In case you haven’t already, it’s time to mark your calendars for April 13th and reserve your tickets for Lam Jam Boston. This is one of my favorite culinary competitions around so I’ve been counting down the days ever since last year’s event. There will be 20 chefs from Boston, Providence, Portland and Portsmouth, all vying to win the trophy for the Best Lamb Dish. Plus there will be local beer, wine, demos and other tasty treats. Oh yeah, yours truly will be judging too. Trust me, you won’t want to miss it. 🙂
In the meantime, we were lucky enough to be invited to a Pre-Lamb Jam Dine-Around for a small taste of what to expect at this year’s festivities. The day started at Rialto for a cooking demonstration and 3-course lunch. Next, we watched a masterful butchery demo at Formaggio Annex. Our final stop led us to Tavern Road for an American Lamb Happy Hour prepared by Chef Louis Dibiccari.
