Got a taste for lamb? We’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to the Oct. 25 American Lamb Jam, a gathering of 15 chefs and 15 wineries pairing “creative preparations of lusty lamb dishes” with award-winning wines. The roster includes Buty, DeLille Cellars, McCrea Cellars, ART, Flying Fish, Lola, and more. 

The restaurants didn’t simultaneously go nuts for lamb, of course. It’s part of the American Lamb Board’s Seattle blitz, a determined campaign to get people eating and talking about what’s been described as an underappreciated meat. I feel like I’ve appreciated it quite a bit around town, but it does strike me that while plenty of small Washington farms raise lamb, we don’t hear about them the way we know about, say, Billy’s tomatoes or Skagit River’s beef and pork.

So, want to win a pair of tickets to a night of lamb-centric wining and dining? Leave a comment here telling me what other foods grown or raised in Washington deserve more attention. We’ll close comments at midnight PST on Oct. 2, and use a random number generator to pick a winner.
