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.

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.

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.

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.

Raspberry and shortbread syllabub


Syllabub is a traditional English dessert that's whipped up in minutes. It has a lovely light, billowy texture, here offset by the tang of raspberries and buttery crumble of shortbread.

You'll need

110 gm (½ cup) caster sugar, plus extra, to taste Juice of 2 lemons and finely grated rind of 1 lemon 150 ml dry white wine 500 ml (2 cups) thickened cream Scraped seeds of 1 vanilla bean 400 gm raspberries, plus extra to serve Juice of ½ orange 40 gm (¼ cup) pure icing sugar, sieved 400 gm shortbread

Method

  • 01
  • Stir sugar, lemon juice and wine in a saucepan over low heat just until sugar dissolves (1-2 minutes). Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until cool (about 15 minutes).
  • 02
  • Whisk cream and vanilla seeds in an electric mixer just until soft peaks form. Gently fold in lemon juice mixture and rind (lemon juice will cause the cream to stiffen – take care not to overwork). Set aside.
  • 03
  • Combine raspberries, orange juice and icing sugar in a bowl and crush lightly with a fork.
  • 04
  • Crumble a third of the shortbread into the base of a 2-litre bowl. Top with a third of the raspberry mixture, then a third of the syllabub, repeat for two more layers with the remaining shortbread, raspberries and syllabub, and top with extra raspberries and serve.
