The beauty of simplicity
This seductively simple lamb loin recipe was the main course of my first Wine Salon. It is a deceptively simple lamb preparation. Best of all, it features the aphrodisiac of rosemary. Its perfume permeates the air as the dish cooks. (And a little-known fact about rosemary, it improves memory! What could be better for sparking meaningful conversation at your Wine Salon than a strong mind and great memory?)
A recipe for Pinot Noir
If you’re planning to serve this dish as a part of a Wine Salon dinner, be sure to pair it with Ketcham Pinot Noir, or your favorite Russian River Pinot.
Whether you choose to make this lamb for your own Wine Salon, or as a simple solution for Sunday Supper, you’re going to love how easily this dish comes together.
