    chia's Note:

    the best thing about "philly cooks" a fund raiser for aids which featured 50 of philly's finest resteraunts, was this dish! after i went back for the 3rd time i persuaded the adorable chef of Valanni's to share his recipe- and he did. when i made this at home it was every bit as good as the original.

      Wow! Good stuff! I was a bit dubious about the fig jam but since I did have some figs that needed using up I went ahead and made it. It was definitely worth doing, although even without the jam this is a great recipe. I had a frozen lamb shoulder roast that I discovered was boneless when I thawed it out, which helped this to be amazingly easy to make. This is a great dish to serve to company because it holds really well. I was a little short of time and did not get the broth reduced all that much - no great problem, just serve it with something to sop it up, because you won't want to miss a drop.
