Dry Aged Lamb Chops with Lentil Salad and mashed Potatoes


Dry aged lamb chops are an exquisite treat. The unbelievably soft lamb meat has a unique aroma and flavour. The color and texture of the meat speak for the quality and freshness, which also reflects upon the many valuable ingredients such as B-vitamins, minerals and proteins.

The lamb unfolds its full aroma when it has been matured. It loses 20% of its fluids, which results in a unique tenderness of the meat. Ideal for grilling in the summer!
