From memories of kitchens at home to restaurant venues across the country, food is one of our favourite obsessions.  This is the 11th article in a IndianSpice series @TsogoSun #OnAPlate, on the diversity and vibrancy of food from the chefs of Tsogo Sun’s hotels and venues!

This main course dish recipe hails from the kitchens of the Montecasino’s The Palazzo Hotel. The Sous Vide Lamb Neck, sweet potato puree, butternut and apricot salsa, pine nuts, cumin and glazed carrots.
