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

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.

Artichoke vinaigrette


You'll need

6 globe artichokes, stalks trimmed to base of head, heads tied with kitchen string   Court bouillon 1 small carrot, thickly sliced 1 celery stalk, thickly sliced ½ leek, thickly sliced 1 head of garlic, halved diagonally 60 ml dry white wine 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1½ tbsp white wine vinegar 6 whole white peppercorns 6 parsley stalks 3 thyme sprigs 1 fresh bay leaf 1 lemon, halved   Vinaigrette 2 tsp Dijon mustard 1½ tsp rice vinegar 75 ml extra-virgin olive oil 45 ml vegetable oil

Method

  • 01
  • For court bouillon, combine ingredients (except lemon), 1 tsp sea salt and 500ml water in a saucepan large enough to fit artichokes in a single layer. Bring to the simmer over medium-high heat, cook for 5 minutes, remove from heat, add lemon, set aside to cool (20 minutes), then discard lemon.
  • 02
  • Add artichokes to court bouillon and bring to the boil over medium heat. Cover with muslin, then a round of baking paper and a lid, reduce heat to low-medium, simmer until artichokes are tender when pierced with a skewer (35-40 minutes) and set aside to cool in liquid.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for vinaigrette, whisk mustard, vinegar and ½ tsp sea salt in a small bowl to combine, add combined oils in a thin steady stream, whisking until emulsified, and set aside.
  • 04
  • Remove string from artichokes, season to taste, drizzle with vinaigrette and serve with court bouillon.
This recipe is from the October 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“The globe artichoke is such a regal thistle. My first experience of eating them in France will stay with me forever: peeling off the petals, dipping them in an intense dressing and scraping the flesh off with my teeth,” says McEnearney. “If you don’t have time to make the more elaborate stock, simply cook the artichokes in lemon and water. They’re also a treat dipped in melted butter and sea salt. Look for heavy, tightly closed flowers with thick stems, as this is an indication of freshness and of a large heart.”
