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.

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!

Slow cook this wonderful Greek dish for best results. Kleftiko is a wonderfully simple dish, cooked inside a parcel of paper which traps the moisture resulting in a melt in the mouth texture and flavour sensation.

A slow cooked joint of meat that will be tender, non-greasy and tasty. Don't try this if you like your meat pink or "fatty". This has always produced a non greasy and very tender joint that tastes beautiful. I like to serve this with crispy roast potatoes cooked in goose fat (lightly tossed).

Boneless lamb shoulder conceals fruity golden apricot treasure in a light and complimentary stuffing, perfectly in balance with the smooth and earthy flavours of the lamb. Serve alongside all the traditional sides such as roast potatoes, vegetables and gravy.
