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.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

Roasted cauliflower salad with yoghurt dressing and almonds

The cauliflower is roasted until it starts to caramelise, which adds extra depth of flavour to this winning salad. Serve it warm or at room temperature.

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.

All Star Yum Cha

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

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.

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.

Potato salad with green mayonnaise


This is a perfect spring salad to serve alongside almost any meat- roast lamb, beef or chicken, for instance - or pan-fried fish. Finishing the potatoes with white wine and stock adds extra layers of flavour, while a herbaceous mayonnaise keeps things fresh and interesting. Add the lemon juice to the mayonnaise just before serving to maintain its bright green colour.

You'll need

1.2 kg small potatoes, such as baby Desiree, kipfler or Dutch cream, scrubbed 100 ml dry white wine 50 ml chicken stock (optional) 2 golden shallots, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 cup (loosely packed) watercress sprigs To serve: beetroot cress (optional)   Green mayonnaise 2 egg yolks 1½ tbsp white wine vinegar 2 tsp Dijon mustard 180 ml olive oil ¼ cup each coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley, mint and tarragon, plus extra to serve Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon, or to taste

Method

  • 01
  • Boil potatoes in a large saucepan of salted water until tender (10-15 minutes). Drain, cool slightly, halve and return to pan with wine, stock, shallots and garlic. Season to taste and stir gently over medium-high heat until liquid evaporates (1-2 minutes). Set aside to cool.
  • 02
  • For green mayonnaise, whisk yolks, vinegar and mustard in a bowl to combine. Gradually add oil in a thin, steady stream, whisking continuously until emulsified. Whisk in herbs and lemon rind, season to taste and set aside. Just before serving, stir in lemon juice.
  • 03
  • Add green mayonnaise to potatoes according to taste (refrigerate leftover mayonnaise for up to a week) and toss to coat well. Scatter with watercress, beetroot cress and extra herbs, and serve at room temperature.
