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.

Zeppole di San Giuseppe (St Joseph's doughnuts)


You'll need

250 gm arborio rice 250 ml (1 cup) milk 125 gm plain flour 7 gm (1 sachet) dried yeast For deep-frying: vegetable oil 200 gm orange-blossom honey Juice and finely grated rind of 1 orange 40 gm caster sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)   Candied orange peel Thinly peeled rind of 1 orange 220 gm caster sugar

Method

  • 01
  • For candied orange peel, blanch rind, drain, repeat twice and set aside. Stir caster sugar and 250ml water in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves, bring to the boil, add rind, cook until translucent (10-15 minutes) and set aside.
  • 02
  • Bring 1 litre water and a pinch of salt to the boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add rice, stir occasionally until water is absorbed (10-15 minutes) and set aside to cool.
  • 03
  • Combine rice, milk, flour and yeast in a large bowl and set aside to rest (1 hour).
  • 04
  • Preheat oil in a deep-sided saucepan to 180C. Shape rice mixture into quenelles with two spoons and deep-fry in batches until golden (5-10 minutes; be careful as hot oil will spit). Drain on absorbent paper and keep warm.
  • 05
  • Meanwhile, combine honey, orange juice and orange rind in a bowl. Add zeppole in batches and toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, scatter with candied orange peel and serve warm.
This recipe is from the April 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

Every region in Italy has its own version of zeppole, and this particular recipe is from Sicily's Caffè Calì, which was established by Antonino CalÏ more than 60 years ago in the town of Piedimonte Etneo. Zeppole are traditionally eaten in celebration of the feast of St Joseph on 19 March, but Caffè Calì sells them on weekends throughout the colder months.
