The word "tagine" refers to both a North African cooking pot with a conical lid, and the aromatic stew traditionally cooked inside. Tagine, the stew, classically incorporates savory and sweet ingredients to make a complex dish with a richly spiced sauce. Here, dried apricots, cinnamon, nutmeg and a sprinkling of almonds toasted in butter provide the sweetness, while lamb, saffron, turmeric, tomato paste and a bright garnish of scallions, herbs and lemon juice make it deeply savory. If you have a tagine, the pot, feel free to use it here. Otherwise, a Dutch oven or a different large pot with a tightfitting lid will work well. This recipe is part of The New Essentials of French Cooking, a guide to definitive dishes every modern cook should master. Buy the book.

- In a large bowl, combine lamb and 2 teaspoons salt. Let sit at room temperature at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
- In a small pot, bring stock to a boil. Remove from heat, add apricots, and let sit at least 15 minutes.
- Heat oven to 325 degrees. In a tagine, Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot with a tightfitting lid, warm 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat until hot. Working in batches, add lamb to pot, leaving room around each piece (this will help them brown). Cook until well browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer pieces to a plate as they brown.
- Drain fat, if necessary, leaving just enough to coat the bottom of the pot. Add onions and 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cook until soft, about 8 minutes. Add tomato paste, ginger, 1 cinnamon stick and the spices, and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add lamb and any juices on the plate, the apricots and stock, and half the cilantro. Cover pot with foil and then its lid, and cook in oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until lamb is tender, turning it occasionally. (If using a tagine, you don't need to use foil.) Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary.
- Meanwhile, in a small skillet, heat butter and 1 cinnamon stick over medium heat. Add almonds and 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cook until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Discard cinnamon stick.
- To serve, transfer lamb and juices to a serving platter. Top with toasted almonds and any butter left in the small skillet, scallions, parsley and remaining cilantro. Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice to taste. Serve with flatbread or couscous, if desired.

SIMON PEGG'S LAMB TAGINE
Inspired by Simon's time spent on location in Marrakech, I've created this beautiful lamb tagine to transport him right back to the wonderful meals he enjoyed at the family-run hole-in-the-wall-style restaurants at the edge of the Medina. With brilliant spices and incredible, subtle aromas, it's seriously tasty stuff!

- In a small bowl, cover the saffron with 2 tablespoons of boiling water and leave to steep. Destone the prunes, place in a separate bowl and just cover with boiling water so the plump up.
- Peel and finely chop the onions and garlic, then season with the ground ginger and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper.
- Place a tagine or large casserole pan on a medium heat with 2 tablespoons of oil, then add the cinnamon for 1 minute to flavour the oil. Add the lamb, season with salt and pepper, then cook for 5 minutes, or until browned all over, stirring regularly.
- Push the meat to one side of the pan, placing the cinnamon stick on top, then add the seasoned onion and garlic alongside. Cook for 5 minutes, or until softened and caramelized, stirring occasionally.
- Gently scrub the courgettes and carrots, keeping them whole, peel and deseed the squash, then chop into 3cm chunks, and add it all to the pan. Pour in the prunes, saffron and all the soaking water, then top up with 200ml of water, and stir well.
- Bring to the boil, then cover and cook on a low heat for 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours, or until the lamb is tender and the veg are cooked through, stirring occasionally and adding splashes of water to loosen, if needed. Taste and season to perfection.
- Meanwhile, place the couscous in a bowl, season with salt and add the cloves, then just cover with boiling water and a drizzle of oil. Pop a plate on top and leave for 5 to 10 minutes to fluff up, then use a fork to fluff up again.
- Fold the harissa through the yoghurt. Serve the tagine, couscous and flatbreads with the harissa yoghurt, finishing with a scattering of mint leaves.

MOROCCAN LAMB TAGINE
One of my favorite winter dinners is a warm, satisfying bowl of stew. And I'm not alone; if you think about it, each nationality has its own version of meat and vegetables simmered in one big pot, whether it's classic Irish beef stew or French beef bourguignonne or Texas chili. One night I came across a recipe for Moroccan lamb tagine in, of all places, an Australian cookbook called Bills Sydney Food. I was feeling adventurous and decided to play around with my own version of it using lamb shanks, Yukon Gold potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut squash and lots of Eastern spices. I can't think of a more delicious, comforting dinner to serve to family or friends on a cold night. And the best part is that you can make the entire pot a day ahead of time, refrigerate it and just reheat it slowly on top of the stove. All you'll need to make that night is some couscous!

- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a very large (12-to-13-inch) pot or Dutch oven, such as Le Creuset. Pat the lamb shanks dry with paper towels. In batches, add the lamb shanks to the pot and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side, until they are nicely browned. Transfer to a plate and brown the remaining shanks, adding a little more oil, if necessary. Transfer all the shanks to the plate and set aside.
- Add the onions and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, adding more oil, if necessary. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for just 30 seconds. Add the chili powder, turmeric, cumin, cardamom and cinnamon and cook for one minute. Stir in the tomatoes and their liquid, the chicken stock, brown sugar, lime, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Add the potatoes, butternut squash and sweet potatoes and bring to a boil. Place the lamb shanks in the pot, spooning some of the sauce and vegetables over the shanks. (They will not be completely submerged.) Cover the pot and bake for 3 hours, until the lamb shanks are very tender. Serve hot with couscous.
LAMB TAGINE WITH CARROTS AND TURNIPS
- Toss the lamb with the flour, coriander, cumin, ginger, allspice, cinnamon and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a large bowl.
- Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the lamb, in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding, and brown well on all sides, about 6 minutes per batch.
- Add the onion and garlic to the pot and cook, stirring, until the onions have softened slightly, about 3 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Add the pomegranate juice and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add 2 cups water and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook at a bare simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes.
- Add the carrots and turnips and continue to cook, covered, until the lamb is tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour more. Stir in the cilantro and parsley and season with salt.
- Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and serve.
When I made this dish I left the kitchen window open. The smell attracted several male neighbors, and when my husband came in, he said that it smelled so good, he hoped it was coming from our house and not from someone else's! Serve with my Moroccan Couscous and Cucumber Raita on this site.

- Place diced lamb in a bowl, toss with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, and set aside. In a large resealable bag, toss together the paprika, turmeric, cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, salt, ginger, saffron, garlic powder, and coriander; mix well. Add the lamb to the bag, and toss around to coat well. Refrigerate at least 8 hours, preferably overnight.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add 1/3 of the lamb, and brown well. Remove to a plate, and repeat with remaining lamb. Add onions and carrots to the pot and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the fresh garlic and ginger; continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes. Return the lamb to the pot and stir in the lemon zest, chicken broth, tomato paste, and honey. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the meat is tender.
- If the consistency of the tagine is too thin, you may thicken it with a mixture of cornstarch and water during the last 5 minutes.

- Toss the lamb pieces with the ras el hanout and a large pinch of salt to coat. Will keep chilled for up to 4 hrs. Heat the oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole over a medium heat and brown the lamb on all sides. (You will need to do this in batches.) Scoop onto a plate using a slotted spoon and set aside, then cook the onions and carrots in the pan for 10-12 mins until soft and golden, adding a drizzle more oil if the pan is dry. Add the garlic and ginger, and cook for 2 mins more, then stir in the 2 tbsp harissa and preserved lemon. Cook for another minute until the vegetables are coated in the mixture and sticky. Add the cinnamon, then tip in the tomatoes and bring to a simmer.
- Cook for a few minutes more until reduced to a thick paste. Tip the lamb and its resting juices back into the pan and pour over the stock. Season and return to a simmer. Put the lid on the casserole and transfer to the oven to cook for 1 hr.
- Stir in the chickpeas and apricots, if using, cover again and return to the oven for 1 hr until the lamb is tender. Season, then leave the tagine to stand for 10 mins. Will keep chilled for up to three days or frozen for three months. Leave to cool first. Defrost in the fridge overnight before reheating over a low heat until piping hot. Swirl the 1 tsp harissa through the yogurt, then scatter the tagine with the coriander and flaked almonds. Serve with the couscous and spiced yogurt on the side.

TANGY LAMB TAGINE
I love lamb stew, but wanted to try something a bit different, so I created this recipe that uses Moroccan spices. It's a wonderful way to use lamb, and it's easy to make in the slow cooker. The stew tastes even better served a day or two later, when the flavors have really had a chance to meld. -Bridget Klusman, Otsego, Michigan
