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.

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.

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.

Turmeric chicken with lemon pickle and almonds


When you don't want to roast a whole chicken, Marylands are a great option; their high fat content makes them great for roasting. Start this recipe two weeks ahead to pickle the lemons.

You'll need

4 chicken Marylands (about 350gm each) 60 ml (1/4 cup) grapeseed oil 1 white onion, cut into wedges 4 red birdseye chillies, halved 1 garlic clove, crushed ½ tsp ground turmeric ½ tsp nigella seeds 3 sprigs fresh curry leaves, torn 60 gm natural almonds, coarsely chopped Juice of 1 lime Steamed basmati rice and yoghurt (optional), to serve   Lemon pickle 1 lemon 1 tbsp grapeseed oil ¼ tsp fenugreek seeds Pinch of brown mustard seeds Pinch of chilli powder

Method

  • 01
  • For lemon pickle, wash lemon and place in a heatproof bowl, cover with boiling water to clean skin, then drain. Rinse, cut into thin wedges, place in a bowl with 2 tbsp salt, squeeze lightly and toss to combine. Transfer wedges to a sterilised jar that holds them snugly, pressing down to compact them. Warm oil and spices in a small saucepan over low heat until fragrant and mustard seeds start to pop, pour into jars, seal and store in a cool dark place, turning occasionally, for 2 weeks.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 230C. Place chicken and remaining ingredients except lime juice in a bowl, toss to combine, season to taste, then transfer to a roasting pan that holds chicken snugly. Push spices and almonds around chicken pieces, drizzle with lime juice and roast until golden brown and cooked through (about 50 minutes). Serve with lemon pickle, yoghurt and steamed rice.
