Slow-cooked oven-baked lamb (kleftiko)

Moussaka | While moussaka is largely attributed to Greece, variations can also be found in Turkey, where it includes green capsicum, and Serbia, Bulgaria and Macedonia, where it is made with potatoes, pork and a yoghurt topping.

Chicken meatballs with preserved lemon and harissa relish | The relish recipe will make more than needed but it is completely delicious and lasts in the fridge for a couple of weeks at least.

Slow-cooked lamb shoulder with stout
Slow-cooked lamb shoulder with stout | It is not uncommon to see lamb paired with honey, especially in the Middle East and North Africa. In many Moroccan recipes, cooked lamb is drizzled with honey or added to tagines. The sweet, dark honey flavours in stout are perfect with lamb, and the combination makes for a great slow-cooked recipe. Don’t eat this straight from the oven — leave it for an hour or so and drink with a slightly chilled stout.

The other clever thing about this recipe…
