Roast Leg of Lamb Recipe with Garlic and Rosemary, Candied Carrots and Herbed Potatoes | What’s Cooking
This cherished recipe for a garlic- and rosemary-studded boneless leg of lamb and accompanying sides is published in our Nordstrom Friends and Family Cookbook. In its pages, contributing chef Michael Thoms shares his food and family memories associated with this classic (and delicious!) Easter dinner.
“One of my fondest childhood memories is of my grandmother’s cooking. She made cooking incredibly fun; we all got to help in the planning, preparation and serving of the meal. I think this is one of the reasons I became a chef. Her philosophy of food and cooking—let the ingredients speak for themselves—was something I have carried into my professional life. She always bought only the freshest seasonal ingredients and prepared them simply. This recipe of hers, a family treasure, reflects that style. Once a year the butcher would get fresh spring lamb, and she would be the first in line to pick out a leg.” —Chef Michael Thoms
