Roast lamb crown, and roast lamb leg

Spring lamb is so sweet and tender it needs just salt, pepper and a few other seasonings.







Herby lamb kebabs, and stir-fried lamb with spring onions

I cook a lot of lamb because it's a meat that lends itself to a wide variety of preparations and seasonings. It has a fairly strong flavour on its own and a good amount of fat, so it doesn't dry out as quickly as leaner meats.












Quick recipe for lamb burger with mint yogurt

Minced lamb burgers take only a few minutes to cook ... If you prefer, shape the meat mixture into small meatballs and pan-fry them before stuffing them into toasted pita bread.











Stew recipes that are quick and easy, for lamb and chicken

The word "stew" brings to mind slow-cooked, heavy, wintery dishes that keep you full when it's cold outside. But it doesn't have to be that way - stews can be light yet flavourful and don't need to simmer on the stove for hours.












Eggplant stuffed with lamb, and fried with minced pork

The eggplant is one of my favourite vegetables (although, botanically, it's a fruit). I love the way it absorbs the flavour of whatever it's cooked with. What's not good is its ability to really soak up oil.
