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.

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.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

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.

Apple desserts

Whether baked into a bubbling crumble, caramelised in a puff-pastry tart or served in an all-American pie, apples are a classic filling for fruity desserts. Here are the recipes we keep coming back to.

Fast autumn dinners

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

Fried chicken


You can steam and coat the chicken pieces in advance so they just need to be fried before serving. You'll need to begin this a day ahead to marinate the chicken.

You'll need

12 chicken pieces, drumsticks and wings 800 ml buttermilk For deep-frying: vegetable oil 1 eggwhite, whisked to soft peaks 300 gm (2 cups) self-raising flour 1 tsp onion powder 1 tsp each ground coriander and ground white pepper ½ tsp hot paprika To serve: lemon wedges, aïoli and Tabasco

Method

  • 01
  • Combine chicken and half the buttermilk in a non-reactive container and refrigerate overnight to marinate.
  • 02
  • Drain chicken and steam in bamboo steamers over a saucepan of boiling water until chicken is cooked through (20-25 minutes). You can prepare ahead to this point. Just cool and refrigerate until ready to fry.
  • 03
  • Heat oil in a deep saucepan to 170C. Stir eggwhite into remaining buttermilk. Place flour, onion powder and spices in a bowl, and season heavily with sea salt flakes. Dip chicken pieces in buttermilk, then spiced flour and carefully lower into hot oil (take care, the oil will spit). Repeat with 3 more pieces and cook until golden and crisp (3-5 minutes). Drain well and repeat with remaining chicken pieces. Serve hot with lemon wedges, and aïoli and Tabasco for dipping.
