How to cook the perfect Easter lamb

Juicy, moist, tender and bursting with freshness. With our helpful ‘how to’ tips you’ll be able to cook your beautiful British lamb joint to perfection.

  • The best way to ensure even cooking is to take your lamb out of the fridge for an hour before cooking and warm to room temperature.
  • For a juicy herb flavoured roast all you need to do is slice a few times through the lamb and stuff with fresh garlic, aromatic sprigs of roughly-chopped rosemary, butter and salt.
  • To ensure your leg of lamb is extra moist and cooked to perfection, pre-heat your oven before you cook and place lamb joint in the middle of the oven.
