Lamb Tagine from Kasbah Grill
The first person who educated me that tagine is first, a cooking vessel before its namesake was passed on to the stew it helps cook was Brittany. In October we were eating at a delicious Moroccan restaurant (see link in caption) in Irving/Dallas, Texas and she told us she used to have a “tagine.” Puzzled, knowing that three of the dishes ordered by us were tagines, I thought, well I used to have a donut, but then I ate it! Or I used to have a lot of foods, but them things don’t last very long! She then explained to my ignorant self that the dish is named after the pot used.
Glad I could share the info :) ! Here is the wikipedia link.
The inspiration behind this week’s FFD was Anthony Bourdain. Still reading his Cook’s Tour, I came across a definitive passage on tagines last night. So I thought I’d also share an excerpt.
