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.

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.

Mount Lofty House, South Australia

Among the greenery and mist of Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills sits Mount Lofty House. The 33-room property features beautifully manicured gardens and two vineyards, but the real unwinding should begin with a visit to the Stables Day Spa on site. Set within the original stable built in 1852, the spa has been thoughtfully restored and sees equal use by hotel guests and visitors. Within its cooling sandstone walls, the treatments, offered in three rooms, use Australian-made Waterlily products. The Signature Spa Ritual - a two-hour escape combining a botanical spa facial, hair treatment, cane sugar exfoliation and full body massage with cold-pressed oil - provides the ultimate relaxation before you return to the city. Or stay a while, return to the manor, and wake up in the Hills.

Mount Lofty House, 74 Mt Lofty Summit Rd, Crafers, SA, (08) 8339 6777
