The past weekend me and the girls escaped to Glasgow for the LOVE Scotch Lamb festival, a journalists and bloggers exclusively organised event for the celebration of all things lamb.
The idea of this street food festival was to offer an insight into the world of cooking, meat preparation and of course let us taste all the delicious dishes prepared with various different ways for the day.
It was a rainy day but this didn’t put us off, we headed to the venue and started our gastronomic journey with a stop by the Scoop where we were served braised neck fillet with ras el hanout pomegranate and sultana cous cous. I combined mine with a coconut Oreo smoothie.
Heaven if you ask me!
With half full stomachs we were fascinated to watch a cooking demonstration by Scotch’s Lamb very own chef, Jacqueline O’Donnell, offering her top tips on how best to prepare and serve lamb.
In the meantime meat cutting demonstrations were performed at the next table…
Next stop was Antojito and Pad BKK, were we were offered lamb in soft tacos and lamb with curry rice and crispy shallots with herbs.
Even though we were not hungry anymore, we were so anticipating to taste them!
However, what really caught my attention since the beginning was the slow roasted in a wood oven lamb shoulder prepared at the Solati dough.
It was served with fired over vine tomatoes, and rosemary and garlic flavoured foccacia. Bliss!
Just before leaving I spotted these two lovely ladies, Roisin from Rose Keats and Lynsey from Allsorts and anecdotes. Without hesitation I headed over their table for a chat about the event and blogging life. I find it really nice to meet other bloggers and events are always the best excuse to do so!
And just like that a great Saturday lunchtime came to an end. I would like to thank the organisers of the Scotch Lamb event for inviting us and all the chefs and staff for being so friendly and unremarkable talented.
