WASHINGTON, D.C. On Sunday, June 10th, chefs from the hottest restaurants in town will duke it out for the title of Lamb Jam DC Champion. From lamb belly ramen to lamb ham cubans, these chefs will take food lovers on a culinary tour across the globe as they compete in 4 cuisine categories: Asian, Latin, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern. And the gastronomic experience doesn't end there; bartenders, winemakers, brewers and culinary artisans of all sorts will join in on the fun. Whose American lamb dish will reign supreme? Attendees and local food media will decide.


D.C. is the third stop on this multi-city cook off that brings together the nation’s top culinary talent to celebrate the 80,000 family operated farms and ranches raising lamb across the nation. Victors are named in each global flavor category and a “Best in Show” champion will advance to the finale later this year competing with Lamb Jam winners from Seattle, San Francisco, Austin, and Boston, for the ultimate title of “Lamb Jam Master.”


Available tickets include VIP ($125) and Main Event ($75) and can be purchased online here. For more information visit or follow the Lamb Jam Tour on Facebook or Instagram.
