Wonderful composition and processing. I have no idea what’s in the meatballs but if it involves lamb, count me in. :yum:

Hi Kathy, the recipe includes ground beef but I can see no reason why you could not use lamb instead or a mixture of both.

Very nice still life! I think I would like seeing the top of the wine bottle.

In eastern Mediterranean cuisine - I believe it’s usually lamb or a mixture of lamb and beef but slightly further east it would be most definitely lamb ONLY

Correct, Terry. Köfte are Turkish meatballs. The recipes probably vary depending in which part of Turkey you are.
BTW, this is the link to the recipe (if you want to challenge your German skills): http://www.essen-und-trinken.de/rezepte/42505-rzpt-koefte-mit-gurken-melonen-salat
I do have an English translation. Send me a message and I can send it to you. This dish is fantastic when it is hot outside e.g. as a light lunch.

Very nice recipe. Google Chrome has a nice feature that will translate the website from german to English and it does a pretty good job here.

It’s 20 years since I practiced my German (in Germany)
I’m now so slow in that area of my brain.
I’ve sent you a PM
added later…
Must check out Œil de Perdrix at the supemarket this weekend

no problem…sent it to you
Might be difficult to find an Œil de Perdrix in the U.K. This tasty rosé is mainly produced in the western part of Switherland (Neuchatel) but also in the Valais region.
