    Delicious but the recipe needs a lot of work. I had the same problems as rosten and Rutikazooty. Photo included.

    Really really delicious. I've made this twice now. Nice Kumquats made a really big difference for the kumquat cabbage slaw. I agree that you don't really need the rosemary sprigs (but it is really fun to use them if you have a rosemary bush) you could just make the chicken into patties and it'd work fine. I completely failed to get the garlic to emulsify on attempt #2. not sure why. Sauce was still delicious.

    I would reduce salt in kofteh and in Garlic shmear by 1/2. Don't sub an orange for the kumquats (which I did)--bad move. Kofteh and garlic shmear were delicious. Definitely make rice on the side as she suggests. My kofteh meat mixture was too liquid. I may have overdone the wine. I would add wine last to make sure the mixture can be easily formed onto the rosemary kabob. Family agreed that rosemary kabob didn't seem to add flavor (even though the herb fried in the oil) but made for special presentation. Also when you are making it, if you clip it from your own overgrown rosemary plants, you feel like you are cooking outdoors and making use of the bounty in your garden. It's special.
