About this Recipe

Albanian Tavë Dheu me Mëlçi is one of Albania’s national dishes and is also know as Fergesë me Mëlçi (with Liver). There is a vegetable version called Fergesë e Tiranës me Piperka which is just as tasty!

This is a great recipe that allows me to get out my clay dishes and bake the same way you would back in Albania – I have a big thumbs up from the family for this dish!

This recipe is best cooked in clay dishes, 15cm by 5cm deep. It gives it a natural authentic taste and looks good too!
