Rack of Lamb
For a special holiday dinner, try your culinary hand at rack of lamb. The link above will provide you with a recipe plus tips on buying and preparing the lamb. Remember, size is a big thing when selecting racks of lamb. The lamb racks from “down under” in Australia and New Zealand will be smaller – 12 to 20 ounces each – making then perfect for two servings per rack. However domestic lamb racks will be much larger – 1 1/2 pounds to 2 1/2 pounds – good for four servings each.
