Slow Roasted Neck of Lamb

November 8, 2009 3 comments

As you may already know, I went to the farmer’s market today where I bought two rolled neck of lamb “joints” from the fine bloke from Twelve Green Acres for the princely sum of eight of Her Majesty’s shiniest Sterling pounds and some pennies.

After a long and busy day, the purchase of those two bits of Mary’s late little lamb resulted in this:

Another Foray to Queens Park Farmers Market

I’m developing a rather nice Sunday Morning routine.  For the last few weeks I have taken a leisurely walk down to Queens Park Farmers’ Market. I have even written about it before.

A vegetable stall at Queens Park Farmer's Market

There's an almost baffling array of fresh vegetables on sale at Queens Park Farmers' Market.

Today was, in farmers’ market terms, a perfect day. An overcast, cool November morning with the threat of a little rain. It just seems so right.

Paulie had a lot of Lamb

Reporting back on yesterday’s Lamb Curry recipe.

It was good. Damn, damn good. Epic.

Only one problem: I should have cooked more. Don’t get me wrong, I did enough for three adults.  The fact is, I should have done enough for two adults and big, fat, greedy eating machine, AKA me.

No doubt a purist or two will see several acts of wanton sacrilege in curry terms, but you know what? I don’t care. There’s too much up-arsishness about food these days.  There is in fact no right and no wrong unless what you’ve cooked tastes terrible. Or if its a baking thing where erring from the path of the righteous recipe can leave you with a biscuit instead of a nice, fluffy cake.

Have a look, drop a comment, send me a recipe…
