I was inspired by Split Rail Farms rack of lamb at Saturdays Farmers market in Larkspur. Split Rail Farm is relatively new to the Larkspur framers market this being their third market. They have a 3 acre farm in Penngrove, CA which has on it lambs, goats, chickens, cows, and pigs. The Farm is owned by Ben Angulo and Jane Kennedy. Here is the web address for more information.

Tossing on the dry rub.
1Tbsp Ground Coriander
1tsp Ground Mustard
1/4 tsp Ground Thyme
25 Grinds from a pepper mill or 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
2 pinches of salt (kosher)
1/4 tsp of raw sugar
a small dash of Cayenne pepper
The squash was pan roasted with two sprigs of thyme a pinch of salt and a few grinds of black pepper. I cooked the barley the same way you’d cook rice. For one cup of barley I used a two cups of chicken stock, small diced mirepoix (about a 1/2 a cup) a little rosemary and a half cup of white wine. I folded in a teaspoon of freshly grated lemon zest to the barley right before putting it on the plate.
