Lamb Hot Pot

Andrew FairlieThis recipe for Lamb Hot Pot by Andrew Fairlie comes from Albert Bartlett (, Britain’s leading grower and packer of root vegetables. A family business for more than 50 years, they are fiercely committed to natural farming with minimum interference.

When the prestigious Michelin Guide bestowed Andrew Fairlie@Gleneagles with its coveted two star status, Andrew was the only chef in Scotland to receive the honour.
It crowned a remarkable six months for him.
The July before, he had been asked to cook for Bush, Blair and Berlusconi, etc at the G8 conference, wringing praise from that celebrated food critic, Jacques Chirac.

This is just one of the range of recipes he has created to take advantage of the Rooster potato’s unique texture and flavour.
