Rack of pork is also referred to as pork rib roast or center-cut pork loin. Since it comes from the rib area of the loin, it contains a bit more fat, which makes it especially flavorful. When the ribs are stood up and tied together, they are referred to as a crown roast.

Plan on one rib per person with an extra one thrown in for good measure. French the bones or have your butcher do it. Season simply so the true flavor comes through.
