In a tinned copper cauldron, brown the lamb and the onion with the olive oil and chilli pepper.

When all is ready, serve with grated pecorino cheese.
Food satisfies man’s primary needs and this is an irrefutable fact, but it is not enough to explain the refinement of certain preparations: even though they are not elaborate, they are highly tasty, savoury and stimulating. In short, it is fundamental to find a certain pleasure, while satisfying the primary need to feed oneself in order to survive.
