I love Anthony Bourdains attitude towards life and food so was over the moon when my husband bought me his "Les Halles Cookbook". This recipe is FANTASTIC! I never cook roast lamb in any other way since finding this. I do follow his ingredients but just cook it in a normal roasting pan with a well fitting lid, (although sometimes I only cook it for 5 or 6 hours, its still meltingly tender by then) then make a gravy from the strained cooking juices. If I'm using half a lamb a generally halve all the ingredients except the wine! Wonderful served with French creamed cabbage, glazed carrots and dauphinois potatoes.
