Add all dry spices to non-stick pan and sauté for 5min until fragrant.
In a Separate pan add the Salt with the water and bring to Boil. Add the dry roasted spices to the brine with the crushed garlic, bay leaves,
thyme and allow the brine to cool down. Submerge the meat in the brine and leave in the fridge covered for 12 hours. Rinse thoroughly for 2 hours and pat dry.

For the Boulangere

finely dice the shallot and sweat in a pan with the butter for about 5 minutes without colouring. Chop the garlic, finely dice the anchovy and add to the pan, cook for a further of 3 minutes, add 600ml of the lamb stock and reduce the liquid to 400ml.
Pass through a fine sieve and add 2 Tbsp. of Chef Signature White wine paste, reserve the shallot and the liquid. Peel the potatoes and thinly slice them on a mandolin.
Line up a roasting dish with parchment paper and neatly layer the potatoes with seasoning as you go. Spoon evenly some of the shallot mixture on each layer. Pour over the liquid, place another piece of parchment on top and use a heavy dish or pan
to compress the potatoes. Cook at 130c for around 1.5hour until the potatoes are cooked. Keeping the weight on top, refrigerate overnight. Portion and set aside
