Te mana lamb is an all-natural grass-fed lamb from New Zealand; it is seasoned with a Vadouvan spice blend that gives the lamb a sweet robust tone. Beautiful maitake mushrooms are paired with this roasted lamb and finished with sweet pearl onions to offset the savory tones of the mushroom and it is all blended together with fresh compressed feta.
