wine, bring to the simmer, then add stock and rabbit and bring to the simmer. Cover with a lid and cook in oven until rabbit is tender and falling from the bone (1¼-1½ hours). Remove meat with a slotted spoon and set aside, then, when cool enough to handle, shred (discard bones and sinew). Simmer braising liquid until reduced by half (10 minutes) then add rabbit meat, season to taste and keep warm.
  • 03
  • Cut pasta dough into 18cm x 3cm pappardelle strips with a fluted pastry wheel and set aside on trays lined with baking paper and dusted with flour.
  • 04
  • Cook pappardelle in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (2-3 minutes). Drain (reserve 20ml pasta water), return to pan along with pasta water, toss through rabbit and braising liquid and serve drizzled with balsamic vinegar and scattered with parmesan.
Note Rabbit is available from specialty butchers but you may need to order ahead. Ask your butcher to joint the rabbit for you.
