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.

Carrot, pecorino and sage fritters


These little bundles are very versatile. While we've opted to flavour them with pecorino and sage, they'd work well with feta, dill and mint, or given a subcontinental twist with paneer and coriander.

You'll need

1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for shallow-frying ½ small onion, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove 3 cups coarsely grated carrot 100 gm pecorino, coarsely grated 100 gm (2/3 cup) plain flour 2 tbsp coarsely chopped sage, plus extra leaves to serve 1 tbsp coarsely chopped thyme Finely grated rind of 1 lemon, plus wedges to serve To serve: aïoli

Method

  • 01
  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add onion and garlic and sauté until tender (3-4 minutes). Tip into a large bowl, add carrot, pecorino, flour, herbs and rind, season to taste and mix well. Form into 10-12 rough patties and set aside on a tray.
  • 02
  • Heat 1cm oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add sage leaves and fry until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Add patties to pan in batches and fry until golden brown on both sides and cooked through (5-6 minutes). Drain on paper towels, season to taste and serve topped with sage leaves with lemon wedges and aïoli.
