16. You prefer your lattes to be of the turmeric variety

17. You’ve eaten at the 50th best restaurant in the world

Time to get your Easter Feaster Face on. What does that mean? It means roasting some fully traceable, Karoo-certified lamb my friends. It means getting loved ones around a table and cracking open the good wine, this time. To celebrate this year, we’ve got two options. Straight-up leg of lamb, which we’ve kept super simple. Roast this one as is, until pink. Alternatively, give the shoulder a go. This has been prepped with a bunch of Easter spices, citrus and herbs stuffed in there. Your best bet here is to add a splash of liquid and cook for a long time, at a low temp. We have limited quantities of each so TO AVOID FEELING SAD AND BAD AND EVEN A LITTLE MAD please e-mail to reserve yours. ? @andrew_nel #eatpropermeat #lamb #easter #ffmm #frankiefenner
