We don’t know why this food holiday is on May 7th, but any day that celebrates roasting a leg of lamb is a good one.
To us, bone-in leg of lamb is proof that meat really does taste best when roasted on the bone. It’s a classic preparation, and easy to do.
Just rub with fresh rosemary and garlic for savory and herbaceous flavor. Pop the leg of lamb in the oven and baste a few times. You’ll end up with a gorgeous roast that will draw “oohs” and “aahs.”
But the real pleasure comes when you eat it. Mild and meltingly tender, each mouthful of lamb is a flavor revelation.

Tip: Don’t put cold lamb from the refrigerator directly into the oven. Remove the lamb from the refrigerator and leave at room temperature about 30 minutes before prepping.
