This recipe comes from the The Silver Spoon cookbook, a veritable Bible of Italian cooking. Seasoned with nothing more than a handful of fresh herbs, the lamb leg roast is a perfect cut for serving a group. Try it alongside Olive Potatoes for a spectacular Sunday supper.
Beverage pairing: Château La Nerthe Châteauneuf-du-Pape, France. Lamb is often great with Cabernet, but the herbs in this recipe push the wine choice to France’s southern Rhône, where these herbs grow wild and show up in the wine with great verve. This Grenache-based bottle is a blend of the 13 traditional varietals of this part of southern France.
