To celebrate, we've got a step-by-step video tutorial for curried New Zealand lamb & butternut squash, with minted pea yogurt and cardamon rice, designed to inspire your cuisine and get you trying something new with one of our favourite meats...
Since the first delivery of lamb back in 1882, New Zealand Lamb has maintained its position as a firm family favourite and throughout the generations has earned a reputation for consistency and quality. And 99 per cent of New Zealand lamb is transported to the UK by ship, which is widely considered to be the most environmentally-sound method of transport.
Lamb is also one of the healthier red meats that you can eat. It’s high in B vitamins, zinc and iron and full of protein, while remaining relatively low in cholesterol and calories, so can be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet. And when it comes to cooking, lamb is extremely versatile, working beautifully with a variety of ingredients to create some mouth-watering dishes. Though how often do you actually try something new with this popular meat?

World-renowned chef and restaurant owner Peter says: 'Being a New Zealander, lamb has always been one of my firm favourites to eat. As our lamb is reared on open pastures, it makes it the most tender, nutritious and succulent meat. With its versatile flavours, lamb can be married with a variety of ingredients to create delicious dishes for any occasion.'
