Michael Lewis: Lamb-Based Dishes
“Firing up the barbecue gives me an excuse to enjoy my backyard, the wonderful weather here in South Florida, and spend some time with my amazing dog, Bacon. Lamb seems to be my go-to guy at home, not because it’s my favorite necessarily, though I do love it. Lamb is one of the few meats available at our deprived local grocery stores that doesn’t always suck—not to mention that it cooks quickly and takes any flavor you can throw at it. [But it] could be Japanese one day, Spanish/Mediterranean another, and French yet another.” —Michael Lewis, executive chef at KYU
