Method

1. To cook the lamb racks, place a large pan over a high heat and drizzle with olive oil. Season racks and place carefully into the pan skin side down. Colour evenly on all sides and reduce the heat. Continue to cook until the meat reaches 54*, return to a rack to rest.

2. Place the milk into a large pot with the vinegar and bring to a simmer. Once the milk curdles remove from the heat and leave to separate. Then strain- retaining the whey- and add sumac. Lightly season and set aside.

3. To cook the peas, heat a medium pan over a high heat and add some of the left-over whey.

4. Cook and pod broad beans.

5. Fry chickpeas in canola oil until crispy, drain and season with sumac.

6. Combine all elements to serve.
