It seems these days meat is in the air, everywhere you look around. Cochon 555, charcutepalooza, and now the first annual Lamb Jam are just three of the meat-praising and braising events that come to mind.

Between 16 and 20 restaurants and chefs will serve lamb-centric dishes, and Lamb Jam will feature a chef competition between chefs for “Best in Show,” “People’s Choice,” and “Best Leg, Loin, Shank and Shoulder.” Some of the participating chefs include Ed Witt of 701, Victor Albisu of BLT Steak, Nick Stefanelli of Bibiana and more. For real lamb enthusiasts, there will also be hands-on butchering demos.

Lamb Jam will be at the Ritz Carlton on Sunday, May 22nd from 2-5 PM. Right now you can purchase three tickets for the price of two through the end of March. Tickets are $50 each and can be purchased here.

Marissa was born and bred in New Jersey, but moved to DC for undergrad at GWU (Go Colonials, go!), fell in love with the District and learned that there was life and civilization beyond New York City. She loves eating at white-tablecloth-three-forks-at-your-place-setting restaurants, but she’ll also be the first to suggest we scarf down some chili dogs at 2 am. Simply put, she loves all things food. You can also read about why she loves DC. Follow her on Twitter and email her at mbialecki (at)

  1. Thanks for the Charcutepalooza shout out, Marisa! There’s also a lamb event in Little Washington, VA – The Art of the Lamb – bringing together farmers, butchers, chefs, and food lovers. Wine reception & exhibits. Spit roasted lamb dinner. Next day, cooking class w/me (Mrs. Wheelbarrow) – learn to make merguez. Lunch (merguez, harissa, local grits & produce.) Info here:
