Slow-roast Shoulder of Lamb with Palestinian Spices March 07 2021

This show-stopping roast is a great dish for entertaining. When slow-roasted in this way, the lamb becomes so meltingly soft that it falls off the bone, perfect for stuffing into pockets of flatbread alongside salads, yogurt and pickles, shawarma-style. Start it the night before, so the marinade has a chance to infuse the lamb.

Pappardelle with hare, red wine & cacao regù September 10 2020

The trigger for this recipe is the typically northern Italian way of braising hare (lepre) in salmi. They put a hare into a wine marinade with onions, celery, juniper berries and and rosemary, to soften the flavour of the strong-tasting meat as well as tenderising it. Then the important thing is to let the hare cook very slowly.

Pheasant ramen September 10 2020

The classic Japanese noodle soup is even more moreish when made with tasty roasted pheasant breasts instead of chicken. If you can’t find fresh galangal, use galangal paste as a substitute. Don’t worry, once you’ve made ramen once, you’ll want to again and again so none will go to waste!
