The Chef: Timon Balloo

The Restaurant: Bocce Bar in Midtown Miami

The Dish: Lamb & Goat Cheese Meatballs

Ingredients:

10 oz. ground lamb meat

2 tbs. ricotta cheese

2 tbs. grated parmesan cheese

1 tbs. chopped garlic

1 tbs. chopped shallots

2 tbs. bread soaked in milk (or other Italian bread)

1 tsp. fresh parsley

1 tsp. mixed herbs (fresh rosemary, thyme & oregano)

1 tsp. red chili flakes

salt and pepper to taste

flour for rolling meatballs

2 tbs. whipped goat cheese

Ciabatta bread

For Sauce:

1 cup of chicken stock

2 cups of tomato sauce.

Method of Preparation:

- Put ground lamb shoulder in a bowl and add ricotta cheese, and mixed herbs (rosemary, thyme and oregano). Then add parmesan, garlic, parsley, chili flakes, salt and pepper, and Ciabatta bread soaked in milk. Mix well.

- Put scoops of the meatball mix into the flour and roll your meatballs. Tip: An ice cream scooper helps make a good sized meatball.

- Put olive oil in a hot pan and sear the meatballs on all sides- about four minutes. When they're golden brown, drain the oil and set aside.

- Add tomato sauce and chicken stock in a small pot. Heat and mix well, then then pour into the pan with the meatballs. Finish in the oven at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes.

- Slice and toast some Ciabatta bread, and it's ready to plate.

To Plate:

Serve the bread on the side- and put 4 meatballs with sauce in a small serving bowl. Garnish with Whipped Goat Cheese and mixed herbs.

Serving suggestion: Beer

    It's all about the seven year itch for Maxi Priest. That's how long its been since the Reggae singer has released an album, but he got those creative juices flowing and he's back with "Easy to Love."

    Kindness and charm, unlike the people that live in Sin City, and i'm not talking about Vegas either. Things have changed in the town of Sin as in the motion picture while others have stayed the same. The cast of the movie told Deco what's new in part two.?
