Herb Rack of Lamb

Introducing Chef John!  The man knows his meat, and this recipe is just incredible.  I serve it with roasted potatoes, onion and fennel and shepherd salad (tomatoes, cukes, red onion, parsley, red wine vinegar and olive oil).  The meat must go on top of Tanya’s Tzatziki with extra for dipping. 

Chef John says: This is it for me… Strap me into the chair and let errrr rip because I’ll die happy if this is my last meal. Every element of this meal works so well together that I get weak in the knees just thinking about making it. Looking to “seal the deal”?? Well look no further my friend, I’ve got your golden ticket right here. -ts
