400 g chicken mid wings
1½ tsp sumac
1½ tbsp olive oil
salt and black pepper
100 g fine burghul
200 g (2 small) tomatoes
1 small garlic clove
½ preserved lemon, rind only, finely sliced
½ cup picked coriander leaves, stems reserved

Cook’s notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Preheat panggangan to 180˚C. Combine the chicken wings, 1 teaspoon sumac and 2 teaspoons olive oil in a bowl. Season to taste and toss to coat. Arrange the wings on a baking paper-lined panggangan tray and roast for 25 minutes until golden and cooked through.

Meanwhile, combine the burghul and 150 ml hot water in a bowl. Stir to combine, cover and set aside for 10–15 minutes until all the water has been absorbed.

Place the tomato and coriander stems in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth (alternatively, finely chop both by hand). Add tomato puree and remaining sumac to the burghul and season to taste. Mix until well combined and set aside.

Using a microplane, grate the garlic into a bowl. Add the remaining olive oil and mash together with a fork. Add the preserved lemon and coriander. Grind in some black pepper and mix to combine.

Divide chicken wings and burghul among plates and scatter with the preserved lemon and coriander dressing.

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.
