MEAT | SIDES | TURKEY
- In a mini food processor, combine the garlic, rosemary and olive oil and process until the garlic is finely chopped. Season the lamb racks with salt and pepper and rub the garlic-rosemary oil all over them. Set the racks fat side up on a large rimmed baking sheet and let stand for 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 450°. Roast the lamb in the upper third of the oven for 15 minutes. Turn the racks and roast until 145 degrees, or to your desired doneness.
- Transfer the racks to a carving board, stand them upright and let rest for 10 minutes. Carve the racks in between the rib bones and transfer to plates. Serve right away.
- 1 head of garlic, cloves peeled
- 1/4 cup rosemary leaves
- 1/4 cup New Leaf Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 Racks of Lamb, frenched (2 pounds each)
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat grill to medium (about 375°).
Cook lettuce leaves 2 or 3 at a time in a pot of boiling water until ribs are flexible, 2-3 minutes; as done, transfer to a bowl of ice water. Lay leaves flat with smooth sides up on kitchen towels and pat dry. Spread the 8 largest leaves with tapenade. Cut fish into 8 pieces; set 1 at base of each leaf. If leaf isn’t big enough to enclose fish, overlap leaf with another. Roll up each bundle from base, folding in sides. Brush bundles with oil.
Grill, turning once until fish is just opaque. The fish is done when it reaches an internal temp of 145°F, about 8 minutes. Serve with lemon.

Dry Brine for a 20lb Turkey
- Prepare at least one day ahead of cooking.
Unwrap the turkey and remove the neck and giblets (reserve if you are making your own gravy). Pat dry with paper towels. Combine salt, sugar, pepper and herbs in a bowl and mix well. Rub all over the turkey, under the skin and inside the cavity. Place in a brine or roasting bag (or plastic wrap) on a rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate, at least 8 hours or overnight. Tent with foil before roasting.
1 cup Kosher salt (We use Diamond brand which is less salty than Morton’s)
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons dried sage
Turkey Roasting Instructions
For a 20lb Turkey
- Preheat oven to 325°. One hour prior to cooking, remove bird from refrigerator, and pat dry with paper towels if roasting a wet-brined. Tuck wings behind back.
- Scatter vegetables on the bottom of an open roasting pan. Place Turkey on top of the vegetables, breast side up.
- Mix pepper and herbs into the melted butter and brush herb butter all over the bird and under the skin of the breast.
- Place in preheated oven and roast approximately 15 minutes per pound. There is no need to turn the bird or baste it. In fact, the less you open the oven door the better.
- For delicious gravy, pour 2 cups of wine over the bird after 2 hours of roasting.
- The total roasting time should be approx. 3 ½ hours. Start testing for doneness after 3 hours. If the skin is getting too dark, place a piece of foil over the breast for the remainder of the cooking time. Cook until internal temperature of the bird at the thickest part of the thigh (avoid touching the bone) reaches 165°F. Remove bird from oven, place on platter and tent with foil. Let rest for 15 to 30 minutes before you begin carving the turkey.
