  • About

This recipe belongs to Royalist tables of the seventeenth century. A simplified version is quoted by Eliza Acton, but the original recipe dates from a hundred years or so before her day. The shoulder of lamb would probably have been expected to serve only two gentlemen. In our day it is enough for more than double that number. It is extremely good if served with green peas cook
