What we're cooking
15 April 2016
To add to our rare breed meats we have found the MANX LOAGHTAN, a very primitive impressive breed of sheep that originates from the isle of man.
Last week Brad and the team headed off to the farm to meet Jeff & George who raise these beautiful rare breed sheep. There is nothing to beat the flavour and eating quality of a properly reared and pure bred piece of meat, especially from one of the many forgotten breeds of beef, sheep, pig and poultry.
The Manx Lamb is a primitive breed of sheep. The fat in the meat is low, 5% compared to 27% in modern hybrid lamb. Manx can breed up to 15 years of age and the meat from the sheep is full of flavour and gets even better with age.
In the kitchen, Brad will be taking a whole lamb each week and butchering it into primal cuts, cooking the different parts on lunch and dinner menus to showcase the lambs quality in different dishes. We are really excited to have this lamb on our menus.
