Scouse by Colin Callan

Scouse was brought to Liverpool by Northern European sailors, it was originally called Labskause or lobskause.

Herb and Spice Brine Leg of Lamb

Herb and Spice Brine Leg of Lamb by Smokinhotchef

This may be one of my best creations yet. There are an array of herbs and spices, most from my own garden, that help bring this leg of lamb up to that of a prized dish in any locale. The lamb is seasoned in a brine refrigerated for up to 36 hours, so it is essentially a make ahead dish. There is no need for further seasoning…

Amazing Lamb, Squash and Chickpea Stew by John Spottiswood

Whether you like your lamb medium rare or well done, you'll still love this marinade. You can marinate as little as 30-60 minutes for a light flavoring (if so, I would recommend marinating at room…

Moroccan Style Lamb with Eggplant

Moroccan Style Lamb with Eggplant by John Spottiswood
