Seattle – Lamb Jam

Lamb Jam is an epic tasting event and competition that brings together talented chefs in each of the five tour cities to compete for the honor of Best Lamb Dish in their market and the chance to attend the finale where the 5 winning chefs battle for the title of “Lamb Jam Master.”

An afternoon of too much food and wine centered around my favorite meat. Once again Kraken Congee won our vote, amazing to see them nail two completely different cuisines in under three weeks. Their congee had great flavor the bits of lamb in it where just a bonus. Bell & Whete’s entry was my second favorite, the bun was nice and chewy and the Middle Eastern flavors contrasted nicely with sweetness of the bread.

Indeed Kraken and Belle & Whete were two of the winners. https://twitter.com/FANofLAMB/status/658439490080370688
