A fairly gentle, relaxing puzzle from Quixote to start the week. 15d gave me pause for thought – it was apparent that LAMB was the meat in question, but the answer was unfamiliar, as did 19d, my LOI, which I dredged somewhere from the depths of my memory.

Lots to admire today, in particular 10d – ‘Key concern for politicans wanting votes in e.g. Birmingham? (6,7)’.
