Bord Bia – Roast Lamb with Tapenade & Spring Onions
Sunday lunch in my mums was always such a treat, she loved lamb and so each sunday she used cook a leg of lamb for the family. She always did it the same way, not that we complained as she was a master at bringing out the best flavours in any dish esp a lamb roast. So every saturday she made her famous (famous in our house anyway) stuffing from fresh white bread, real Irish butter and as often as the seasons allowed fresh onions, sage and parsley from the garden. How I remember the wonderful smells coming from the kitchen, fresh herb stuffing and of course the smell of roast lamb, with mum pottering about, usually with a kitchen knife in hand, the big yellow plastic bowl full of stuffing ready to go under the lamb at the right moment while it roasted away. If you haven’t tried stuffing with roast lamb then you are missing out esp when it is placed under the roast for the last half hour of roasting so it soaks up all the excess juices which gives it a flavour you wouldn’t find in a michelin star kitchen.
I was so happy when Bord Bia asked me to take part in their new campaign promoting Lamb, it gives me a chance to remember those days when mum was still with us and to, hopefully, help you create some lasting memories for your family.
