Food Suggestions
We’ve tried it with a few variations of lamb such as lamb loin chops spiced with salt, black pepper and rosemary, leg of lamb slow roasted, well salted, pepperedand served with roast potatoes, sweet potatoes and spicy gravy. Ovenroasted vegetables with rosemary and garlic could be a vegan alternative.

At a pleasing 16 – 18° (not too cold and not our summer room temperature).
