Mark from the Salamander restaurant in Mevagissey hosted a lovely Lamb cookery demonstration on Saturday 26th March at Lobbs Farm Shop. Based around making the most of Spring Lamb which is coming into season about now. With simple but beautiful combinations of ingredients Mark rustled up some gorgeous food. The demo was rounded up by an interesting lesson in butchery from our head butcher, Phil who cut up a lamb.
Recipes for this demo will be uploaded soon, in the meantime, have some photographs!
