I went to Tempera da Secondino Moro to see more about the mutton, an animal that has a fatter and abundant dog than that of sheep, ideal for skewers. Here I have remedied a leg and I want to ennoble it with a super roast. First we debon it, using only the central part (with the cutouts we will make a sauce). We open the piece of dog with a knife and we do it with a chopped slice of lard, a hint of fennel, a small piece of red garlic from Sulmona, two sage leaves, a rosemary floret, a lemon zest, a pinch of coarse salt. A sprinkling of pepper and we roll up the leg, closing it with a string and placing it in a pan lined with phono paper. We season with a drop of oil, a trifle of white wine, fennel, sage, rosemary and two juniper berries. We cut the surface of the leg with a blade and fire. Once ready, we wait for it to cool down a bit, slice and serve, along with a little of its bottom. It is of a disarming tenderness! Did you like Giorgione's stuffed mutton leg?
