Mutton has been neglected, but I reckon it’s even more delicious than the popular alternative of lamb.
As a chef I know how wonderful and diverse mutton can be. The definition of mutton is generally accepted to be the meat of a sheep over two years old. This makes it very different from the much younger lamb, which floods our supermarket shelves.
Unlike lamb, mutton is from an animal that has grazed, giving the meat a wonderful, deep red colour, and a succulent texture.
