Although now seen as English, the style appears to have originated in the USA and is first noted in England from an item in the 'Camborne Chronicle ' of Thursday 01 February 1900; "A Crown roast of lamb is rather fanciful but pretty device of an American butcher. It is a rib roast rolled so that a row of ribs stand up all around in perfect imitation of a crown. When it is served the centre should be filled with peas or other delicate flavoured vegetable, and around the latter should be a garnish of parsley."
