"What truly omnivorous person doesn’t love a lamb chop and its many sensual pleasures? Especially when they belonged to a happy, healthy lamb, who frolicked in a nearby pasture with its family, and was lovingly cared for? Especially when their chops are as beautifully marbled as these, as tender, as tasty?
First, you unwrap them from their snug enclosure of old-fashioned butcher’s paper and let them slowly thaw. Left undisturbed, a few hours coax them to relax until their supple meatiness is discerned with only the barest touch of the fingertip. It is then that they welcome an aromatic and even more tenderizing caress, a lick of olive oil, a scattering of garlic slivers and fresh rosemary
After a couple of hours of being nudged around their marinade, by this time they have completely surrendered to your touch, and they
happily snuggle together into the prepared cast-iron pan. Your mouth waters as you contemplate what will complement your meal. Some braised vegetables, a glass of red wine. So good you will want to chew on the bones!"
