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.

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.

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.

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.

Wonton mee


This Cantonese wonton noodle soup is cleansing, hearty and relatively simple to make - the perfect elixir for winter's chill.

You'll need

2 kg chicken bones 2 litres (8 cups) chicken stock To taste: light soy sauce 1½ tsp sesame oil 750 gm thin fresh egg noodles To serve: chilli oil   Prawn and pork wontons 230 gm peeled and cleaned prawns, minced 200 gm minced pork 1 spring onion, finely chopped 3 tsp oyster sauce 1 tsp soy sauce ½ tsp sesame oil ½ tsp finely grated ginger 30 wonton wrappers

Method

  • 01
  • Combine chicken bones and chicken stock in a large saucepan, barely cover with water, bring to the boil, skim scum, reduce heat to low and simmer until stock is very well flavoured (3 hours). Strain, measure out 2 litres stock (freeze any remaining stock for another use) and season to taste with light soy sauce.
  • 02
  • For prawn and pork wontons, combine ingredients (except wonton wrappers) in a bowl and season to taste with white pepper. Working with a wrapper at a time, place a teaspoon of filling in centre, brush edges with water, fold to create a triangle enclosing filling and press to seal. Set aside on a tray lined with baking paper, cover and repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  • 03
  • Season 6 warm serving bowls with ¼ tsp sesame oil each. Cook noodles in boiling water until tender (2-4 minutes), drain and divide among bowls. Cook wontons in boiling water in batches until cooked through (2-4 minutes), remove and divide among bowls. Bring chicken stock to the boil and divide among bowls. Serve hot with chilli oil and extra soy sauce.

Hot tip You can make the wontons for this soup a day ahead - keep them refrigerated on a tray lined with baking paper, covered tightly with plastic wrap, until you're ready to cook them.
