Olivier Rousselle, Executive Chef at Luxe Hotels, based in Los Angeles, has created a Moroccan-style lamb dish with apricots, zucchini, peas, lemon, and cashews. He says: "It's a great recipe for summer because it's a great combination of summer ingredients and Moroccan spices."

• salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Combine meat, spices, onion, ginger, and olive oil and pour in enough water to just cover it. Bring water to a boil, reduce the heat, cover slow-cooker with a lid and cook gently for about 1 hour.
2. Season the cooking juices with salt and pepper. Add remaining ingredients for 15 more minutes.
3. When the vegetables break down and meat is soft, enjoy with a flat bread and a Moroccan rose wine.Back to top
