Many people can’t stand it, but I’m rather fond of lamb. Rich, fatty and delicious, it’s a pungent, heady meat, and I can’t get enough of the stuff. As far as I’m concerned, it’s the Greeks who do lamb best,with their Kleftiko. Lamb kleftiko is a rustic, traditional Greek (Cypriot?) recipe made with super slow cooked lamb,  marinated in a blend of garlic, olive oil and lemon juice.

Literally meaning “stolen” lamb, tradition says that the name comes from that fact that raiders would steal lambs or goats and cook them in underground ovens to both seal the flavour, and avoid getting outed by the smell of it cooking. Modern Kleftiko is slowly cooked in parchment or foil, leaving you with a juicy and tender bit of lamb knuckle, shank or shoulder. Yum!

Here’s the news we didn’t post because dude, where’s my lamb?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
