Roasted Lamb Neck with Fennel, Pomegranate and Mint Salad
This is a deliciously different take on lamb. I have used a deboned lamb neck and gently cooked it with Middle Eastern spices, which is a great match to the fragrant and earthy Karusaf lamb. This dish is perfect for weekend cooking as you need to allow yourself some time. Served with the crunchy fennel and pomegranate salad, this just calls for summer and large ice cold glasses of KWV The Mentors Grenache Blanc.
