Michelin-starred chef Andreas Antona has partnered with EBLEX to launch a new range of innovative lamb forequarter, breast and offal cuts.
The latest booklet in EBLEX’s ‘Master Chef and Master Butcher’ series, sees Andreas and master butcher Dick van Leeuwen unveil a range of good value lamb cuts, designed to encourage chefs to put this popular meat back on menus and help industry to profit.
Foodservice project manager for EBLEX, Hugh Judd, said: “With a good amount of new season lamb coming in, now is the perfect time to make the most of it on menus. Dick and Andreas have produced a great range of cuts to offer inspiration to chefs.”
With over 60 years of industry experience between them, the pair set about developing a range of six underused and inexpensive cuts which are ideal for both traditional and sous vide cooking.
Dick said: “An important focus for the supply chain at the moment is maximising carcase utilisation. Lamb is a popular meat with consumers and these cuts will give chefs greater menu variety and the opportunity to increase profitability. Andreas has provided input from a chef’s perspective and I think we have come up with some great ideas for the foodservice industry.”
The featured cuts are:
- Lamb Heart and Lamb Liver - (EBLEX Code: Offal L001)
- Lamb Spatchcock (Shoulder) - (EBLEX Code: Forequarter L030)
- Rolled Belly of Lamb (EBLEX Code: Breast L013)
- Lamb Spare Ribs (EBLEX Code: Breast L012)
- Chunky Neck Chops (EBLEX Code: Forequarter L037)
