The Main Course - Herb- Crusted Leg of Lamb...

Son H intended to cook herb crusted rack of lamb as his main course......another recipe by Gordon Ramsay....but could not find any in the supermarket.....there was only leg of lamb.....so had to settle for this one....here are also some pics i took of him in action......


preparing the herb crust consisting of day old slices of bread,handful of parsley,coriander,thyme and rosemary sprigs and grated parmesan in a food processor.............

fine crumbs of bright green colour .....herb crust.......


the seasoned lamb leg chops.....with olive oil, sea salt and black pepper...to be seared in pan on both sides for 4 minutes each...before baking in the oven for 10 minutes ...then coated with the herb crust...and warm in oven for another 5 minutes....this is not the end of it....son made some brown sauce gravy with the drippings of the cooked lamb legs and some cream.....a baked potato gratin and a fried cabbage with bacon bits was served with this lamb leg....see next posting...

You are welcome :) Oh i see. Well, personally I tink its way better to prepare such meals at home. E prices of fine dining scares me at time. In E back of my mind, I would be calculating tht a meal tht I ate there would be able to feed at least 4 If i were cook on my own.

It must be a good feeling to eat sumthing thts cooked by your son coz its always E other way round! Haha. I hope hes gonna cook more often for you guys so tht you can share more of his recipes and culinary adventures with us :)
