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

Feta's tang livens up all sorts of dishes, from beef shin rigatoni or blistered kale ribs to Greek-style roast lamb neck.

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.

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.

Cape Grim short rib, mustard leaf, gentleman’s relish


You'll need

1½ tbsp olive oil, plus extra to serve 2 each onions, carrots and celery stalks, diced 1 garlic head, halved 4 fresh bay leaves 8 thyme sprigs 6 flat-leaf parsley stalks 2 litres (8 cups) chicken stock 3 Cape Grim short ribs (1kg each; see note) 12 large red mustard leaves, stems removed   Gentleman’s relish 250 ml (1 cup) cider vinegar 85 gm (1 cup) pitted prunes 125 ml (½ cup) tomato ketchup 65 gm brown sugar 50 ml Worcestershire sauce 4 spring onions, thinly sliced 3 garlic cloves 2 anchovy fillets 3 cloves 1 tbsp mustard powder 2 tsp ground allspice Pinch of chilli powder

Method

  • 01
  • For gentleman’s relish, combine ingredients in a saucepan with ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper and 40ml water, simmer over low heat for 30 minutes, then process in a food processor until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve and refrigerate in a sterilised container until required. Makes 500ml. Gentleman’s relish will keep refrigerated for 6 months.
  • 02
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat in a saucepan large enough to fit short ribs snugly in a single layer, add onion, carrot, celery and garlic and stir occasionally until caramelised (15-20 minutes). Add herbs and stock, bring to the simmer, skim scum from surface. Season short ribs generously, add to pan, cover tightly with foil and simmer very gently over low heat until meat is tender and almost falling from the bone (3½-4 hours).
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Transfer short rib to a shallow roasting pan with a little braising liquid and roast until beginning to caramelise (12-15 minutes). Dress mustard leaves in a little olive oil and salt, and place 2 leaves on each plate, along with a large spoonful of gentleman’s relish. Add one piece of Cape Grim short rib to each plate and serve hot.
Note Ask your butcher to halve each short rib through the bone.
