Suckling lamb, or cordero lechal, is one of the treats of Spanish cuisine, from native breeds of sheep originating in the central highlands of Spain ("la meseta").
Suckling lamb comes from unweaned lambs from the regions of Castile, Leon, Extremadura and Aragon that are the most famous for "cordero lechal" since their pastures are dry and aromatic (keeping fat levels low).
From a product that is already magnificent, we can only obtain one of the most exquisite pieces of it.
The shank, the most delicate and mellow part of the animal, whose flavor, texture and simplicity in the preparation, results in a perfect dish for any occasion, from an informal dinner to a special occasion.
Within the Ibero Mediterranean culture, it is a highly recognized product.
