Our Favourite Lamb Dishes for #LoveLambWeek 2017
Aside from those who’ve adopted a meat-free diet, who doesn’t love a succulent leg of lamb or a tender lamb shank?
And while you might think a large number, you might be surprised to learn that, according to the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) – the organisation for beef and lamb levy payers in England, fewer people over the past 15 years are regularly eating lamb.
In fact, AHDB says that while those aged over-55 “make up the lion’s share of the market, time is ticking for lamb”.
In response, a campaign drive called Love Lamb Week was started in 2015 “to help unite all who Love British Lamb, from producers to consumers, and to give a boost to the great local businesses” who support this industry.
With #LovelambWeek falling between 1st – 7th September this year, we’ve selected a number of memorable restaurant lamb dishes, personally enjoyed by us over the past few years, to celebrate this very British meat (Note: it’s always best to contact a restaurant to make certain the dishes below are still on the menu):
