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.

Steak tartare with smoked salsa


Freeze the beef fillet for an hour before you prepare it so it's easier to cut and refrigerate the diced meat as you go so it remains nice and chilled.

You'll need

400 gm beef fillet, trimmed ½ sourdough baguette, thinly sliced To serve: extra-virgin olive oil 3 tsp lemon juice, or to taste To serve: thick natural yoghurt or crème fraîche, and coriander and parsley dressed with olive oil and lemon   Spicy smoked salsa 7 long red chillies 1½ tbsp capers, coarsely chopped 1 garlic clove, crushed 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil Large pinch of ground chilli 1 tbsp each finely chopped flat-leaf parsley and mint

Method

  • 01
  • Freeze beef fillet for at least an hour to chill well.
  • 02
  • For spicy smoked salsa, char chillies over a gas flame on a stovetop or medium-hot barbecue and turn occasionally until blackened and tender (8-12 minutes). Place in a bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap and set aside to steam (10 minutes). Peel chillies, discard seeds, finely chop and combine in a bowl with remaining ingredients, season well with salt and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 175C. Toast baguette slices in oven until golden (10 minutes). Set aside to cool.
  • 04
  • Finely dice beef and combine with salsa in a bowl and mix well. Add extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice to taste and mix to combine, then transfer to a chilled plate, top with a dollop of yoghurt, scatter with herbs, season well, and serve with croûtes to the side.
