How to cook

Known as Carré d'Agneau in French cuisine and butchery textbooks, the rib rack of lamb is expertly butchered at ninety degrees to leave the ribs intact with the prized meat attached and is the pinnacle of the Butcher's art. They are then interlinked with one another pre cooking. Be sure to download our recipe tips for cooking times and serving tips. Serve fat side out and form in an arch for a regal cut that is surprisingly easy to prepare.

About the cut

Rib Rack Of Lamb

Known as Carré d'Agneau in French cuisine and butchery textbooks, the Rib Rack of lamb is cut out at ninety degrees to the spine of the animal, leaving the ribs intact with the prized rib meat attached. The ribs are then French trimmed to leave clean bone at the end of each rib for maximum effect. More commonly simply cut into chops, the Rib Rack is a favourite of chefs and increasingly in demand.

Tasting notes:
Smallholding Farms In & Around Yorkshire

It's good to eat and enjoy heritage breed meat, showing farmers that there is a market for their herds and flocks and encourage them to rear them. Without a demand for their meat, many breeds would die out altogether. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this and help more people realise that we need to safeguard the natural diversity of our farm animals and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
