Foodservice firm brings out new lamb dishes

A foodservice supplier is hoping to bring an early taste of spring to menus with the launch of two new lamb dishes.

Gilbert’s Foods has created two new stuffed lamb shoulder dishes, aimed at forming the perfect meal centre for foodservice operators.

The lamb comes in two varieties: Apricot & Lemon and Redcurrant & Rosemary, with each dish contains a 400g tender, slow-cooked individual portion of high-quality lamb, containing a unique herb and fruit stuffing, and a rich gravy-style sauce, all designed by the team of development chefs at Gilbert’s Foods.

The company said the dishes would be great for Mother’s Day and Easter menus. Peter Smith, managing director at Gilbert’s Foods, said: “There are many under-used and under-valued cuts of meat that deserve more attention, as they can be cost-effective and versatile without compromising on taste. Our new Stuffed Lamb Shoulders are a great example of this as they are a good value, tasty cut of meat and cooked properly with a good combination of quality herbs and ingredients provide a great menu option.

“Cost-effective cuts of meat such as this are seeing a surge in popularity in the foodservice sector as our customers recognise the benefits of offering quality yet economical dishes on the menu.

“We understand that chefs want foods that deliver on taste, quality and value for money, while diners are looking for authentic flavours and filling dishes that they know and love and our dishes meet all of these needs. By investing in our top-quality meal centres, chefs can effectively recreate popular dishes in a matter of minutes to meet consumer demand for home-cooked style, tasty foods.”
