This meal is part of Chef Ann’s first Keto/AIP offering. It is a savory meal to impress your significant other, or family for a holiday dinner. It is a great meal to make for your family and show them just what Keto/AIP is all about!  The coolest part is how simple the recipe is. With just a fresh garlic, rosemary and sea salt coating the rack of lamb is bursting with flavor. There was a mad dash in the kitchen to grab a chop. So very tasty. If you can deal with the extra sugars, pick up some mint jelly to serve alongside, it’s a great compliment to the lamb.
