This weekend, Catholics will celebrate Palm Sunday which commemorates the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem and begins Holy Week.

If that day, at the table, fish is authorized, the end of Lent will impose a certain restraint in the use of the fork until the Easter holidays and its procession of cocoa and meat pleasures... A sin for vegans alone !

The fervent followers of the tradition will not be asked to make a leg of lamb a divine dish of sharing.

"Let the lamb be expected like a first date of love!"

implored Grimod de la Reynière, author of

L'Almanach des gourmands.

Multiplied by two in March, the sales of this meat rather shunned the rest of the year then rise to the sky.

Let's take this opportunity to preach the love of a job well done by breeders in Occitania, New Aquitaine, Auvergne-Rhône Alpes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur... If each breed - there are 58 in France alone - has its own characteristics, transmitted by the terroir, Limousin lamb (IGP), milk-fed lamb "raised under the mother" from the Pyrenees (Label Rouge IGP) and Sisteron lamb (Label Rouge IGP) are among the most sought after.

We forget the salt-meadow lambs from the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel and the Somme (AOP), which must graze for a minimum of 75 days from March, and will therefore only be marketed from the month of June.

No sheepish behavior,

In the kitchen, meat of tender quality, with a not too strong taste, does half the job for you.

It is then up to everyone to choose a method of cooking and an accompaniment which can vary from flageolet to Tarbais beans, from potatoes to early carrots or asparagus.

You will find in this letter good addresses to make this Easter meal a moment of conviviality and gourmet festivities... To be in heaven, even for just a few hours.

Happy reading and have a nice weekend!
