Rack of Lamb, Wild Garlic, Crispy Sweetbread, Grilled Brocolli paired with Ethna DOC Rosso, Alta Mora

This was the main course served at our Italian Wine Tasting Dinner in February.  Tried and tested by Mr. Lindskog and this is what he had to say…..

As a sweetbread virgin, I was a bit intimidated by this. But you never forget your first, and I won’t forget this.

The elegant wild garlic provides beautiful top-notes and the sweetbread is the silky, crunchy foundation for the blushing lamb.

I was new to wild garlic and although the name implies garlic thuggery, it couldn’t be more refined. As for the sweetbread – I’m converted. I found it to be a gorgeous experience of texture rather than flavour and I could list adjectives like silky, tender and creamy but really – just try it.

Pair with Ethna DOC Rosso, Alta Mora.
