American Lamb Roulade Stuffed with Freekah, Cherries and Mint

Chef Mica Talmor of Mediterranean restaurant, Pomella, in Oakland, Calif., demonstrates how to make lamb roulade, a traditional dish that she reimagined for her menu. She stuffs lamb necks with mint, freekeh, and dried sour cherries that she then rolls, ties and braises. Chef Mica slices the roulade and serves it with a salad of grilled romaine lettuce, freekeh, and a preserved lemon vinaigrette. This combination of ingredients elevates and complements the flavor of the lamb neck.
