“Make it New Zealand lamb every time!” encourages British celebrity chef Delia Smith from her official website. “When treating friends and family to luscious barbecue lamb recipes or feeding the family during the week, you need to know that the meat you’re buying and cooking is of the highest quality, reared to exacting standards. Which is why New Zealand lamb is a great choice, whatever the occasion …” The advice has angered her fans as well as struggling British farmers, who are begging consumers to ignore it and buy domestically-reared lamb. Smith, who has a CBE, was hailed for teaching Britons how to cook and for services to the nation’s food industry. “So, when shopping for lamb, look out for tender, high-quality New Zealand lamb in your butcher or supermarket — with well over 100 years of lamb production and export to the UK, there’s nothing New Zealanders don’t know about the best possible meat production.”
