e cooks: herb crusted rack of lamb, macaroni gratin & chocolate fondant

It's been a long (but wonderful!) week over here, so I'm going to keep the words to a minimum - hope you don't mind!

We recently had one of E's best friends and ex-flatmate over for dinner, and E whipped up some delicious lamb and macaroni gratin. The best ingredient in the macaroni? Nutmeg. It takes it up to another level.

The lamb's crust was butter, breadcrumbs, anchovies, garlic and herbs, and it was excellent.

Dessert was spectacular! -ly rich, too.

Chocolate fondant (lava cake), topped with Marc de Champagne ice cream. What?

Let's just say it was a good thing we went running the following morning.

Happy Sunday!
