Imagine my surprise when I exit my high rise office in Auckland CBD to see my mother and grandmother who live in Wellington walking towards me. Having not seen either in months, the surprise was followed by delight as I realised it would mean a night of great food with great company. I still have dreams about the pulled lamb shoulder I ate that night from Amano. This is a perfect mouth-watering dish made for sharing. It's served with sides of pickled onions and mini tortillas. This dish is the perfect excuse to gather family and friends together.
