2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

1 Small bottle of white wine

Salt and pepper


1. Shoot and butcher a wild goat (or get a leg from a good butcher!)

3. Cover in the harissa paste and season with the salt and pepper before covering and then refrigerate overnight

4. Heat the oven to 220C and place the leg in a 'neat fitting' baking tray, covered by tin foil, in the lower third of the oven

5. Remove after 15 minutes and scatter the vegetables over the meat before replacing in the oven. Reduce the temperature to 135c
