Persian-spiced Lamb Shanks
Great lamb is easy to find in Provence, most of which is organic, and grass-fed. This recipe, for Persian-spiced Lamb Shanks, brings together the best of this complex middle-eastern cuisine. The flavours of Persia combine sweet, sour, savoury, hot, floral, and earthy into a subtle taste explosion. Spice is tricky for wine pairing, but I served this lamb dish with a Côtes du Rhône (2014) red called Vinsobres, and it worked very well.
