Seared Beef Carpaccio

Seared Beef Carpaccio...

Beef carpaccio Carpaccio is a perfect hot weather starter and a few weeks ago I made it for a dinner party along with the Eton Mess as a dessert and it went down so well I will be doing it again and again.

You do need a very...
Sunday Roast lamb

Roast shoulder of lamb There is nothing more delectable than preparing lamb for friends and family for Sunday lunch. The tanginess of French mustard adds to the unique flavours of this tender and delicious shoulder of lamb (it is very important that the meat is set aside to marinate for 4 hours). If the roast lamb has been frozen, ensure that it is left to thaw overnight and is completely defrosted. What You Need 1 1/2...
