A Celebration of Lamb

When I think of menu ideas for spring & early summer, lamb dishes always come to mind. I have created a tasty Celebration of Lamb menu that will impress your family and guests. It begins with my creamy asparagus & ramp soup and on to a tender rack of lamb with a delightful almond rice pilaf. Cool your palate with yummy pistachio ice cream and an effervescent Aperol spritzer.

ChefBear Complete Meals - creamy asparagus soup with ramps

creamy asparagus soup with ramps

Ramps belong to the same family as onions and garlic, and they look like miniature leeks. These pungent greens have a short spring season, so take advantage of them in a delicious soup. This recipe also features tender asparagus. The cooked veggies are pureed with chicken stock, yogurt, and fragrant spices. Top this velvety soup with a few sautéed asparagus tips, leeks, and mint.

ChefBear Complete Meals - pistachio ice cream

pistachio ice cream

Cream cheese makes this pistachio ice cream even creamier than a traditional recipe. The toasted pistachios are sure to stand out but not overpower the sweetness of the ice cream. This recipe takes a bit of work, but trust me it is worth it.

For the perfect after-work aperitif, consider my version of this class Italian cocktail. The fizzy blend of soda and the sweet prosecco balance the delightful bitterness of the Aperol. You can make these drinks individually or serve as a pitcher cocktail.
