Stephen Gelly Farm Yurt
Recent post on an organic farm in the UK, Stephen Gelly Farm, that has guest accommodations of a Mongolian style yurt. I am noticing that yurts in the UK and Europe tend to be simpler camping yurts based on the old style, while yurts in North America tend to be the heavily engineered yurts that are permanent structures. This can't be all snow loads a building codes. What's with that?
Tracking down the link went through Elaine's British & Irish Food Blog that had pictures of braised lamb shank posted. Great fare for a traditional yurt.
Elaine writes: "There are many recipes for Braised Lamb Shanks but this is one of my favourites. The Lamb Shank is cooked very slowly in a good red wine (I emphasise good, never cook with wine you wouldn't drink) which tenderises the meat until, when it is cooked, the meat will quite literally fall from the bone."
