A shoulder of mutton is a real autumnal treat. Beautiful melt in the mouth meat, with such incredible depth of flavour. It doesn't need too much faff to make this wonderful ingredient taste sublime. We've simply smothered the shoulder in its bedfellow harissa and thrown in a few bulbs of fennel along for the ride.
The secret to success with the shoulder of mutton is a slightly longer, slower roast. The meat will become so meltingly delicious it will fall off the bone and can be eaten with a spoon - a method known as a la cuiller.
