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.

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.

Anticuchos


These grilled beef skewers originated in Peru but are also popular in Bolivia. They're typically made with ox heart but other cuts of beef such as skirt steak work well, too. Ox heart needs to be ordered ahead from your butcher, who can also trim off the arteries for you. 

You'll need

1 tbsp cumin seeds 1 ox heart, trimmed of fat and sinew, or 1 large skirt steak, thinly sliced 3 garlic cloves, crushed 2 tbsp olive oil 2 tsp aged red wine vinegar   Chilli peanut sauce 10 long red chillies 2 Roma tomatoes 100 gm roasted unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped ¼ cup coarsely chopped coriander 2 tbsp mild-flavoured extra-virgin olive oil 1 tsp lime juice, or to taste

Method

  • 01
  • Dry-roast cumin seeds until fragrant (1 minute; see cook’s notes p185). Cool briefly and coarsely crush with a mortar and pestle. Transfer to a bowl along with beef, garlic, oil and vinegar, toss to combine and refrigerate to marinate (at least a few hours or preferably overnight).
  • 02
  • Thread beef pieces onto skewers, then set aside on a tray, cover, and refrigerate until ready to cook.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for chilli peanut sauce, grill chillies and tomatoes on a wire rack over a gas flame, turning occasionally, until blackened (2-3 minutes; this can also be done on a barbecue or in the oven). Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and leave to steam for 5-10 minutes. Peel chillies and tomatoes, and remove seeds from chillies. Coarsely chop tomatoes and chillies, then pulse in a food processor with peanuts until processed to a coarse paste. Season to taste, stir in coriander, oil and lime juice and transfer to a bowl.
  • 04
  • Bring a charcoal grill or barbecue to high heat and grill skewers in batches, turning occasionally, until charred and just cooked (3-5 minutes). Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with sea salt and serve with chilli peanut sauce.
