As I sit with a cup of tea and the creamiest of cream scones, I  reflect on the fact that English food is not thought of as fondly as,  let’s say, French and/or Italian cuisine. This seems crazy when you  consider everything the English have brought to the table.

Then there’s pork with applesauce and lamb or mutton with fresh mint  sauce. I have fond recollections of scrumptious Sunday lunches with the  family tucking into typical “English” fare.

Roasted Lamb with Fresh Mint Sauce

Yields : 4 portions

Ingredients :

2-3 Tomatoes

½  white Onion

40ml finely chopped Fresh Mint

4) Season with salt and pepper and finish with white sugar
