An ancestral cooking art with origins you cannot imagine

Updated: Apr 18

The beauty of cooking a lamb on the cross (also called 'roast on the cross') dates back many years. I could live this experience a thousand doesn't matter. It's like a kind of cellular emotion, of very marked genetic memories that awaken in the body, emotions, taste and touch when I cook it. It's fantastic.

Sitting by the fire, taking care of it, putting firewood, watching the flames, feeling the heat and smoke on our skin,... the aroma of roast meat. Waiting for it with your friends, or well, alone!, while you drink a wine, share the joy of the fire while the long-awaited lamb cooks very, very slowly with this warmth and affection for five or more hours, it is without a doubt, an absolutely fantastic experience.

The happiness of those who have waited around the heat of the flames, sung and imbibed so much joy from this ancestral ritual. Before telling you about the history of this technique, let's define it, to understand it well: It consists of tying the animal, or part of it, in an iron frame or stick in the shape of a cross that is buried in the ground and rests, slightly inclined about 70 cm, in the heat of the constant and natural fire.

As a private chef we love to work with the flame and cook with olive wood or vine wood among others. Tradition together with good local and quality products makes Mery Rose Mery have the Andalusian and Mediterranean flavor you want for your vacation or event.

In the case of choosing this experience, it must be in a suitable place, with permission to make an open fire and in the season of the year that it is allowed to do so, otherwise will not be possible to make it.
