Lamb is an easy dish to cook and a dish to impress the Lords and Ladies in your social circle. The Royals have always been fond of lamb. Edward VII loved to nosh on cold leftover cutlets late at night.
Look for frenched racks of lamb and if you ask your grocer or butcher nicely s/he will tie it into a crown for you. You can also make a crown roast from veal or pork, if you like with lots of room to include a stuffing.
