Good morning from Mister Butcher!  
With cooler weather on the horizon we are going to feature some products that are more traditionally prepared inside.  

This week: Rack of Lamb

This is one of our favourite products.  100% grass fed and free range New Zealand lamb.  We offer Ovation Racks of Lamb, which are always shipped to us by air vs. the traditional method of sea freight.  This gives you access to the freshest, best lamb in the world.  

Here are some pictures of Jonathan's visit to the Ovation family owned farms in NZ.  He went to the source, met the farmers and toured the plant.

My favourite way to prepare lamb is using Ina Garten's recipe from Barefoot Contessa Parties
1 tbsp kosher salt
2 tbsp minced fresh rosemary
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 racks of lamb, frenched
How to:
In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade, process the salt, rosemary and garlic until as finely minced as possible. Add mustard and balsamic vinegar and process for one minute.
Place the lamb in a roasting pan with ribs curving down, and coat the tops with the mustard mixture.  Allow to stand for one hour at room temperature.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Roast the lamb for exactly 20 minutes for rare or 25 minutes for medium-rare. 
Remove from the oven and cover with foil.  Allow to sit for 15 minutes, then cut into individual ribs and serve.
Logistics: we are delivering in the GTA Thursday & Friday, and will be in Collingwood on Friday.  Please place orders by Tuesday at 6pm.
New on the site: check out a new section "We ordered too much".  Occasionally we bring in more fresh product than needed.  We freeze it, and are happy to offer these products to you at a discount.
