Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Seasonings

Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Seasonings by John Spottiswood

This was a wonderful leg of lamb that I cooked for a Holiday gathering this year. I took a base recipe for Moroccan Roast Lamb from one of my favorite cookbooks - Recipes from Morocco by Sufo. I then added roast potatoes and created a gravy from the drippings. It couldn't have come out much better. Everyone raved about it. I used…

Scouse

Scouse by Colin Callan

Scouse was brought to Liverpool by Northern European sailors, it was originally called Labskause or lobskause. This was finally shortened to Skause and over time the spelling changed to the more Anglicised version we know and love today, Scouse. Interesting Note: The Danish name is "skipper labskovs". In Swedish, it's "kallops".…

Lamb Meatball and Fava Bean Tagine / Morocco

Lamb Meatball and Fava Bean Tagine / Morocco by Amos Miller

This is truly a hand-crafted meal - it takes time. I know that only the most devoted will make this. But it is nothing short of spectacular and was my favorite Spring dish. I'd eat it weekly. This is how I recall Mina made for me when I lived in Marrakech. I'm sharing it just because it is a personal favorite and, for guests,…

Moroccan Style Lamb with Eggplant

Moroccan Style Lamb with Eggplant by John Spottiswood

This is another great recipe from the best of the San Francisco Chronicle. The combination of the lamb and eggplant with the rich and wonderful lemon infused sauce is just amazing. Meaty lamb shanks or leg meat are cooked in aromatic liquid before being roasted over slices of eggplant. I think the original recipe over weighted the…

Sumptuous Georgian Lamb Stew

Sumptuous Georgian Lamb Stew by John Spottiswood

Ohhhh this was yummy. Really, if you are at least tolerant of lamb, you should try this. And if you love lamb like I do, you are in for a huge treat. I could not get enough of the sauce in this stew. I love how the Georgian stews often have you blend up huge amounts of cilantro and basil and toss them in. It gives the stew an…

Grilled Lamb Kebabs

Grilled Lamb Kebabs by John Spottiswood

These light Moroccan seasonings produce extremely flavorful lamb. They enhance the natural flavor of the lamb without overwhelming it. 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…

Lamb Stew with Tomatoes and Spices

Lamb Stew with Tomatoes and Spices by John Spottiswood

This is a succulent dish. It's another amazing recipe I adapted from Stews, Bogs and Burgoos by James Villas. The original recipe is for braised lamb shanks. We were serving 8 at a cabin and wanted to be able to use a slow cooker, so we substituted leg of lamb instead. The result was delicious. The key is the flavor of the…

Barbecuing Meat the Sicilian Way

Barbecuing Meat the Sicilian Way by I Sicilian

Summer days are great barbecue days. Are American barbecuers spoiled? Having lived almost 40 years in the US of A, I include myself in this picture. For the average American household barbecuing with coals seems to be too much trouble. It seems that 63% of Americans prefer gas grilling over charcoal. It is just so much easier…

Moroccan Lamb Kabobs with Chickpea and Apricot Couscous

Moroccan Lamb Kabobs with Chickpea and Apricot Couscous by Hungry Jenny

These are really quick to make and the chickpea and apricot salad can be whipped up whilst the kabobs are grilling. This serves 2 so you can either make 8 kabob balls for a skewer each, or 16 smaller kabob balls for 2 skewers each! http://hungryjenny.blogspot.com/2010/08/say-no-to-takeaway-kick-up-lamb-kabob.html

Lamb Tagine with Tomatoes and Roasted Eggplant

Lamb Tagine with Tomatoes and Roasted Eggplant by John Spottiswood

This is a Mediterranean spirited Tagine. It reminds me of the great lamb stews found from Morocco all the way to Afghanistan. I adapted it from a recipe in Paula Wolfort's great "The Food of Morocco" cookbook. Paula quotes chef Lucien Vanel as saying "Lamb, tomatoes, eggplant and garlic is a a combination before which we must all…
