  • 1kg mix of Maris Piper potatoes, sweet potatoes and celeriac, scrubbed, peeled if necessary (about ⅓ each)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 large leek, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 sprig/s rosemary, leaves chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 200ml chicken stock
  • 150ml double cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas mark 4. Scrub the root vegetables and slice thinly, using a mandolin if you have one, cutting the potato and sweet potato lengthways. Rinse in cold water and pat dry with a tea towel. Grease a shallow, 1.5L ovenproof dish with 1 tsp butter, then layer the roots with the leeks. Season well and add the rosemary and garlic as you go. Finish with a neat layer of roots.

  2. Mix together the stock and cream and pour over the vegetables. Dot the top with the remaining butter and cook in the oven with the lamb for 1 hour, until the top is golden and the vegetables are tender.
