Sauté the brunoise and onion in hot oil until lightly browned. Drain off the oil and deglaze with balsamic vinegar and the three fruit syrups. Stew very gently for 30 minutes. Add the diced rhubarb, trompettes de mort and ginger, then the stock and soya sauce. Simmer one hour. Season with ground cardamom, nutmeg and salt. Thicken with corn flour dissolved in a little water.

Sauté the seasoned lamb cutlets in butter. Transfer to the oven (200ºC) to finish cooking, adding chopped rosemary after a couple of minutes. Rest and then carve. Serve the lamb with sauce, braised vegetables and fruit dumplings.
