Lamb is a biggie around Easter time, and I love big, bold Greek flavors in general. The secret to the flavors here is to taste and then try to make sure you’re almost pushing the limit with the lemon and the salt. Add the refreshing brightness of the mint, and you have a worthy foil for the rich gaminess of the lamb. The tzatziki here is made with cheese instead of yogurt, which brings together citrus, mint and goat cheese — what could be more lamb-friendly than that?

There was a time in my life where I roasted a chicken basically every Sunday night, almost the same way every time: salt, pepper, butter, thyme (à la Thomas Keller). But no matter how good something basic is, it’s possible to get tired of it. This time, I brined both the skin and the bird in an herbacious, fiery brine that permeates the meat (and skin).
