Today 22 March 2018 - VI day of Ermouthi, the eighth month of the Lunar Calendar (in the CDXVIII Great Year of Ra according to the Civil Calendar). (quotes from “Egyptian Religious Calendar: CDXVIII-CDXIX Great Year of Ra (2018CE)”, where you will find the full version of the Egyptian Calendar with the complete translation of the Temples’ calendars. The book is available both in paperback format and as a digital ebook: http://a.co/7jF2Kjy )
The VI day of the lunar month is sacred to Nut. It is the “Feast of the Sixth Day of the Month” and Duamutef is the God of the Feast. - “Do not mention the name of the enemy of Osiris in a loud voice on this day (...).” [c.c. and S. pap.] - Feast of the Divine Birth of Horus (...) (twenty-day festivity, V day)
[T. Behdet, c. Hathor]

Incredibly excited to share this great recipe with you so you can try it at home and hugely grateful to @merlin_johnson for sharing. It's a characteristically classic, simple and harmonious dish, beautifully elegant, delicate and subtle. A certain talking point at your next dinner party!
You can try Merlin's food at the wonderful @portlandrestaurant, his first place which earned him a Michelin star aged just 24, about 5 minutes after it opened. We love it for its use of extraordinary ingredients, seasonal focus, classic and elegant flavor combinations and relaxed vibe.
We hope you enjoy making this dish. Let us know how you got on, use #loamcook and show us your cooking skills! We can't wait to see all the veggie goodness you guys will come up with.
