Persian butterflied leg of lamb

My favourite marinade for this barbecued lamb is a Persian mix of yoghurt, chilli, mint and lemon.  Also delicious is a combination of rosemary, garlic, olive oil and lemon; or go for a Moroccan flavour, with ground cumin and cinnamon, crushed coriander seeds, olive oil, garlic and paprika.  Try Thai-flavoured lamb, with coconut milk and green or red curry paste; or Indian, with fresh grated ginger, turmeric, cumin and garam masala.  Try them one by one throughout the summer.  Simple, excellent and delicious!

Lavinton wins Great Taste Award 2-star 2017!

That means only 35% of entries were accredited – it’s tough.

Food or drink awarded a Great Taste star-rating has gone through a rigorous taste test. Judged by chefs, restaurateurs, food hall & deli buyers, acclaimed cooks, food writers and critics, every product has passed the palate test of a minimum of eight experts.The judges are looking for truly great taste. They take into account the texture, appearance and of course the ingredients; they like a good aroma, a decent bite, a smooth finish or a lingering flavour. Everything comes back to taste. Is it really, truly great?

Amazing quality meat

We cooked it low and slow and the shoulder was really moist and tender. This lamb had a delicious sweet flavour and the fat was very good. An excellent piece of meat – faultless.
