This was a recipe I got from a fellow chef at a food show many years ago. And I admit, it has evolved quite a bit over the years, but still has the same flavor. I love to use fresh figs and rosemary which to me are the key. Most Whole Foods or a gourmet market usually have fresh figs. You can use dried figs, but the fresh really take it over the top. Now I have a Sams Club by me, so anyone else who does ... check out their rack of lamb. I get 2 racks 9 each monthly for a very reasonable price, half the butcher or grocery store. This makes having a elegant dinner for friends very affordable.
