Slow roasting bone-in leg of lamb until falling-off-the-bone tender is one of the best ways of cooking lamb to get luscious and yet flavorful meat. This one is seasoned with garlic, thyme, bay leaves, kosher salt and black pepper – while the dry white wine adds flavors, juiciness and moisture to the end results. If you are thinking of trying sophisticated and elegant recipes for a fancy dinner, this one is great to start with! Make ahead tip: Roast the lamb two days before serving and refrigerate covered, reheat and serve topped with pan juices and potatoes.
