Vadouvan-Spiced Leg of Lamb
Vadouvan is an Indian-style spice blend from France that can include fried onion, garlic, curry leaves, cardamom, fenugreek and mustard seeds. Ryan Farr mixes the spices with butter and pink peppercorns to form an aromatic crust for lamb. If you can’t find vadouvan, curry powder is a fine substitute. Slideshow: More Lamb Recipes

The compelling spiciness of a Rhône-style blend from California will go nicely with this aromatic lamb. Plus, the wine's juicy ripeness generally makes it ideal for big cuts of meat.
