That said, Joe's roast wasn't all that traditional. He made a slow cooked moroccan spiced leg of lamb with rosemary, garlic, tomato, cumin and other spices, accompanied by a chickpea mash, peas, and a tomato jus. The leg of lamb came from Malcolm Michaels butchers who are in the Kirkgate market, and was very good. We were a little sceptical about a chickpea mash, but it was really tasty and much lighter than normal mash. Overall it was a big win, and probably the start of a competition between Joe and I for who can cook the best dinners on a Sunday!
