For the potatoes

  • 350 g new potatoes
  • 10 g chives, snipped
  • 25 g butter

For the lamb

  • 1 dashes of olive oil
  • 2 baby French trimmed racks of lamb, with 3 bones (about 150g) each
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard


1. For the potatoes: cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling salted water until tender (about 15-20 minutes). Drain well and keep warm.

2. For the lamb: preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6.

3. Heat a dash of oil in a roasting tin and fry the lamb until golden-brown all over. Roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes - or longer, depending on the size of the racks.

4. Remove from the oven. Mix the honey and mustard together and brush onto the meat. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes until glazed. Cover with foil and rest for 8-10 minutes.

5. To finish the potatoes: stir the butter and chives into the hot potatoes. Season both the potatoes and lamb and serve at once.
