This recipe makes me travel just by its smell and by its look. If I close my eyes when I’m sitting with this dish in the middle of the table, I can easily imagine how it would feel to be in a warm, crowded and noisy tavern in Greece. Most of the time this recipe will be made with Lamb’s legs, but this time I made it with Lamb Shanks and I like it a lot! The Arni Youvetsu is a Sunday dish and quite honestly… I think it’s perfect!!! Is there a better day to spend your time cooking and enjoying some comfort food like this with peoples you love? I don’t think so.
What I prefer about Italian food is the simplicity. Fresh ingredients, love and wine (Oh! and amaro for Jean-Felix’s digestif). That’s all you need! When we were there, every time we were in a grocery store, we were feeling like kids in a toy store. All the products you can find in there, it’s unbelievable. I could have spent my entire day shopping for food. They have this amazing way to put some love everywhere and make you feel like you need to buy everything. Them beautiful packaging and all the diversity… OHHH GOD I want to go back now!
Oh … and have you ever tried to translate the name of these Italian pasta in French??? HÉHÉHÉ You will see!
