Austin Lamb Jam 2018

Posted by on March 21, 2018

Texans are notoriously pro-beef, but did you know our state is the nation’s top producer of lamb? Become a #FanOfLamb at this weekend’s Austin Lamb Jam, part of a multi-city, annual culinary competition in which regional chefs and pitmasters vie for “Best in Show,” “Most Creative,” and “People’s Choice” prize spots. The “Best in Show” winner advances to the Lamb Jam Master finals in Nashville this September.

Austin Lamb Jam is Sunday, March 25th at the Hotel Van Zandt and you can get 10% off ticket purchases when you use the discount code JAM-WITH-ME. I recommend the VIP Experience ticket for early entrance to the event, a private lounge, VIP swag, oyster & caviar bites from Salt + Time and exclusive beverage service from Infinite Monkey Theorem, Stolen Spirits and Lagunitas Brewery. The Main Event ticket gains you entry to the competition, blind taste testing and judging of dishes, and much more, including the chance to meet the shepherds, butcher demo from Julia Poplawsky of The Central Texas Meat Collective, pop up micro events, live music and more.

Battling it out for the win are:

  • Teddy Bricker –  Soursop (Austin)

  • Jacob Weaver – Juliet (Austin)

  • Nick Sheley –  Salty Sow (Austin)

  • Thomas Calhoun – Aviary Wine + Kitchen (Austin)

  • Evan Leroy – LeRoy & Lewis (Austin)

  • James Zoller – TRACE (Austin)

  • Sarah Heard – Foreign + Domestic (Austin)

  • Stephen Bonin – Geraldine’s (Austin)

  • Barrett Black – Black’s BBQ (Austin)

  • Chris Hurley + Jennifer Costello – The Bonneville (Austin

  • Danny Kievit – Moonshine Grill (Austin)

  • Reina Morris + Paola Smith – Buenos Aires Café (Austin)

  • Rob Snow –  Greenhouse Craft Food  (Round Rock)

  • Aimee Chiodo – Aimee’s Super Fantazmo Food Club (Austin)

This event is organized by Tasty Creative and the American Lamb Board, an industry-funded research and promotions commodity board focused on increasing demand by promoting the freshness, flavor, nutritional benefits, and culinary versatility of American Lamb.
