  1. Although this post may shock some Westerners, Middle Eastern readers can relate to cooking ‘head’ meat. In the Persian cuisine, we have a dish called ‘kal’leh pacheh’ (head-hooves), which very well cleaned lamb head/hooves with a few basic herbs and onion/garlic are put in a big, tall pot with lots of water, and cooked from late evening until early morning (6+ hours) giving flavors a chance to meld and the meats to fall apart. It is common to eat this very rich meal early in the morning to have all day to digest it. 😀 ))) Fae.
