Topic: Favourite meal if you could have it in front of you now

Half a roast chicken (well seasoned), chopped salad with balsamic dressing.  Big glass of iced water.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

A mix grill.   And it better have two lamb chops on it.

Lamb Kleftiko from a restaurant I really like in Crete. They don't have a menu, just cook whatever they feel like doing on the day and you have to go in the kitchen and point at what you want.

Is that the thick stew with cheese and potatoes?

Nice.  Like a polony but peppery and with Pearl barley in.  Lovely.  The Irish one is nicer than the Scots one as they use too many oats and it tends to break down.  They sell it in Morribogs.  By Galtee.

Edited because it isn't anything like polonium as far as I know.

Re: Favourite meal if you could have it in front of you now

I had a rather special tea last night.

Chicken wellington - breast wrapped in Prosciutto with pesto and goats cheese and puff pastry obvs.  With Dauphinoise pots and minted peas, broccoli and green beans covered in a leek and bacon sauce.

I was nailed to the sofa after.  Fucking stuffed.

Sounds bloody lovely

Late home from work so I fried off some chicken thighs in butter and garlic and steamed some carrots/broccoli/green beans.  Sauce was a couple of glasses of Picpoul de Pinet

https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/lamb-kleftiko

Yeah its basically slow roasted lamb, garlic, lemons, spuds and rosemary in a greaseproof paper parcel to keep the flavour and moisture in. I think some people add feta also. The first time I tried it I burst out laughing cos it tasted so good. Just ridiculous . I've tried making it at home and it was really nice but nowhere near. I'd have it with a heavy malbec if I could cos a lot of greek wine can be a bit manky unless you get lucky.

Great thread for making a fella hungry as fuck with lunch way off in the distance.

Not sure I'd use a leg of lamb - I'd say that was better cooked more quickly and left pink

I'm sure you'd be able to use shoulder?  Better for slow roasting and the extra fat would melt into lusciousness

I'm going to do it this weekend on the strength of this thread.  Greek salad and lots of heavy red wine to wash it down with

Yeah I used shoulder when I tried Ray. I did it in the slow cooker without faffing about with the parcel bit. Good luck, let us know how it pans out. Think maybe I will use the paper in the oven next time.

Did you do the whole 24 hr marinade thing???

It looks bloody amazing.  I think I'll have a go next week.
