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.

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.

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.

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.

Peach-Ginger Punch with Rye


The peach purée for this punch can be made a day ahead - add the other ingredients just before serving. For the best flavour, use very ripe peaches and make sure the boozy peach nectar is well-chilled. Serve the punch with extra sliced peaches macerated in rye whiskey for an added kick.

You'll need

6 ripe yellow peaches (1.2kg), crosses scored on the bases Juice of 1 lemon 750 ml (3 cups) ginger beer 300 ml rye whiskey 60 ml St-Germain liqueur To serve: thin peach wedges macerated in rye whiskey and mint leaves (optional)

Method

  • 01
  • Blanch peaches until just tender and skins start to split (1 minute), then drain. Remove skins (it’s okay if some flesh comes away too) and place them in a bowl with lemon juice. Stand until colour seeps from them (about a minute), then transfer to a blender along with peach flesh. Blend to a smooth purée, then transfer to a sterile bottle with tight lid and refrigerate until required. Purée will keep refrigerated for 2 days.
  • 02
  • Add ginger beer gradually (it will bubble up) along with the rye whiskey and St-Germain to chilled peach purée, then transfer to individual serving bottles, seal again and keep on ice ready to serve.

Note This recipe makes about 1.5 litres.
