Entertaining & Cooking Ideas
- REST YOUR JOINT BEFORE CARVING
Cover with tin foil, put a clean dishcloth on top and leave in a warm place to allow the juices to evenly disperse.
This allows the meat to relax and
cook further to the perfect pinkness,
also making it easier to carve.
- USE FRESH CLOVES
If you like your lamb studded with garlic, old cloves that have almost sprouted will have had their flavour compromised. Try pink-skinned garlic from Peru when the European varieties are out of season.
- GIVE MUTTON A TRY
Firm and flavoursome, it is the perfect meat if you want to try something a little more adventurous. Grassy and 'sheepy' in all the best ways, it works particularly well with flavours such as liquorice,
red wine and vinegar.
The meat thermometer. This essential piece of roasting kit is great for ensuring your meat is cooked to perfection
