The origin of the original name - the lamb's car - has several versions, each of which has its origins. So one says, for example, that in ancient Rome the word "quads" meant in military affairs the construction of troops in the form of a square. At the same time, the soldiers form dense ranks and stand close to each other, while the bayonets are held upright.
Apparently the young lamb's ribs are associated with the sharp bayonets of the Romans, when a juicy piece of meat is laid entirely on a large dish.
Rack of lamb in translation from different languages denotes lamb ribs. By tradition, the square of the lamb is prepared entirely without dividing it into separate parts. For example, it is baked on a grill, coals or in an oven.
