Yesterday we went to a proper old-fashioned local butcher - due to Covid social distancing rules its one person/household in the shop at a time which made for a very relaxed and attentive shopping experience. I'd got some charcoal briquettes delivered earlier in the week so we were looking for...
Serves 4-5 | Preparation & cooking time ~45 min
I had pistachios left from the challenge; I added some into meatballs.
600 g (~21 oz) minced meat/poultry (I used turkey and lamb)
1 yellow/brown onion
6 cloves of garlic
100 ml double/heavy cream
This is a rather rich creamy tasting dish. Fresh turmeric has a wonderfully subtle fragrant flavour which infuses into the lamb. The tangy mango powder offsets the richness of the sauce. If you can’t obtain mango powder you could use tamarind paste (adjust the amount, to taste).
Probably an impossible question but which is preferred ? I love both, with a casserole there’s the bonus of the gravy but then with the roast I sometimes feel that the flavours that leached out into the casserole to make that delicious sauce stays in the joint for more flavourful meat .... I’d...

Hi chaps, hope you're all keeping well in these tricky times. Simple problem here that, of course, I can solve but thought I'd seek opinions from you clever people. I bought a lamb 'pack' and it included 3 chump chops they will need to feed the two of us as my wife will spot it if I attempt to...

Prebonata is an unusual Corsican dish, often made with beef or kid. Most recipes (and there are very few that I could find on-line) add the juniper berries to the sauce. Here I decided to marinate the lamb in red wine and juniper to increase the depth of flavour. I used red peppers (as the...
Inspired by Moroccan cooking, this is a sort of tagine and its easy to make. The prunes provide a lovely sweet flavour which is balanced by the pickled lemons. Juniper and saffron add a subtle, earthy dimension. I use home made ras el hanout but a ready prepared spice mix is easily available in...
