Meat master Bruce Aidells's inspiration for this Mediterranean-flavored leg of lamb was a dish he tried during the annual sheep festival in St-Rémy, Provence. During the festival, legs of lamb are strung up and cooked over an open fire, then served with a green-olive tapenade, which became the basis for Aidells's lemon-scented crust. "You can also use the crust as a stuffing in a boneless leg of lamb," he says.
