Mint and lamb are partners of long standing. If, however, you fancy lamb with mint jelly, you may have to smuggle your own jar of the now passé condiment into hoity-toity restaurants and risk condescending stares. To be culinarily correct and still relish your lamb, you could demand fresh mint. This aromatic combination of rib chops and risotto is how I put new life into the old food marriage at home.
