Chef Gareth Ward’s Welsh Lamb

Gareth Ward runs Ynyshir Restaurant and Rooms in Powys, named Best Restaurant in Wales at the National Restaurant Awards 2018 – so it’s fair to say, he knows his way around cooking Welsh lamb.

In this recipe, the lamb is served in two parts: Rib then loin. For the lamb rib portion, you’ll need a water bath. But if you haven’t got the kit, skip the rib and head straight for the lamb loin portion of the recipe, using the glaze from part one.

Eid Al Adha – The Festival of Sacrifice is usually known for its spirit of gratitude, animal sacrifice and hearty red meat dishes.

The long preparation for lamb roasts, mutton ribs and beef curries usually leave little or no time for dessert and that’s something that doesn’t go well the kiddie-party. After all, the little ones aren’t interested in how long you slaved to marinade that lamb shank, all they care for is some sweet-tooth fun.

The meaty Eid Al Adha feast is here and it’s time to decide on the big menu. Yep, we know you’re thinking about the fail-safe lamb roast, lamb shanks and may be kebab skewers. So far so good, they’re all popular and delicious but a tad conventional.

Those who proudly call themselves, tea-aholics even have a name for this condition (no kidding!). It’s called Tepidophobia - the fear of a badly made cup of tea.

Many things can cause Tepidophobia. According to Dr Stuart Farrimond, an expert in the science of making tea (yes, that’s an actual job), the brewing time and even the colour of the mug plays a significant role to make your tea just the way you like it.

The blessed month of Ramadan is right around the corner. This means, every morning (for 30 days), one-fifth of the world’s population will unify to abstain from worldly pleasures. Almost 2 billion Muslims will wake up at dawn to observe a fast till dusk.

It’s almost mesmeric to see thousands of families and hundreds of nationalities to follow a single schedule of life. From their passport colour to their daily feast, everything differs YET the spirit of the holy month remains universal.
