Finally. It is actually, officially autumn. What’s even better is that it’s starting to feel like autumn in Atlanta. Of course, that means highs in the 70′s and lows of about 68, but hey, that’s way better than highs in the 80′s. I can even occasionally throw on a long-sleeve shirt and not suffer from heatstroke. It’s that good time of year, and in honor of the first full week of fall, I present to you one of my current favorite comfort dishes: Slow-Roasted Lamb with Kale, Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas. This is one of those fantastic one-pot dishes that takes minimal effort and tastes great. It’s a complete meal with protein, veg and starch. It takes a while to

Sous Vide Lamb-64

Oh lamb. How lovely you are. Such a tender, wonderful meat. The trouble with lamb is that is can be tricky to cook.

Like a lot of comfort food, Shephard’s Pie is a British peasant dish that was meant to use up the leftovers from a big supper. Now you might be thinking “Lamb?

You can use ground beef or lamb, but since I was using leftovers I just chopped up the meat and it’s scrumptious. One last thing – I only had 1/2 lb of lamb leftovers so, while the full recipe is

Mmmmmm. Lamb. In day 3 of the week of British Food Extravaganza, we’re going to visit Wales for a delicious leg of lamb. In America, lamb tends to be a special occasion sort of protein. That’s probably because we’re more of a cattle country so lamb tends to be significantly more expensive than beef, pork or chicken. However, in Great Britain (and especially in Wales), there are fleecy flocks of lamb and sheep clambering all over the rocky hillsides, so lamb is seen on the table much more often. This is a fantastic recipe I acquired from a website called The Great British Kitchen. It is both easy and super delicious, so you should give it a try if you
