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.

Dang myun noodles with raw tuna and kimchi daikon


You'll need

  Noodles ½ daikon (white radish), peeled, halved lengthways and thinly sliced widthways 1 tsp ground chilli ½ tsp minced ginger 1 clove garlic, minced 2 tbsp finely chopped green onion 400 gm dang myun 1 tsp sesame oil 600 gm sashimi-grade tuna, cut into 2cm cubes 1 nashi pear, halved and thinly sliced 1 Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced lengthways, using a mandoline 3 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and halved To serve: Chinese mustard   Vinegar dipping sauce 60 ml (¼ cup) rice vinegar 110 ml soy sauce 2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds 1 tbsp minced ginger 2 tsp ground chilli 2 tsp sugar

Method

  • 01
  • Combine daikon, chilli, ginger, garlic, 1 tbsp green onion and 1 tbsp sea salt in a non-reactive bowl and toss to coat. Cover and stand at room temperature overnight.
  • 02
  • For vinegar sauce, combine ingredients, stir to dissolve sugar and stand overnight.
  • 03
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, add dang myun and return to the boil. Add 1 cup cold water, cover, return to the boil, remove from heat and stand for 3 minutes or until cooked through. To test whether noodles are cooked, cut a noodle and check it is the same colour all the way through. Drain, refresh in cold water, drain again and toss through sesame oil. Divide among serving bowls.
  • 04
  • Combine tuna, remaining green onion and 2 tbsp vinegar sauce in a bowl, toss to combine and arrange over noodles. Top with nashi, cucumber and egg and serve with remaining vinegar sauce, mustard and kimchi daikon passed separately.

Other noodles
In the world of noodles, some things don't fit neatly into categories. Japanese harusame 'spring rain', look like bean thread noodles, but are made from potato and corn starches. Shirataki, also Japanese, are fine strands of a jelly-like paste, konnyaku, made from Japanese yam. Shirataki, meaning 'white waterfall', is most commonly used in sukiyaki and sold suspended in water in clear plastic sausage-shaped packaging. Korea's dang myun, a long greyish noodle, is the final wildcard. Made from sweet potato starch, it's particularly chewy and good for soaking up broths.
