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.

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.

Fast autumn dinners

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

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.

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.

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.

Japanese clam and angelhair pasta


This dish is inspired by a recipe from Mark Robinson's Izakaya: The Japanese Pub Cookbook. Western ingredients such as pasta are often found in izakaya dishes - an interesting twist on traditional flavours.

You'll need

2 tbsp vegetable oil 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 350 gm mixed mushrooms such as shimeji, enoki and shiitake, trimmed, cut into 1cm slices 1 kg scrubbed and purged clams (see note) 40 ml sake 300 gm dried angelhair pasta 60 ml (¼ cup) soy sauce To serve: roasted black and white sesame seeds, julienned nori, thinly sliced spring onion and togarashi (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, then add garlic and cook until tender (1-2 minutes). Add mushrooms and cook until starting to colour (2-3 minutes). Add clams and sake, stir to combine, cover with a lid and shake occasionally until clams open (5-6 minutes).
  • 02
  • Cook pasta in a saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (5-6 minutes), drain (reserve 2 tbsp pasta water). Add pasta, pasta water and soy sauce to clams and stir to combine. Serve hot topped with sesame seeds, nori and togarashi.

Note Buy packets of purged clams from your fishmonger; or soak clams in cold water for 2 hours. Togarashi is sansho pepper seasoning, available from Japanese grocers.
