Moroccan Lamb and Fig Tajine

Lamb, Fig, and Almond Tajine Side

A few months ago we went to have dinner at Ksar Essaoussan in Marrakech. It’s a riad that has been remade into a restaurant, and unlike many riads here, has no rooms for guests – it’s purely somewhere to just enjoy a good meal. Just finding it was an exercise – and we’re quite familiar […]

Jamaican Lamb Curry and Roti

Jamaican Lamb Curry

 The end of December is here and that means it’s time for my Around the World in 12 Dishes post.
