Total Time: 12 hours, 40 minutes
- 2 1/4 pounds (1 k) of baby lamb chops
- 1/2 cup extravirgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1-2 bay leaves

- 3-4 peppercorns
- 2 cloves garlic

You can either cook the lamb chops in a skillet, over a brisk flame, or grill them over the coals. In either case, lay slices of lemon from the marinade over them as they cook, turn them occasionally, and salt them well when they're almost done. If you're doing them over the coals you may also want to baste them with the marinade.
The wine? A Valpolicella Classico.
Yield: 4-6 servings Grilled Lamb Chops Scottadito.
