Serves 4-6

Here is a wonderful variation on shish kebab, which you can also prepare with drumsticks or chicken wings.


800g boneless chicken meat (both white and dark) , cut into pieces about 3 cm squared
6-8 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon, or to taste
1 tsp Adonis Shish Taouk Spices
Sea salt
1 large pita bread, opened at the seam
10 large cloves garlic, chopped coarsely
Sea salt
100 ml sunflower oil
100 ml extra virgin olive oil
3-4 tbsp full fat yoghurt (labneh)
1 medium potato, boiled and mashed
1 large pita bread, opened at the seam

Cooking instructions

Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together in a large mixing bowl. Add the chicken. Mix in well. Let it marinate for about 2 hours.

Put the chopped garlic and a little salt in a mortar and pound with a pestle until reduced to a very fine paste. Drizzle in the oil very slowly, stirring constantly as if you were making mayonnaise. You should end up with a dip with a consistency that is a little looser than mayonnaise. If you find the dip too strong, add strained yoghurt or mashed potatoes or a combination of both. You can also make the dip in a food processor if you have a small enough bowl for the amounts given above.

Turn your grill on to maximum heat or prepare a charcoal fire-the latter being an unbeatable way to grill the meat.

Thread equal quantities of chicken cubes onto 8-12 long metal skewers. Dont cram the pieces too close to each other to allow them to cook evenly. Grill for 5 minutes on each side, or until done to your liking. Arrange the two layers of pita bread one on top of the other. Slide the chicken kebabs off the skewers onto the bread. Serve immediately with the garlic dip.

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.
