|Leg of Lamb with Garlic and Lemon|
Coated with an herb paste and roasted on the bone, this leg of lamb emerges exceptionally flavorful and offers plenty of meat to feed a crowd. Carve the lamb into thin slices and arrange on a warmed platter to make it easy for guests to serve themselves.
|Roasted Potatoes with Sea Salt|
Long, slow roasting in olive oil with a sprinkling of sea salt produces potatoes with a slightly crunchy skin and a creamy interior. Instead of using sage sprigs, you can substitute fresh rosemary. Arrange the roasted potatoes around the sliced lamb on the platter, garnishing with sprigs of herbs.
|Roasted Asparagus and Morels with Shallot Butter |
Thin, tender asparagus spears and savory morel mushrooms are both harbingers of spring — and thus perfect for a special occasion dinner. Simply place them on a platter to pass around the table; don’t spend too much time arranging them perfectly, as a more organic presentation feels more relaxed.
|Italian Almond Tart |
Finish the meal with a lovely tart featuring the rich flavors of almonds and a seasonal jam, such as raspberry or cherry. Serve slices on dessert plates after dinner; this recipe pairs perfectly with a warm cup of coffee.
