Rack Of Lamb
It is referred to as Spring Lamb, and is at its most Tender and pinkest.
A Rack of Lamb or carré d’agneau is a cut of lamb cut perpendicularly to the spine, and including 16 ribs or chops. At retail, it is usually sold ‘single’ (sawn longitudinally and including the 8 ribs on one side only), but may also be sold as a “double rack of lamb”, with the ribs on both sides. Alternatively two French trimmed racks may be placed together with the ribs interlinked, when configured this way it is often known as a ‘Guard of Honour’
Rack of lamb is usually roasted, sometimes first coated with an herbed breadcrumb persillade.
The tips of the bones are sometimes decorated with paper frills called manchettes
