San Francisco’s American Lamb Jam Tour promises to be even bigger and better this year. The second annual “everything you ever wanted to know–and more importantly, taste –is being held, Sunday July 17th at the Golden Gate Club! From 3pm-6pm, top Bay Area chefs will ferociously compete to see who can prepare the tastiest lamb dish. Samples will be paired with over 100 wines from Paso Robles. In between tastings you can watch a butchery demonstration by Don Watson (local Shepherd) and chef Matthew Accarrino from SPQR.

Popular emcee Liam Mayclem, from TV’s Eye On The Bay, will calling the shots as 16-20 SF restaurants/chefs compete for “Best in Show,” “People’s Choice” and “Best Leg, Loin, Shank and Shoulder” categories with voting by a panel of key media representatives and event attendees.

Come vote for your fave. Just a few of the big-name chefs include: Jeffrey Lunak (Morimoto Napa), David Bazirgan (Fifth Floor), Antelmo Faria (Tacolicious), Yang Peng-Wood Tavern, Banks White (FIVE, Berkeley), Dino Vazquez (Eastside West Restaurant & Bar), Eric Berg (Wente Vineyards) and Jeff Mall (Zin).

They deserve extra-credit points for the feature event: Lamb (The Whole Beast) cooked on a spit by Chef John Fink.
The Whole Beast, started by Chef John Fink, features farm-raised animals cooked whole over flame. All parts of the animal are cooked and prepared for delicious side dishes. At the Lamb Jam, Chef John Fink will be cooking a whole, farm-raised lamb over almond, oak and juniper wood. Chef Fink and Don Watson of Napa Valley Ranch will carve the meat and prepare lamb gyros for tasting. To learn more about The Whole Beast please visit the site.
