The American Lamb Jam Global Flavors Tour continues on February 28

On Sunday, February 28, 12 of the region’s finest chefs will gather at Barr Mansion in Austin for the American Lamb Jam Global Flavors Tour. This is the annual multi-city culinary cook-off’s second visit to Austin where event attendees and food media will decide who has earned their “chops” by voting on the chef’s inventive American lamb dishes.

New and returning regional chefs will prepare local lamb fare infused with Mediterranean, Asian, Latin or Middle Eastern flavors. Austin’s food media will judge the dishes in a blind taste test, and attendees will do their own tastings to vote for a “People’s Choice” winner. Victors are named in each global flavor category and a “Best in Show” champion will advance to the New York finale later this year to compete with Lamb Jam winners from Seattle, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Boston, for the ultimate title of “Lamb Jam Master.”

“Texas is the nation’s largest lamb producer, and we have no doubt Texas chefs will live up to the big reputation,” says Megan Wortman, executive director of the American Lamb Board. “The Austin event is sure to give lamb fans an intensely savory experience that celebrates lamb’s versatility.”

Tickets are $60 a person and can be purchased online here. For more information visit or follow the American Lamb Board on Facebook or Twitter.
