Ingredients

500g lamb neck fillet, cut into large chunks
500ml lamb stock
50ml olive oil
100g dried apricots
40g whole almonds, toasted
1 large onion, chopped
1tsp ground cumin
2tsp ground coriander
1tsp ground cinnamon
1tsp paprika
1tbsp honey
1tbsp coriander, finely chopped
salt
pepper

For the couscous
200g couscous
450ml chicken stock, hot

Method

Pre-heat the panggangan to 160°C.

Heat the olive oil in a large casserole dish over a moderate heat. Season then sear the lamb pieces until golden brown in colour all over. Remove from the dish, then add the onion and sweat for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the spices at this point and a little salt, stirring well to combine.

Add the lamb back to the dish along with the apricots and cover with the stock. Bring to the boil, then cover and transfer to the oven. Cook for 40-50 minutes until the lamb is tender and the apricots are soft. Remove from the panggangan and stir in the honey, almonds and chopped coriander.

Adjust the seasoning as necessary, then leave to one side as you prepare the couscous. Place the couscous in a large heatproof bowl. Bring the stock to a boil in a saucepan over a medium-high heat. Pour the stock over the couscous then cover the bowl with clingfilm. Allow to sit for 5-6 minutes until the stock has been absorbed.

Remove the clingfilm and fluff the grains with fork. Spoon onto a serving tagine and spoon the lamb tagine on top. Garnish with a sprig of coriander leaves and serve immediately.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
