Here's a classically Kiwi meal that's elegant enough for any special occasion - but don't wait for one to try it. There are many fresh herbs that will lend themselves to these lamb racks. You can use just one, or a combination. Try flat-leaf parsley, thyme, dill, chervil, chives, coriander, and basil.

This recipe is from Kathy Paterson's cookbook, 'Meat & Three'.
