Try this recipe by NEFF; A rack of lamb with a herb crust, perfect for an Easter feast.


Ingredients
Serves 4

3 ½ tbsp olive oil
2 rashers streaky bacon,
chopped finely
85g fresh breadcrumbs
6 dried apricots,
chopped finely
3 tbsp dried cranberries,
roughly chopped
1 tbsp finely
chopped rosemary
1 tbsp finely
chopped chives
1 tbsp finely
chopped parsley
1 clove garlic, peeled
and minced
Zest of 1 lemon
2 racks of lamb
(each with 6 chops)

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200C (For your Neff oven, preheat to 180C
CircoTherm® plus medium-steam).

2. Heat 1 tbsp of the olive oil in a frying pan and add the bacon. Fry until
starting to crisp, then add in 25g of the breadcrumbs. Fry for a further
two minutes, until the breadcrumbs brown slightly. Turn off the heat,
and stir in the apricots and cranberries.

3. Place the remaining oil in a bowl with the rosemary, chives, parsley,
garlic and lemon zest. Stir together.

4. Add half of the herb paste to the remaining fresh breadcrumbs and stir
together until the oil and herbs are distributed.

5. Take a long, narrow, sharp knife and work a hole through one of the
racks of lamb, between the fatty layer and the bone (don’t cut through
the medallion bit). Use the handle of a wooden spoon to widen the
hole a little – so you can fit the stuffing in. Turn the lamb over and
work the hole through the other side, so the stuffing will go all of the
way through. Repeat with the other rack of lamb.

6. Take the fried breadcrumbs and push this mixture down the holes
you made in the racks of lamb. Use the wooden spoon handle to help
you push the stuffing all the way through (you may need to stuff the
breadcrumbs in at both ends of the rack).

7. Spread the remaining herb paste on the fatty side of the racks of lamb.

8. Press the fresh breadcrumb mixture on top of the fatty sides of
the racks of lamb, pushing down so the breadcrumbs stick to the
herb paste.

9. Place the lamb in a roasting tin, bone-side-down, in the oven to cook
for 20-25 minutes (20 minutes for medium-rare). Leave to rest for 5
minutes before serving.

TIP
Use VarioSteam (low setting) for lamb that’s beautifully succulent on the
inside and crisp on the outside.

KCA have been a pleasure to work with from the very start of the project. They listened to my requirements, designed a beautiful kitchen and built it on time and to budget. The whole team have an excellent eye for detail and a great sense of customer service; I could not recommend them more highly.
Mrs. Alexandrou
It really is an excellent service. No detail is left unchecked. Everything from the beginning has been amazing. The initial design was well thought out, imaginative & exciting. All our questions no matter how silly were answered. Measurements on site were checked very carefully which meant when issues were found they could be resolved before the kitchen was ordered. It arrived on time & was fitted with the same care & attention we'd come to expect. The kitchen itself - WOW!
Mrs. Scott
After visiting a number of kitchen specialist, KCA were the only ones who listened and were able to translate my ideas into reality. The final product was perfect and the service and after care provided was exceptional.
Mr. & Mrs. Bhalla
We found their design to be unique, resulting in a bespoke kitchen which excelled our expectations. Excellent aftercare and would not hesitate to recommend.
Mr. & Mrs. Gilbert
KCA were the 3rd kitchen design company we approached, they were the only ones to listen to us and our design requests and ideas. The 3D view of how the kitchen would look was perfect.
Mr. Ryan
I cannot recommend the team at KCA highly enough. From concept to completion the whole experience was seamless.
Mrs. Robert's
Having previously worked in kitchens, I know how painful having your kitchen fitted can be - I think our experience was as painless as it could have been.
Mrs. O'Doherty
From concept design to finished kitchen the process was seamless. KCA not only produced a great design but their interface with the architect and builders made the project a great success.
Mr. & Mrs. Cardwell
KCA came up with the design for our open plan kitchen/dining/family space and we loved it immediately. No other kitchen designer/supplier came close!
Mrs. Gibson
From concept to completion the whole experience was seamless. Being interested in interior design I had quite a specific vision for my kitchen and KCA wholly embraced my input making me feel very much part of the decision making process whilst using their expertise to guide and steer regarding practicality and functionality.
Mrs. Roberts
Just Perfect from the point of walking into the showroom and the journey taken to the end product including aftercare.
Mr. & Mrs. Perera
The customer service is second to none. The kitchen design and choice is superb.
Mrs. Hanson
The kitchen fitter is very efficient & an excellent communicator, his work is to a very high standard & he is very tidy!
Mr. & Mrs. Cass
Very friendly, informative and helpful service. I would definitely use KCA again. Thank you all.
Mrs. Tucker
The design of the kitchen differed hugely from any of the others we received. This really was a "design". Clever and inspiring, not just someone drawing what we'd said. The fitting was efficient with the same regard to detail.
Mr. & Mrs. Scott
Great service from start to finish.
Bentier
Always a pleasure to deal with, fantastic designs and great service all round.
