Lamb Jam Boston: March 7

In honor of Lamb Lovers Month, and on behalf of the American Lamb Board, the first American Lamb Jam will be held in Boston, hosted in partnership with

This event will take place on Sunday, March 7, from 3pm-6pm, at the Charles Hotel. This event will bring dozens of Boston’s top restaurants and chefs together to celebrate American Lamb and celebrate Boston Restaurant Week by creating succulent and savory selections paired with local Boston beer for over 400 lamb loving attendees. Chefs will compete on behalf of their favorite charity for the chance to win a $1000 donation to that organization and garner top honors in a variety of categories such as Best of Show, Most Creative and First Place Awards for leg of lamb, shank and loin tastes.

Order tickets online in advance at The cost of entry is only $33.10 per person and includes all lamb tastings.

This certainly sounds like a compelling and tasty event to me, and I will be attending. There have been plenty of pork events in the area, but lamb events are rarer. Lamb is quite delicious and well deserving of culinary attention. Hope to see some of my readers there.

This sounds like a great event! Lamb is such an underrated meat, so it's good to know it's being recognized in the Boston culinary world. But what's with the 10 extra cents per ticket?

Hi Michelle:
That extra ten cents reflects its relation to Restaurant Week, where the prices are based partially on the year 2010.
