    This recipe for lamb chops is a favourite in my house. Rosemary and thyme give it great flavour. If you double the recipe, remember that the sauce will take longer to reduce.

    This recipe has been with me for over 30 years, it was given to me by a Kashmiri guy I shared a house with when I was 17. This is his mum’s family recipe. Kashmir's cuisine combines the area's fruits and nuts with the ingredients and the cooking style of the Moguls. This rich stew makes a marvellous main dish. Serve it with rice or crusty breads. This is lovely!

    This is a delicious meal that is so flavourful. You won't believe it's only 5 main ingredients. You can eat it on it's own but I like to serve it with mashed potatoes to soak up the delicious sauce. Set aside some of the fresh mint for garnishing.

    A rack of lamb is seared, and covered with a mix of breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard, garlic and rosemary before roasting. The result is succulent, perfectly roasted lamb. Try the same technique with beef or pork.

    Lamb shanks are slowly simmered with fresh rosemary, garlic, tomatoes and red wine. Warming and delicious when served with polenta or roasted garlic mashed potatoes, as you'll need something to soak up the wonderful sauce that results. A fantastic dish for guests, as all the prep work is done at the beginning, and then you just have to wait.

    Chunks of lean lamb are gently simmered with dates in a richly spiced gravy, then piled atop couscous and pistachio nuts, and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. Serve this exotic dish for a special family meal or a make-ahead dish for entertaining, accompanied by some Arabic flat bread and a simple leafy green salad.

    This Italian-style casserole is ideal for a special family dinner – it can be put in the oven well in advance, leaving time to do other things. Don't worry if you get delayed, as the lamb improves with longer cooking. Or it can be left to stand and reheated, with the macaroni added at the last minute. Serve with ciabatta.
