Seattle – Lamb Jam

Fourth annual lamb jam. I had barely recovered from the brisket on Saturday but do love lamb and unlimited amounts of wine doesn’t hurt either. Thankfully had all dishes on display for voting so was better presentation than a disposable plate and easier to photograph. F stop a bit off on some of them so a bit blurry. Favorite two were Bell & Whete and Brimmer & Heeltap.

The Hunt Club – Dan Gilmore: Za’atar spiced lamb confit, freekeh & date pilaf, pickled carrot, sorrel and pomegranate salad

    Most of the dishes look very pretty! It’s always nice when you can try such a wide variety in 1 setting.
