Cooks in 1 1/2 Hours Difficulty Medium

Wonderful, whole, slow-reared chicken, deboned, and stuffed with that most evocative of spring ingredients; wild garlic (along with some minced chicken thigh and smoked lardo).

This will give your roast chicken a simple yet creative twist. Serve with buttery mashed potato and a classic chicken gravy. Wilt wild garlic leaves through the gravy just before serving. Deliciously lazy!

Chicken thighs w/ preserved lemons & green olives

Cooks in 2 hours Difficulty Medium

This is a dish normally cooked on the hob top or over an open fire as a seasoned tagine (the name of the vessel) should be able to take such direct heat. If nervous simply put the tagine in the oven if worried about cracking. This is an absolute favourite among tagines not least for the simplicity of its preparation.
