Bakalaki is one of, if not the finest Greek restaurants in Singapore, and its head chef, Spiros Palaiologos, knows a thing or two about how to make lamb taste incredible. He moved to the country seven years ago and has been working in kitchens for 22 years.
We caught up with him and asked him to share a recipe for the FoodTribe community, and he gave us this amazing insight in how to cook lamb chops with roast potatoes.
As with all cooking, quality of ingredients is important. Many people will focus on the meat, but when a dish relies heavily on a range of herbs and spices, it's important to make sure they're of a high quality too. Spiros recommends The Urban Spice Shop, which is based in Singapore and supplies restaurants and foodservice customers with organic, hand-packed spices from farms across Sri Lanka, India and Madagascar.
Don't forget about the quality of herbs and spices when cooking
"I tried out their spices and knew immediately they were of a very high quality and they'd be an interesting product to work with," he said. "The restaurant opened in 2016 and finding good quality spices was a challenge in the beginning. Good quality spices elevate the taste of a dish to another level. In every kitchen you need good spices whether that kitchen is at home or at a restaurant — flavour is so important and spices make a dish smell good and brings food to new levels."
