Lamb Jam is an annual multi-city culinary competition that joins local shepherds, top chefs and lamb fans from across the U.S. to celebrate a universal staple on a “The way last season’s chefs paired local lamb with Mediterranean, Asian, Latin or Middle Eastern flavors was remarkable,” says Megan Wortman, executive director of the American Lamb Board. “From a lamb shoulder half-smoke to a spicy Burmese lamb and ginger salad, each dish truly spotlighted the diversity of American-raised lamb and its ability to take on a variety of flavors.”

Continuing with the global flavors theme, this year’s participating chefs will prepare internationally inspired lamb dishes in an attempt to win the hearts and appetites of lamb fans in their city. The winning chefs from each region will advance to the Lamb Jam finale to compete for the ultimate title of Lamb Jam Master.
