    Lamb shoulder is slow roasted to perfection with irresistible Greek flavours of citrus and oregano. Be sure to use Greek oregano for the most authentic result. For a unique serving idea, try a spread of tzatziki, soft pitta bread and crisp romaine salad.

    Roasting the lamb shoulder at low temperature makes it wonderfully tender. I roast the veg alongside so it is a one pot dish and easy cleanup.

    This traditional Greek dish is ever popular thanks to the simple yet powerful flavours of the lamb and fresh herbs. The delightful individuality of this dish lies in its method of cooking, which involves wrapping and sealing the joint inside a paper package trapping in the moisture and resulting in a juicy joint.

    Juicy lamb will melt in your mouth when slow roasted over a bed of sliced potatoes. Best when allowed to cook ever so slowly and ideal for a family Sunday gathering. Once the lamb is in you can continue supervising from a comfy armchair - and that's my kind of cooking!
