Sunday, Sept. 15, With Jacques

I thought you would want to know what I made. Lamb shanks with white beans. I might just devote the following weeks to all the lamb recipes in Essential Pepin. I just adore lamb. And beans. Which reminds me that Sam has all but declared himself a vegetarian. He says that animals are our friends and we have to protect them and not eat them. Where does he get such ideas? Are the Wild Kratts vegetarians?

I also made a salad - that I forgot to photograph. It was so simple and so good: arugula with oil-cured olives and croutons, dressed with lemon juice and olive oil. I just adore oil-cured olives. And arugula, or rocket, as they say in Jolly Old England.                        


  1. I've never tried lamb with beans. My mom always made beans with ham or ham hocks, which was delicious, too. I'll never be able to cook like Pepin, but he is a lot of fun to watch!

  2. Yes, beans with ham hocks is also delicious. You can't go wrong with a porky flavor, that's for sure.
