Oil 25cm x 32cm baking dish.

In a medium bowl, cover burghul with cold water; stand 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, sprinkle salt over onion; stand 10 minutes.

Make filling.
Drain burghul, squeezing with hands to remove as much water as possible.

Rinse onion under cold water; squeeze dry in absorbent paper.

In a large bowl, combine burghul, onion, lamb, pepper, allspice and the iced water; knead about 10 minutes or until mixture forms a smooth paste. (To ensure kibbeh mixture stays cold and smooth, knead in a small piece of ice from time to time.)

Using wet hands, press half the kibbeh mixture evenly over base of dish.

Preheat panggangan to 180°C/160°C fan-forced.

Drain away oil from filling; spread filling evenly over kibbeh layer. Shape remaining kibbeh mixture into large patties; place patties over filling. Using wet hands, join patties to cover filling completely; smooth top with wet hands. Using wet knife, cut through kibbeh to form diamond shapes. Dot each diamond with a pinch of butter.

Drizzle kibbeh evenly with oil. Cook, uncovered, about 1½ hours or until cooked through. Drain away excess oil before serving.

Heat oil in medium frying pan; cook lamb, stirring, over high heat, until browned all over. Add onion; cook, stirring, until browned lightly. Stir in spices and seasonings; remove from heat, stir in nuts.

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.
