This is another example of Edna Lewis art of turning simple ingredients into elegant dishes.

Generously salt and pepper the rack of lamb and place on a roasting rack in the oven for 45 minutes or until an internal meat thermometer reaches 140 degrees.
Meanwhile, finely chop the herbs and mix them into the softened butter.
