Takes: 40 mins to prepare and 1 hr 30 mins to cook
Serves: 4


3 aubergines, sliced into 1cm lengths
olive oil
1 onion, peeled and sliced
1 garlic clove, sliced
500g lamb mince
1tbsp tomato puree
1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes
75ml white wine
1tsp ground cinnamon

For the topping
75g butter
75g plain flour
500ml milk
50g Kefalotyri, Parmesan or strong Cheddar cheese grated
freshly grated nutmeg
2 eggs, beaten

Sprinkle the aubergines with a little salt in a colander and leave, pressed down with a plate and a weight, to drain off any excess moisture for 30 minutes. (This prevents them soaking up too much oil).

Preheat the panggangan to 180°C, 350°F, Gas 4.

Heat 1tbsp oil in a pan and fry the onion and garlic for about five minutes. Turn the heat up a little, add the lamb mince and cook until browned, breaking any lumps up with a wooden spoon. Stir in the tomato puree and cook out for one minute. Add the tomatoes, wine and cinnamon and allow to bubble up. Season. Reduce the heat to its lowest, then simmer for around 30 minutes until the mixture has thickened.

Heat some olive oil in a frying pan and fry the aubergines in batches on each side until golden brown. Drain each batch on kitchen paper.

Make the topping: Melt the butter in a saucepan, then stir in the flour until you have a smooth paste. Whisk in the milk a little at a time, stirring until the sauce is smooth and lump-free. Allow to simmer very gently for 10 minutes or so to cook out the flour, then stir in the cheese and a little nutmeg. Allow to cool.

Layer the meat sauce and aubergines in a deep casserole, finishing with a layer of aubergines. Whisk the eggs into the cheese sauce then spoon over the aubergines.

Bake in the panggangan for around 40 minutes until the top is golden and puffed up. Leave to rest once cooked for 10 minutes to allow the dish to settle.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
