Roast Lamb is one of those dishes that is never out of fashion. While it is an easy dish, I have seen many so called professionals try to prepare a roast with inferior cuts of lamb with "tasteless" results (but more money in their pocket in the short term).
To prepare a really good roast you need a good quality leg of lamb. By the last month of spring and throughout the Summer good British lamb is excellent, for the tastiest meat purchase free range or organic. Anchovies may seem an unusual addition but in fact they add a very mild saltiness to the lamb which compliments it wonderfully.
