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.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

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.

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.

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.

Fun Dining at Room for a Pony, Hobart

Our restaurant critics' picks of the latest and best eats around the country right now: Fun Dining at Room for a Pony, Hobart.

Oskar Rossi and Frederica Andrisani's Fun Dining project at Hobart café Room for a Pony only runs for another couple of months, which makes securing a reservation a big priority. Their "Italian-ish" dinners, running from Thursday to Sunday each week, are offering some of the best eating in town. Rossi grew up in Hobart, trained at Vue de Monde, and met his Italian partner, Andrisani, in Europe where they both had been working in a string of Michelin-starred restaurants. The menu, which changes weekly, has six or seven smallish plates, including some handmade pasta or a risotto, a few larger dishes, and a choice of desserts. Last week, tempura oysters, the batter blackened with squid-ink and balanced with a yuzu emulsion, a dish of raw kingfish cleverly seasoned with soy and wasabi, and another of whiting with fennel, tomato and rouille that sang of the Mediterranean did it for us. It's a good option any night but with the dearth of serious dining in Hobart on Sundays, it becomes more of a godsend than a restaurant.
