Braised Lamb Chops with Black Olives & Artichokes
Here's an odd recipe, pairing lamb, black olives and artichokes. Who'd've thunk? This is an unusual blend of flavors but the braising helps to knit the dish together. Throwing a few capers on for garnish might be a nice way to help brighten this up for service but no matter what you do you're going to have a dish that is rich and deeply flavored.

A wine that is a bit gamy with a wild and herbal edge to it should work perfectly here. There are a handful of wines coming out of Lebanon that would make for an inspired pairing.
