As Fall approaches, it’s easy to feel a little down and that’s totally normal. Before you completely “fall into fall”, it’s important to really appreciate these final warm, Summer like days, cooking and enjoying with family, friends, and neighbours. Depending on where you live, the season for fresh summer produce could be coming to an end soon – but it’s not over yet, so take advantage of the warmer weather (while it lasts) and make these recipes before it’s too late!

Rack of Lamb with Mint Pesto

Prep: 5 mins | Cook: 25 mins | Serves: 4 | Cut: Racks

Most people know that mint and lamb are a classic combination but, have you tried adding in parsley, sunflower seeds, parmesan cheese, lemon juice, garlic and salt to that? This delicious recipe calls for New Zealand Spring Lamb’s rack of lamb (perfect on the barbecue), so fire up the grill and try this twist on a timeless match to taste the flavours of summer!

Hint: For medium doneness remove the racks when the temperature registers 155°F (68°C). For medium-well the temperature should read 160°F (71°C). The temperature will rise 5°F during resting. Substitute pumpkin seeds for the sunflower seeds, if desired.
