The Entree

Rosemary-Garlic Rack Of Lamb

Most main dish meats will need to stand at room temperature before roasting, cooking or grilling them in order to register even & accurate cook times so give them your attention first. The lamb will need to stand at room temperature for 45 minutes & roast for approximately 25 minutes. It will then need to rest before slicing. For additional details on how to properly prepare rack of lamb for roasting, look to Cooking Classics: Rosemary-Garlic Rack Of Lamb. Meanwhile, take care of other meal preparations. Focus on the appetizer next.

The Bread Basket

Honey-Butter Knotted Rolls

Bread varieties such as Honey-Butter Knotted Rolls that have been prepared in advance may need to be heated. Complete this task about 15 minutes before the meal is to be served. Place them in a single layer on a half sheet pan, cover loosely with foil & warm in a 350 degree oven for 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the rolls to a bread basket lined with a linen & cover them to keep warm.

Miniature Buttermilk Hummingbird Cake

Remove the Miniature Buttermilk Hummingbird Cakes from the refrigerator. Place an heirloom silver cake knife & server on the table. It’s always a good idea to have a small plate available to rest these items on, if necessary, during the process to keep the table tidy looking. Add a stack of small plates for serving & dessert forks to accompany them. Napkins or freshly pressed linens complete the look.
