Frequently Asked Questions

Carving a leg of lamb isn’t as complicated as some people will have you believe. What you should know is that the bone runs through the lamb at an angle so it’s best to flip the lamb onto the side that feels more comfortable to you carve before doing the same on the other side.  

You’ll want to slice across the grain until you hit the bone. Continue all the way across the lamb of both sides before turning your knife parallel to the bone and slicing along the bone. Try to get as much meat off the bone as possible and enjoy!
