Serves 4

Serves 6

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Chilling time: overnight

Cooking time: 1 hour, plus 15 minutes resting time

This is a brilliant way to get loads of flavour into your lamb. You need to start this recipe the day before so it can marinate overnight. Ask your butcher to prepare the lamb for you so you don’t have to bother with it yourself. Serve with salad or cous cous. If there are any leftovers, they are delicious the next day with more tzatziki.

The next morning, we’d rush out to the greenhouse and find grapes buried in the soil where the seeds have been!

Nan loved cooking and she was quite traditional. Meet and two veg with gravy was pretty much her offering, and she taught me well. Cooking was my fun time. Our family didn’t really go for convenience food, so we cooked from scratch every day…
