Mother’s Day Feast Menu 2: Slow-cooked lamb with pikelets and blackberry crumble

Celebrate Mothering Sunday this weekend with a delicious 3-course feast the whole family can enjoy. 

This menu is all about saving time by prepping ahead. Each dish has elements that can be made in advance so you don’t need to spend too much time working in the kitchen away from your family.

We start with a tasty potato and smoked salmon pikelets starter you can make-ahead, followed by a slow roasted lamb dish that can be gently cooking all morning giving you time to put your feet up!

Finally, serve up this twist on an all time classic with the strawberry and blackberry crumble recipe. This elegant treat goes from oven to table in just 20 minutes.

Try these tasty potato pikelets for a perfect starter to your Mother’s Day feast. You can make larger pikelets, or make them in smaller blini-size portions so there’s plenty of room for three courses. If you prefer a lighter lunch, then larger pikelets served with a side salad would make a great alternative to a full Sunday roast.

The whole family will love this classic roast packed full of flavour. The sweet shallots work beautifully with the flavour of the meat. Fresh, simple ingredients and a dish made to be shared with the family.

This elegant strawberry and blackberry crumble recipe looks beautiful served in individual glass dishes. The key is cooking the crumble and the compote separately, and then bringing them together at the end. The rosewater and elderflower bring out the fragrance of the strawberries, making this a simple yet sophisticated dessert.
