Ludwig dictated this on his way out the door for one of his cherished walks in the country, saying it reminded him of his childhood. I pressed him for more information, but Maestro just called over his shoulder “Lamb Chop was my favorite TV character as a toddler.” What am I even supposed to do with that? An enigma, that man.
What I like most about this menu is that it is delicious and quick. 30 minutes from start to plate, so getting a restaurant-quality meal does not need to take much more time than a box of mac ‘n’ cheese. Start the chutney, grill the cabbage and lamb while the chutney is reducing and you are done. For an additional time-saver, substitute your favorite store-bought honey-mustard vinagrette.
