Sharing a top-secret recipe for Lamb and Potatoes.

I LOVE cooking but I also love to have a night off every now and then and let someone else cook for me. So when my sister Stacey invited us around for dinner on the weekend I knew we would be in for a treat as her husband Wade is a fabulous cook. All we had to do was supply the nibblies and some wine!

We brought over the cheese and crackers and some Sicilian Olives that had been marinated in lemon and garlic, some caper berries and some gorgeous Australian sparkling wine!

While we were enjoying some nibblies Wade was hiding in the kitchen cooking up a storm.

He was a bit secretive about everything so while he wasn't looking I quickly snapped some pictures of what was on the menu so I could share it with you, my new and old Friday Friends:

I knew that this was going to be a risky thing to do but I was willing to take that risk so that I could share Wade's top secret recipes with you all today.

Wade was preparing Lamb wrapped in filo pastry and served on a bed of pureed peas with a side dish of roasted kipfler potatoes with cumin and fennel seeds! YUMMY!

I was lucky enough to take some pictures of the ingredients.

I even had time to photograph all of the instructions!

While Wade was wrapping the lamb in prosciutto I surreptitiously took some more pictures...
Flash off of course! 

I don't think he has caught on that I am spying on him!

It went very well with a 2008 Shiraz from McLaren Vale, which is about 40 minutes from 
South Australia’s Capital city, Adelaide.


Luckily I didn't get caught taking all of these pictures and sharing this recipe with you today. You know how temperamental these male chefs are!  I will let you know next time Wade cooks and I will risk life and limb to share more fabulous recipes with you. Blogging is risky business but when you are passionate about what you do, well, you are willing to sacrifice anything!

Thanks for a fabulous evening Stacey and Wade! See you same time tomorrow night?

Best wishes,
