The Easter weekend is a FEAST weekend, so I thought I’d share with you a few celebratory ideas that my family will be enjoying over the lazy long weekend! There are a number of elements that can be prepared a day or two before, ready for the dish to be put together with ease! Magills Artisan Butchery in Te Awamutu have provided me with a boned lamb shoulder and I love to spread it with an oily mix of Middle Eastern Zaatar which is sumac, sesame seeds and dried thyme + lots of fresh rosemary which when roasted offers a crisp, sizzling crust to the melting lamb (aka) LAMBGASM!! If there is ever going to be a family argument at the dinner table, let it be over the last succulent lamby morsels. Served with sensational sides and stunning jammy in season figs, this Middle Eastern inspired dinner will having you dipping and diving back and forth – Its a real SHOWSTOPPER!!
