To serve the stylish way: Garnish with sprigs of rosemary.

Hints 'n' Tips

The lamb is roasted with garlic and peppers and is then shredded once cooked. The beauty of this is that is can be served hot, cold or warm and can be left in an oven to keep warm. It can also be made and prepared in advance. Slices of challah are great to mop up the juices.
