Asparagus, white trash lamb and a green ballgown
Sunday saw another lunch/boules party, the rain of the previous Sunday a distant memory, we gathered in the shade, the temperature a simmering 31 degrees- that's Cape Town weather explained perfectly.
The lunch menu planning started with 2 deboned shoulders of lamb and a coca-cola marinade that I confess to trying....I just couldn't resist and yes, it was stickily delicious and demolished before we could get pics, so happily I now have an excuse to try it again for my lovely readers.
That said, I had to introduce a bit of class in the starter, blanched asparagus with a piquante lemon, olive oil dip and a rustic tart filled with artichokes, olives, caper berries and a touch of grated pecorino.
Dessert you ask? with a nod to summer- strawberry tarts with ice-cream
