Such a special dish !! You can produce the most amazing centrepieces using this cut of hogget or lamb … Often known as either a Guard of Honour or a Crown Roast. The latter is comprised of two or three racks joined together in circle, whereas the Guard of Honour is created by leaning two racks together and interleaving the cleaned, white rib bones to represent soldiers swords forming an arch.
They take a very short time to cook, being made from what is known as the “best end” or loin of the hogget or lamb, and are very tender.
