Maple sugar, made from reduced maple syrup, is available at specialty-food stores. Alternatively, use granulated brown sugar.
Baked co-owners Renato Poliafito and Matt Lewis are especially fond of Châteauneuf-du-Pape as a celebratory red for fancy (or even nonfancy) dinners. Its rich, dark fruit character has a peppery edge that's particularly appealing, with warm spices like the ginger flavoring this roast.
