Dumplings may be bite-sized, but they pack a flavourful punch. Here are seven mouth-watering recipes, from Korean mandu to classic Chinese-style steamed dumplings.

Twelve-hour Indian-spiced lamb shoulder with saffron pilaf

As the name indicates, this dish requires planning ahead. That said, the long cooking time is offset by simple preparation, with melt-in-the-mouth textures and deep flavours the pay-offs. Start this recipe two days ahead to marinate and roast the lamb.

First look: Cirrus, Sydney

Ahead of opening Cirrus at Barangaroo, Brent Savage and Nick Hildebrandt talk us through their design inspirations and some of their favourite dishes.

Great breakfast ideas - part two

44 Pupusas, Gorman House markets
Parting with these tortillas is especially tough when you know that you won't set eyes on them again for a full week. They're a specialty of the Salvadoran food stall at the Saturday morning markets at the Gorman House arts centre. Filled with refried beans, cheese or both and slathered with chilli sauce, they're a robust start to the day, perfect for chillier mornings. Gorman House Markets, Saturdays, 10am-3pm, Gorman House, Ainslie Ave, Braddon, ACT

45 The German farmer's breakfast, EU Café
The German farmer's breakfast is exactly as far from dainty as it sounds - an honest and hearty serve of roughly chopped potato, egg, ham, and other farm-fresh produce. If you're up for further European enlargement, consider crossing the Channel for the EU Café's Big Ben Breakfast. 2/4 Barker St, Griffith, ACT, (02) 6295 6915

46 Crumpets, The Chelsea
You know those factory-made round crumpets? These are nothing like that. Oval shaped, light and fluffy on top, dense and chewy on the bottom, there are two to a serve and they're beautifully partnered with a choice of organic honey or raspberry butter. Another reason to get up in the morning. The Chelsea, The Barracks, Shop 2, 5 Petrie Tce, Paddington, (07) 3367 1288

47 Natto rice bowl, Chado
It's a bit of a stretch because Chado isn't technically open for breakfast (it opens at 11am), but one person's lunchtime is another person's breakfast, and this natto rice bowl, which celebrates the mucilaginous pleasure of fermented soy beans, is a great savoury breakfast - pure umami. 134 Elizabeth St, Hobart, Tas, (03) 6231 6411

48 Assiette of roast mushrooms, Mantra on King William
The open fireplace is welcoming through winter, and locals tend to linger on Sunday mornings, browsing over newspapers and good coffee while savouring hearty breakfast plates, such as a rich mixture of roasted portobello, swiss brown, white and field mushrooms on thick slices of fig and fennel bread, topped with parmesan, rocket and walnuts. 36 King William Rd, Goodwood, SA, (08) 8377 7201

49 Har gau, Fisherman's Wharf Seafood Restaurant
Where better to seek the best prawn dumplings than at the nation's best-situated yum cha restaurant? Here, in a space replete with windows and water views atop Sydney Fish Market, you'll find har gau resembling happy little clouds packed with contradictions of lightness and density, softness and crunch. Now pass the chilli sauce. Level 1, Sydney Fish Market, Bank St, Pyrmont, (02) 9660 9888
 
50 BLT, Pearl Cafe
It's a BLT but not as you know it: in place of bacon we find sobrasada, Spain's spreadable pork salami, thickly smeared on organic bread. Where you'd normally find iceberg, there's a neat thatch of locally grown rocket splashed with EVOO and a sploosh of creamy organic quark. Chef Haidee Petersen's house-made organic green tomato pickle tops it all off. Pearl Cafe. 28 Logan Rd, Wooloongabba, Qld, (07) 3392 3300

51 Piña colada pancakes, Grub Street Eatery
Who doesn't love a breakfast dessert, especially when its coconut and pineapple flavours bring back memories of cocktail indulgences. A stack of coconut pancakes sits on a puddle of zingy and zesty lime curd with coconut ice-cream and pineapple hot from the grill. Grub Street Eatery, 440 Samford Rd, Gaythorne, Qld, (07) 3855 9580

52 Soft-boiled eggs and soldiers, The Hardware Société
It's play-time for grown-ups: two textbook soft-boiled eggs teamed with three toasted sourdough soldiers topped with an ever-changing variety of good stuff, perhaps trout tartare, or asparagus and Valdeón, or chorizo and romesco. 120 Hardware St, Melbourne, Vic, (03) 9078 5992
