Week-End Cooking Mood Board – Inspired By Farmers
My mood board for this week-end’s cooking. I’ve got sample packs from Samantha from Aldersyde Farm- Tarkastad Karoo of new cuts they’re doing, lamb kebabs & lamb mince.
I’m always inspired when making lamb to pair it somewhere along the line with The Gourmet Greek yoghurt & I’m also inspired this week by the ClanWilliamOrganics sprouts that add a mustard tone and nutritional power burst to any salads.
So I’m decided. I’m going to braai the kebabs & serve with a Yoghurt dip (2 cups Gourmet Greek yoghurt, juice of 1 organic lemon, 1 fresh garlic clove finely chopped and fresh finely chopped rosemary).
I’ll plate the kebabs with the dip spooned over on a beautiful platter served over the Kazi Farm greens with the mustard sprouts tossed over.
I’m also going to roast the Wensleydale organic cocktail tomatoes in olive oil & balsamic until caramelized & add those for color & sweetness to the platter. For the lamb mince, I’ll add 1 Mooberry free range egg, 1 of the Wensleydale white organic onions finely chopped, some melted lamb fat from Rhodes Lamb, 2 fresh garlic cloves finely diced, a TB of worchestire sauce, some finely chopped parsley and some chicken broth I’ve made with the CTOrganics chicken necks & wings (a deliciously rich stock). I’ll mix that all & leave to stand for half an hour before shaping into patties which I’ll griddle.
I’ll post a photo of the finished platter. Inspired by farmers as usual. Thank you to Aldersyde Farm – Tarkastad Karoo for making this great lamb available, no other lamb compares to me to this very special farm & it took me 5 years to find a lamb farm I could believe in.
Thank you to the very special family behind The Gourmet Greek for bringing an authentic yoghurt to us without corn starch & for inspiring many of my meals.
