2019 Tour Champion Crowned in NYC

On Monday, October 7th, the 2019 American Lamb Jam Tour culminated with a finale hosted at the Saveur Magazine Test Kitchen in New York City. Winning chefs from this year’s Austin, Boston, Washington DC, Denver, Seattle and San Francisco Lamb Jams put their Best in Show lamb dishes to the test in front of thirty members of the NYC food media in a bid to be named National Lamb Jam Champion.

After the votes were counted Chef Liz Barwick of Sarma in Somerville, MA was named the 2019 National Lamb Jam Champion with her Turkish Smoked and Roasted Lamb Shoulder, presented in a popover-like feta and lamb-fat borek.





Chef Competition &
Gastronomic Experience

The American Lamb Jam is an epic chef competition and culinary experience that brings together the most talented chefs at each of the tour stops to celebrate the 80,000 family operated farms and ranches raising sheep in the U.S. Chefs compete for the best lamb dish and the opportunity to go head-to-head against winners from across the nation at the Lamb Jam Finale for the ultimate title: Lamb Jam Master.  At each stop, the chefs are joined by winemakers, brewers, bartenders, and culinary artisans of all sorts on hand to curate an unforgettable gastronomic experience for hundreds of curious and passionate eaters who've come to eat, drink, and learn.
