  1. Mix Dijon, wine, oil, garlic, and soy. Marinate the lamb filets for 1 hour.
  2. Coat a large saute pan on high heat with oil. Season the lamb filets with pepper (salt is optional since it has been in the soy marinade) and pan sear both sides until brown, about 6 minutes total.
  3. Let rest for 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. On a large plate, place a small mound of ratatouille in the middle. Surround with 3 filets of lamb, topped with Garlic-Mint Tapenade. Garnish with basil leaves and drizzle with a little extra-virgin olive oil.
  5. Wine: Big, Bordeaux blend, 2nd growth
  6. Asian 'Ratatouille':
  7. In a large saute pan or wok, coat lightly with olive oil and saute the onions, garlic, and fermented beans for 1 minute. Add the eggplant and saute 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and zucchini and season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat and simmer until soft, about 15 to 20 minutes. Add basil and lemon juice just before serving.
  8. Garlic-Mint Tapenade:
  9. In a mortar and pestle, mash the garlic and olives. Add the mint, oil, and salt.
