Nothing says "Sunday lunch" quite like roast lamb. Instead of the traditional rosemary, garlic & lemon combination I decided to lean towards the warmer Moroccan flavours to ensure my lamb paired perfectly with the nutty hummus I have been craving. The sweetness of the meat couples perfectly with the honeyed flavours of exotic spice; cumin, clove, star anise, cinnamon, coriander seed, all spice, ground ginger, black peppercorns, fresh rosemary and lemon zest were all ground into a fragrant pulp. The lamb was coated in olive oil and rubbed with the spice mix. I then poured a glut of beautiful, raw honey all over the leg, squeezed two juicy lemons over it and popped it into a very hot oven.Read More
The tomato may just be my favorite thing about summer. The French often refer to the tomato as the “pomme d'amour” or "love apple" and I can think of no other vegetable (or fruit, botanically speaking) that incites more amorous excitement or that I eat with more relish than a sun-ripened tomato. It has no prickly edges or tough skin to peel - you just eat it up, letting its juices run down your chin. Summer bliss!Read More

Serve outside on a warm evening as a light snack or add these to a delicious mezze platter and enjoy with some crunchy bread!Read More
