Hotel Blog challenge: On the Menu Tonight by Dingwall Academy

Confit shoulder of lamb with galette potato, root vegetables and rosemary jus

The chef of The Torridon has recommended me as the dish of today’s menu. I’m proud of it. Proud not only of my flavour but also of my delicate preparation and careful sourcing. From the hills of Gairloch on the west coast comes the main piece of the dish, me – the lamb. I am locally sourced from my matey Kenneth Morrison the butcher, in Gairloch itself. Tenderly coated in a mixture of fine salts for 24 hours means my full flavours are allowed to develop to give another dimension to the dish. After being rinsed off of and being lathered in a layer of sumptuous duck fat I am then slowly cooked for 12 hours to allow the succulent, melt in the mouth texture to be created.

My friends the buttery galette potato and the root vegetables celeriac, carrot and swede are then drizzled with a fresh rosemary jus to create the perfect dish. The perfect dish waiting for the diner to come and tuck in only at The Torridon. Come and make your day!
