In Raymond Blanc’s Kitchen Secrets – Lamb episode 3, Raymond shares his favourite mouth-watering lamb dishes. To start, succulent lamb’s liver with caramelised potatoes and a dusting of traditional French seasoning. Shoulder of lamb is slow-roasted with garlic and herbs and served with an earthy potato and turnip gratin to create a hearty but melt-in-the-mouth meal.
Next Raymond returns to his roots with a truly French-inspired dish. Lamb Provencal sees a vivid, herb-encrusted rack of lamb accompanied by a juicy ratatouille. To finish, each tender cut of lamb comes together on one plate surrounded by lively vegetables and a rich tapenade to create a show-stopping finale.
Along the way Raymond travels to Hampshire to visit ex-Formula One champion Jody Sheckter who runs one of the country’s only organic and biodynamic farms where he rears 800 sheep on his unique pastures. Raymond is invited to enjoy a feast of spit-roast lamb basted in his own harissa dressing. Raymond describes the simple method of making the best sundried tomatoes to accompany his assiette.
Celebrated chef Raymond Blanc welcomes the cameras back into his working Oxfordshire kitchen to share the culinary secrets he has collected and cherished over the past 35 years. The programme features a variety of recipes for cooks of all abilities that are inspiring and achievable.
