Melissa Clark of the New York Times says that the end of the year in North America is roast beast feast time, and it is almost de rigueur to make a very large piece of meat as the focal point of the meal, in order to impress. I have followed her recipe, and here it is in all its glory, in my kitchen being carved. My guys were impressed! Fabulous!! Thank you Melissa!!
