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.

Prosecco jellies with Aperol granita


This is the perfect do-ahead dessert: the jellies keep for five days, as will the granita. Despite its simplicity, it delivers big on both flavour and refreshment. Begin a day ahead to set the jellies and freeze the granita.

You'll need

750 ml prosecco 165 gm (3/4 cup) caster sugar 7 titanium-strength gelatine leaves, softened in cold water for 5 minutes   Aperol granita 110 gm (½ cup) caster sugar 375 ml (1½ cups) soda water 100 ml ruby grapefruit juice 80 ml Aperol

Method

  • 01
  • Bring prosecco, sugar and 250ml water to the boil in a saucepan, then remove from heat, squeeze excess water from gelatine and stir into prosecco mixture to dissolve. Divide jelly evenly among eight small glasses (about 250ml each) and refrigerate overnight to set. Cover and refrigerate until required. Jellies will keep for 5 days.
  • 02
  • For Aperol granita, stir sugar and 125ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, bring to the boil, cook for 1 minute, then set aside to cool. Add remaining ingredients and place in a shallow metal tray and freeze overnight. Scrape into crystals with a fork, cover and freeze until required.
  • 03
  • To serve, fluff up Aperol granita with a fork, pile it on jellies and serve immediately.
