a very good friend to have
Tamer is a very good friend to have. I knew him briefly in Montreal and was pleased to discover that he and his family now lived local to us in Calgary. One of the things he has invited our family to has been lamb roastings.
As he is from Egypt, one way of celebrating his culture and sharing it is through food. Roasted lamb requires the right tools and so after discovering that purchasing a charcoal spit cost the same as renting one three times, he went ahead and got properly equipped.
The feast in September was well attended and very well enjoyed. One of the talking points were the seared lamb testicles (below). I tried some and if I could have gotten beyond the idea and beyond the texture, I'm sure they were very tasty.
