  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220˚C).
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the ground lamb, season with salt and pepper, and fry for 5 minutes, until cooked through.
  3. Add the onion, carrots, garlic, thyme, and rosemary, stir, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until the veggies are softened and the meat is well-browned.
  4. Add the tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce and stir to incorporate. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the liquid evaporates and the meat is aromatic.
  5. Pour in the red wine and reduce until almost completely evaporated.
  6. Add the chicken stock, bring to a boil, and cook the meat until the stock has evaporated, 5 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender. Drain, then return to the hot pan over low heat to dry out a bit.
  8. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and mash until smooth.
  9. Add salt, the butter, egg yolks, sour cream, and Parmesan cheese. Fold until well combined.
  10. Transfer the potatoes to a piping bag or zip-top bag fitted with a star tip.
  11. Spoon the lamb mixture into a large baking dish. Pipe the golden mashed potatoes over the lamb.
  12. Bake for 30 minutes, until the potatoes are golden brown.
  13. Enjoy!
