Bring Everyone To The Table With Lamb

Whether you're hosting a casual get-together, a weekend BBQ or a more formal affair, Australian lamb is the top choice for uniting everyone around the table. No matter what your guests' backgrounds, religious beliefs or dietary requirements are, lamb is the meat more people can eat!

To help bring everyone to the table this spring, We Love Our Lamb has teamed up with top chef Thi Le from Melbourne's Anchovy. Designed for the modern-day dinner party, Thi has created a selection of delicious lamb recipes to share.

The collection is launched after research commission by We love Our Lamb, revealed that Australians have noticed a change in dinner parties in the last 10 years reporting: they are less formal (51 per cent); more culturally diverse recipes are being served up (32 per cent); dishes are more likely to be shared (30 per cent); the preparation of food is a joint effort (32 per cent); and hosts now have to cater for more dietary requirements (32 per cent). With all these changes, it's no surprise that research has found the solution to be lamb with nine in ten (91 per cent) Australians agreeing it is the perfect dinner party meal.

Thi Le, says: -Getting friends and family around the table over some delicious food is such an important part of Australian culture. From masala spiced lamb ribs, to lemongrass lamb leg with banh tieu, pickles and grilled zucchini, these lamb recipes take inspiration from my Vietnamese roots and are perfect for keeping guests happy at your next gathering.'
