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.

Spaghettini all'arrabbiata fresca


You'll need

300 gm spaghettini 80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced 1-2 small red chillies, thinly sliced ½-1 tsp dried hot chilli flakes 250 gm (about 2 cups) cherry or grape tomatoes, halved 1 cup (loosely packed) basil

Method

  • 01
  • Bring a saucepan of generously salted water (it should almost taste like the sea) to a simmer over medium-high heat. Add pasta and cook until just al dente (5 minutes; it should be just undercooked), then drain, reserving about 50ml cooking liquid.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic and chilli and fry until aromatic (30 seconds -1 minute). Add tomatoes and basil and increase heat to high. Stir to combine and cook until tomatoes release their juice (2-3 minutes). Add pasta and reserved cooking liquid and simmer until sauce thickens (2-3 minutes). Drizzle with extra olive oil, season to taste and serve hot.

Note This sauce is great on its own, or you can use it as a base to create many other tasty versions. You can mix in flaked good-quality tinned tuna; or add olives, capers and white anchovies, and parsley in place of basil to make a puttanesca fresca. Or go to Sicily by adding, raisins, pine nuts and tinned or fresh sardines for pasta con le sarde.
