Leeds, UK, 2017-Nov-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — Fare-thee-well to mediocre cuts of meat this Christmas and welcome the mother of all show-stopping festive centrepieces, Asda’s NEW Extra Special Triple Lamb Crown. The medieval meat masterpiece is inspired by the opulent feasting banquets seen on popular TV series Game of Thrones and inspired by the trend for ‘tear and share’ style dining.
The lavish creation consists of three Welsh-sourced lamb racks that form the structure of a Christmas crown, filled with festive fruit stuffing, drizzled with a pork and mint jus and decorated with botanical rosemary sprigs for the final flourish. The sumptuous showstopper is best devoured alongside golden roast potatoes, parsnips and paired with a goblet of robust red wine.
An Asda spokesperson, said: “The fictional banquet halls of Game of Thrones and times gone by are set to inspire festive feasting this Christmas and impressive joints of meat will take centre stage. Our Triple Lamb Crown is a striking showstopper that will be sure to knock the socks off your loved ones and add a whole new level of luxury and indulgence to your Christmas banquet.”
The mouth-watering creation is the brainchild of the winner of the 2017 Golden Apron competition, 18-year-old Zacharias Abbot from York. The competition seeks to find
Yorkshire’s best young chef and the win gave Zacharias the opportunity to design a range of Christmas products for Asda, and so the Triple Lamb Crown was born.
Asda’s Extra Special Triple Lamb Crown with festive Fruit Stuffing & Port & Mint Jus is available from XXX November nationwide with an RRP of £XXX.
