Lamb Jam San Francisco 2011

We were invited by the American Lamb Board to participate in Lamb Jam San Francisco this year (for more information, go to http://www.fansoflamb.com/).  This year's event, which was held at the Golden Gate Club at the Presidio in San Francisco, was completely sold out - more than 700 folks turned out!  We were one of three "local" producers (along Pozzi Ranch Lamb from Sonoma County and Shannon Ranch from Lake County) who had booths - what fun!  The event featured a chef's competition, wine tasting, and some outstanding and unusual lamb dishes.  For us, it was a great excuse to spend a fun day in the City!  Enjoy these photos!

Who's that little lamb?


There were 3 rooms with different wineries and restaurants - each room was packed!

Since we cook whole lambs on occasion, I was intrigued by the folks from
The Whole Beast - here, they're carving a lamb and making pita wraps.  They were good,
but they should have used Courtney McDonald's recipe!


The crowd was amazing!



Here's how The Whole Beast barbecued the lambs - pretty cool!

I liked this simple approach to building a barbecue.  There are two lambs being
barbecued in this photo.
