Kleftiko is a dish reserved for special occasions that showcases simple, hearty Greek cooking at its very best. Lamb shoulder is coated in a mix of herbs - including fragrant oregano - then cooked with whole sticks of cinnamon and bay leaves on a bed of potatoes to soak up all the aromatic lamb juices. The slow roasting technique means you can get on with the side dishes while the kleftiko cooks until it's incredibly tender. For dessert, we have a traditional Greek delicacy - donuts (loukoumades) soaked in spiced syrup, coated with sesame seeds and served with a refreshing Greek yogurt ice cream.
