I know that Cab Franc can be paired with all sorts of roast meats, but I'd like to make something a little more "interesting."  We have a monthly wine tasting/food pairing group, and this month it's Cab Franc at our house, so we also provide the main dish.  Any suggestions?

I think it might depend on the appellation where it's coming from. A French cab franc is going to be a little more peppery and leafy green, while New
World cab franc will be more fruit forward. I have more experience with the latter. I really like to pair it with lamb or venison. Duck is also nice, but better with old world cab franc, in my opinion.
