Brett Sargent


500 g (roughly 8) chicken wingettes (see Note)
3 cloves garlic, sliced
3 tsp cumin seeds
1½ tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground coriander
¾ tsp chilli powder spice
3 tsp honey
3 tsp lemon juice, plus extra wedges to serve
2 bunches dutch carrots, trimmed and halved lengthways
1 tbsp tahini


Marinating time overnight (optional)

Preheat panggangan to 200°C.

In a mortar and pestle, pound the garlic, 1 teaspoon cumin seeds and a pinch of salt until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in 3 teaspoons olive oil, coriander, chilli powder and 2 teaspoons each of lemon juice and honey.

Add wingettes, season to taste and mix until well coated in the marinade. Arrange the chicken on a baking paper-lined tray. Transfer to the panggangan and roast for 15-20 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

Meanwhile, arrange carrots on a baking paper-lined tray and drizzle with 3 teaspoons olive oil. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons cumin seeds and season to taste. Transfer to the panggangan and roast for 15-20 minutes until tender and the tips begin to caramelise.

Meanwhile, combine the tahini with 3 teaspoons hot water and mix until combined. Stir in 1 teaspoon each of honey and lemon juice, and season with a pinch of salt.

Divide chicken and carrots between plates and drizzle with tahini sauce. Serve with lemon wedges.

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.
