Whether it is a national day from across the pond or not, Roast Leg of Lamb Day is celebrated on 7th May each year – and we love it!
Support local producers by looking out for farms near you that sell halves of lamb. You’ll probably find that you get more for you money AND it’s much better quality than buying from large supermarkets.
If you’ve never roasted a leg of lamb at home, it’s remarkably simple to do.
Simply place in a roasting pan, rub down with olive oil, give it a solid dusting of salt and pepper and apply a healthy measure of rosemary and garlic. Cover with aluminium foil and roast for around one hour (depending on weight) at 160ºC/325F.
There are plenty of recipes and videos on the web if you want a complete ‘how-to’ tutorial.
