TOOLBELT DIVA's Note:
Lamb is the meat of Australia. Rack of lamb is one of the easiest cuts to deal with, low in fat and high in flavour. Loin chops could be substituted. Serve with roasted Rosemary potatoes, oven roasted mixed vegetables. Ideal wines for this lamb: Jamieson's Run Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz Merlot or Wolf Blass Premium Selection Shiraz both Australian. The lamb recipe is an Australian Recipe from(LCBO Food and Drink
