“Lamb chops are really quick and delicious to BBQ. Lamb is also a popular Mediterranean meat so we can bring the British roast outside and add some amazing Portuguese flavours with the local cheese creating a tangy sauce that keeps the flavours authentic. Oregano is the herb you smell everywhere in the Algarve. It really makes the crumb taste so much better.”

Tom Herbert
