My Blue Lamb – Mon petit agneau bleu

You want simple with a touch of class? Here you go my friends:IMG_0744

Grill some lamb chops (pink in the center!!!) and spread some Roquefort (blue cheese) on top before serving. A little fresh thyme doesn’t hurt either. Voilà!

Be careful though: both lamb and Roquefort are strong in taste. Too much cheese will kill the balance of both tastes. I wouldn’t put more than 1/2 a teaspoon of cheese per chop…IMG_0749


  1. Love lamb chops, especially pink in the middle. Gotta say, never had blue cheese on my lamb chops before, but something I will definitely try in the future. Great pics!

  2. I love roquefort with meat, so this is a great combination indeed. Have you ever tried lamb with goat cheese (lait cru, crottin)? I was amazed how good that was when I first tasted it.

  3. Your dishes always look amazing! If you don’t mind my asking, what camera do you use? Looking for a new one and would welcome suggestions…

  4. Oh my goodness, this looks divine. I notice that lamb is on special this weekend at the grocery so that makes it a good time to try a new recipe.

  5. We call these “Lamb Pops” and usually season them Greek style. (Rosemary, oregano, lemon zest, fresh garlic, sea salt, olive oil.) We must try this next time! Sounds lovely.

  6. Thank you! I hadn’t looked this up. I just made lovely grass-fed lamb for my dad (chops) – marinated them in a paste of olive oil and my own Carne Asada spice mixture overnight. He ate three and sucked on the bones, which made me one happy cook.

    • Sucking on the bones is the best part! Your dad seems to be like mine. If I feed mine properly, I can get anything I want from him:) :) His favorites are my seared foie gras wontons with morel port sauce. After a meal like that, you can ask him to do anything you want:) “The elevator is broken. Why don’t you come fix it tomorrow? I’m making foie gras wontons!”:)

      • Oh yes – whatever you want! The wontons sound exquisite. Foie gras is no longer available in California. I’m not sure how I feel about that.

    • Thanks! I use a Canon T3! (600d) with a 50mm lens (most of the time). These were taken with a 60mm macro. As for light, I only use natural light. I am lucky to have two large windows on either side of my dining table…
