We’re working our way through British chef and “lightening-up” empress Lorraine Pascale’s new book, Everyday Easy. Just because it’s light and simple doesn’t mean it can’t be flavor-packed and beautiful. 

Now, this is a slow-cook but very fast-prep dish, so I thought I would add it to the book. I made this at home one Sunday, just lobbing all of the ingredients into a pot and leaving it to cook for ages. I was not expecting anything amazing, just thinking about a bit of lamb for dinner. But when it was cooked, I tasted a little and nearly ate the whole lot and did the little dance that people sometimes do when they taste something really good. When I brought the lamb, basically half-eaten, to my hungry family, they were not amused, to say the least, and I ended up having to sling some chops on the grill to make up for it. I am not ashamed to admit that I love a good Australian Chardonnay, and its powerful flavors work well in this dish. Having said that, any other white wine would be great to cook with, too.
