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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Chinese-style roast chicken


Shaoxing wine, soy sauce and ginger give this chicken a lovely Chinese flavour. Serve it with steamed rice, or simple fried rice or stir-fried greens.

You'll need

1 chicken (about 1.5kg) 3 tsp grapeseed oil 80 ml (1/3 cup) butcher-quality chicken stock 60 ml (¼ cup) Shaoxing wine 60 ml (¼ cup) light soy sauce 1 tbsp dark soy sauce 15 gm ginger, finely grated 1 garlic clove, crushed 1 pinch of coarsely ground white pepper 4 spring onions, trimmed To serve: black sesame seeds, steamed jasmine rice and Chinese chilli paste (optional)

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Place chicken in a roasting pan or large casserole and brush with oil. Combine stock, Shaoxing, soy sauces, ginger, garlic and pepper in a bowl, then pour over chicken and add spring onions. Roast, basting occasionally and adding a little water to the pan if it becomes dry, and turning spring onions occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear when the thigh is pierced with a skewer (55 minutes to 1 hour). Set aside to rest in a warm place (15 minutes).
  • 02
  • Scatter the chicken with sesame seeds, and serve with steamed rice and Chinese chilli paste.
