Mutton dressed as lamb? Thursday 25th November 2010

If a Freeman of the City of London can drive sheep over London Bridge (which is a fallacy, but a fun one - see the last posting) then why can't we take the sheep one step further and turn it into a delicious lunch?

Professional chef, Cyrus Todiwala, of Cafe Spice Namaste, has redefined the word 'mutton'. He says that, technically, mutton is lamb which is slaughtered between October and December. His mutton, served as cutlets, was as tender as any lamb I have ever tasted.

What was this all about? - an idea from Court Assistant Dan Doherty, to create a new 'sheep meat' dish specifically for Livery Companies which, whenever it was ordered, would generate a donation to the current Lord Mayor's charity (in this year, Bear Necessities).

A group of Marketors set the ball rolling last week, enjoying Cyrus's wonderful spicy food on one of the coldest days of the year so far, the principle dish being, what else but, "Marketors' Mayoral Mutton".
