Of the ovidae family, lamb is a young sheep, the offspring of the ewe and the ram, male or female and less than 300 days old. Good lamb meat is shiny, well coloured, elastic and soft to the touch. Its fat should be light in colour and not too dense. It is advisable to eat pink lamb. For oven cooking, pieces such as the leg, loin or saddle are generally used, and for longer cooking, the shoulder, breast and neck should be chosen. Lamb is generally seasoned with garlic, mustard and aromatic herbs. It can be associated with sweet products such as honey or prunes and in tagine. It can also be marinated if the meat is tougher.
