How to make it...

For the Lamb & Savoury Herbs

  1. Remove the fat and sinew from the lamb. Season the chump with salt and pepper in a large pan or roasting tray, fry until golden brown in a little oil.
  2. Place in a hot oven about 200 degrees centigrade for five minutes before removing and allowing to cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile make the savoury herbs by placing all the ingredients in a food processor except for the olive oil until a fine green crumb is achieved, this should take about 1½ minutes. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil and continue to process until all the oil has been used. Turn out onto a plate.
  4. Brush the top of the lamb with egg white well and immediately dip in the herbs.
  5. Place back in the oven for a few minutes to warm through and cook the savoury herbs for approximately 5 minutes.


For the Creamy Goat's Cheese Mash

  1. Boil potatoes in their skins in simmering, salted water until cooked. Drain in a colander and peel whilst still warm but not hot.
  2. Pass through a sieve or 'ricer' into a bowl, meanwhile boil the cream and the butter and beat into the potato, a little at a time, beating well.
  3. Finally add the spreadable cheese and adjust the consistency with hot milk. Season with salt and pepper.


For the Minted Delamere Goat's Yogurt

  1. Take the yogurt, add the mint and thin down with a couple of teaspoons of water if needed.
  2. Season with salt and pepper and spoon over the lamb.


For the Basil Oil

  1. Place the oil and basil into a food processor and liquidise for one minute.
  2. Store in a bottle
