Kulon ma’-Bun’wra (Pan-Roast Lamb and Tomato)

This is an adaptation of a rare but famed dish from Arrakis, served at family celebrations and community gatherings. The name simply means “kulon with bun’wra”: the kulon is a domesticated equine, the meat of which takes particularly well to spice; bun’wra is a savory fruit imported from tropical climates, as it obviously does not yet grow on Arrakis. The nearest Terran equivalent is “Pan-Roast Lamb and Tomato”, using the rich aromatic Persian spice mix, advieh, and the Bengali whole-spice blend, panch phoron. It is of course difficult to approximate the flavors and aromas of this dish with local ingredients, but I’ve tried my best using things one can find easily.

Something a little lighter, with the distinctive herbaceous flavor of tarragon enriching a cream sauce – subtle and delicious, and pretty easy to make!

Damn! Lamb Chops!

It’s summer, and I’ve been grilling a lot over on Quince Street (you should come by sometime).  This 2015 creation was a big hit, everyone said the same thing upon the first bite… so the name for this dish came easy.

Strange Chicken

The name for this dish is a terrible pun derived from the French poulet étrangère, meaning “foreign chicken” – it is a combination of flavors from several disparate cuisines, including French, Caribbean, and southeast Asian elements.  A lively combination of savory, sweet, and spicy flavors, for a little somethin’ different.
