Preparation method:

Bone the rack of lamb, leaving the ribs uncovered. Finely chop the herbs and use to season the lamb. Place in an oven heated to 180°C for 18 minutes, then leave to stand. Whip the egg whites until they stand in firm peaks, fold in the salt and use the mixture to blanket the meat. Place in an oven heated to 200°C for 10 minutes. Remove the rack from the ovenproof-dish and pour over a glass of dry white wine. Continue to cook in the oven at 130°C for a further 25 minutes.
