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.

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.

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.

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.

Your new best Pali

Santa Monica makes sense to Australians. It's close to LAX, the beaches are not dissimilar to ours and it's one of the few places in Los Angeles where people walk rather than drive. Now the beachside locale's already impressive hotel choices are bolstered by the arrival of hotelier Avi Brosh's hip Palihouse group. The new Palihouse Santa Monica is now open and, like preceding Palihouses (there's one in West Hollywood and on Melrose Avenue), it embraces its roots, in this case the Spanish Colonial Revival-style former apartment block it calls home. The generous proportions of the 1927 building, officially classified a historic landmark by the City of Santa Monica, means that most of the 36 guest rooms are blessed with kitchens and walk-in robes. There's a sense of whimsy notable in the design, achieved with bespoke wallpapers and custom-designed furniture. If the lighthearted yet professional service makes you want to stay a little longer, rooms can be booked for three-month stays. Opening rates from $350 for a classic guest suite. Palihouse Santa Monica, 1001 Third St, Santa Monica, California.
