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
½ white Onion
40ml finely chopped Fresh Mint
75ml White Wine Vinegar
Salt and Pepper
5 ml White Sugar
1) Finely chop the tomato, removing all the seeds or centre part of the tomato resulting in about 80g chopped tomatoes
2) Finely chop ½ an onion so yielding about 40g chopped onion
3) Add chopped mint and white wine vinegar
4) Season with salt and pepper and finish with white sugar
