Grilled Lamb Chops with Lemon Puree

When I think of luxurious foods, I often think of meats that have been braised or stewed for hours during the deep winter…not often do I think of grilled meats during the middle of summer. But, this simple recipe for Grilled Lamb Chops is nothing but luxurious. As mentioned yesterday, this recipe is one that you have to flip around the book to figure out – but it is well worth it.  This is a dish you make for really good friends – and you don’t have to wait until Winter to treat them.
