If one is a regular blogger, it behoves one to have a schedule and to stick with it. Mine is weekly, Tuesday 10:00AM Irish time (actually British time but Brexit, if it ever happens, may put paid to that). I have had enough and need a bit of a break to recharge the batteries and get my act together. So, instead of posting something new and exciting, I encourage you to look back through the 49 lamb recipes I have here on the blog. I will highlight my top 5 for Easter and then I’m off to the west of Ireland to ride my bicycle, drink pints and talk nonsense. Enjoy your Easter, you have a few days to prepare for it.
Conor’s Top 5 For Easter
Number 5 – Herbed Rack of Lamb
This has some sage advice on the mathematics of a lamb rack. The recipe is a delight and worthy of your attention.
Number 4 – Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Garlic and Rosemary
A classic mix of ingredients make this barbecue worthy and great for Easter. It is a delicious dish and if the weather allows barbecue, it’s well worth giving a whirl.
Number 3 – Spring Lamb Chump with Cumin
Chump of lamb is one of those cuts that any good butcher will recognise. I believe that there is an inverse ration between the level of fancy dress (straw boater, stripy apron, check trousers) and knowledge of the guy or gal behind the counter. Talk to the one with the knowledge and try this lovely lamb chump recipe.
Number 2 – Leg of Spring Lamb Sous Vide
This one is a cracker and if you are in any doubt of the outstanding results that sous vide can deliver, then this will put your doubts to bed.
Number 1 – Lamb and Butterbean Chilli
I surprised myself as I went through my lamb recipes. This one was a real delight. There are lots of ingredients that go to build layers and layers of flavour. If you are a bit non traditional and want to try something different with lamb, give this lovely chilli a go.
Happy Easter to you, whether you celebrate it or not, just be happy for goodness sake. You can find all my lamb recipes on this link here.
