All great suggestions. Garnacha is my go-to cook out wine. I also like an unoaked Garnacha poured over a bowl of berry sorbet.

Lamb shanks, lamb cutlets, best end of lamb, saddle of lamb, go great with grenache.
For fattier cuts, cabernet sauvignon can work well
For spicier recipes, shiraz (still talking about lamb here)
I like the cassoulet suggestion but most bean and veg stews with a bit of garlic, onion and bones/cheap cuts/chorizos or ethnic sausages will go well with cotes du rhone wines, and they also go well with tempranillo, as does lamb.

Thanks for the tips Williamsimpson. I try very hard to diversify my suggestions so that people can get the most out of these articles and expand their food-way of thinking.

I just served a seafood paella with chorizo with a La Cartuja Priorat and it paired very well. Mild tannins worked well with the shrimp/scallops/clams, saffron and chorizo. Nice wine. Wish Priorats were not so hard to find!
