Lamb shoulder Rendang
Originally from Indonesia, Rendang is a much beloved dish that has spread to most of Southeast Asia, finding a home in the taste buds of everyone. It may have begun as a beef-based dish, but lamb rendang is just as popular. Lambassador Paul Foster and his mum, Joyce, try their hand at a dish that was once voted the tastiest on a CNN poll.
