Considered one of the classic pairings in food, the lamb-shank-and-potatoes dish offers deep, rustic flavors that can be enjoyed in any season.

ThisWeek staffers answer the question: When’s the last time you had lamb shank and potatoes?

Andrew King: I have never eaten a lamb shank, but I would be happy to eat this meal if you're buying.

Scott Hummel: I'm not sure I ever have. I vaguely recall Damon's in Granville having something sort of similar, and I'm sure I liked it if I tried it -- being the staunch carnivore that I am.

Sarah Sole: Never. I have never had that.

Dennis Laycock: Never, but I wouldn't say no to it.

Lee Cochran: Lamb shank, I don't know; potatoes, last night.

Lisa Proctor: This is one of the few meat entrees I've never had.

Nate Ellis: Several years ago. It was good.

Abby Armbruster: I don't know if I have ever eaten lamb shank -- even in my 20 years before I was a vegetarian. But I do love me some potatoes.

Neil Thompson: I'm not certain. I prefer lamb rib chops, and I eat those whenever I can.
