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.

Method

  • 01
  • For yoghurt flatbread, stir flour, baking powder and 2 tsp sea salt in a bowl to combine, add yoghurt and oil and stir to combine. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, knead until a soft dough forms (1-2 minutes), wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate to rest (1 hour). Divide into 10 pieces, roll each piece into a ball, then roll out on a lightly floured surface to 3mm thick and store between pieces of baking paper until you’re ready to cook.
  • 02
  • Combine prawns, garlic, sumac, lemon rind, half the lemon juice and 60ml oil in a non-reactive bowl, season to taste and refrigerate to marinate (30 minutes). Thread prawns onto skewers, place on a tray and drizzle with a little extra oil.
  • 03
  • For smoky eggplant, heat barbecue to high heat and cook eggplant, turning occasionally, until charred and very tender (10-15 minutes), then set aside to cool slightly (15 minutes). Cut each eggplant in half, scoop flesh into a colander and set aside to drain (10 minutes). Transfer to a bowl, stir in remaining ingredients, except fresh coriander, season to taste and set aside to cool. Stir in fresh coriander just before serving.
  • 04
  • Drizzle each side of flatbread with a little extra oil and grill on the barbecue in batches, turning once, until golden and slightly charred (1-2 minutes each side), then set aside.
  • 05
  • Barbecue prawn skewers, turning occasionally, until just cooked through (2-3 minutes).
  • 06
  • Combine herbs, spring onion, remaining lemon juice and remaining oil in a bowl and season to taste. Serve with prawn skewers, warm yoghurt flatbread, smoky eggplant and lemon wedges.
