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.

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.

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.

Apple desserts

Whether baked into a bubbling crumble, caramelised in a puff-pastry tart or served in an all-American pie, apples are a classic filling for fruity desserts. Here are the recipes we keep coming back to.

When you're weary of share plates and can't face another oxidised wine, it's comforting to return to suburban stalwarts, replete with classically trained chefs, cordial waitstaff and a drinks list favouring food friendliness over fads. Cinco's adjoining Piccolo Pizza (and siblings) helps pay the bills, but it's the finer side of dining that motivates Peter Stubbs, and finesse is applied to every plate. An entrée of burrata sits on fat slices of fig with a fold of prosciutto, basil leaves and salsa verde for extra depth, served with buttery brioche-style toast to soak up the juices. Clam vichyssoise is a backdrop for snapper, two delicate fillets topped with pencil-thin pieces of zucchini and a tempura-battered zucchini flower. The eye-catching Moorish-patterned padded back wall ensures acoustics are subdued. So feel free to enthuse loudly about your dessert of mango sorbet and almond mousse, set panna cotta-like in a lightly perfumed plum and peach soup.
