Baked Marrow makes a wonderful addition to any repertoire. Ensure that you have a young marrow, otherwise remove the skin before use as the skin hardens with age.  I love this Baked Marrow because there is subtly in flavour to the marrow and enhanced by the juices of the lemon, tahini and molasses.
