Rock out with your ewe out! Sunday, April 18th, Matt Timm's Takedown series makes at stop at The Bell House to bring Brooklyn its Lamb Takedown event. 20 contestants, 300 pounds of lamb, and 2 hours, you better cover Mary's eyes, because her little lamb is on the butcher's block.
Get ready for 20 culinary-obsessed contestants to ‘takedown' the no longer meek, but mighty, lamb. 300 pounds of lamb will be distributed to among the contestants; 15 pounds to each, contestants choose a cut of shoulder, shank, leg or ground. From that, competitors must cook up dishes so delicious, even a vegetarian could not resist. Last year, dishes like lamb tacos, pulled lamb, and stews were turned out, so this year, expect to be blown away. A rumor of lamb cupcakes is trailing this upcoming event of mutton-importance.
In cahoots with Bon Appetit's Emily Fleischaker, the people will share in the privileged duty of judging this lamb-centric competition. $2,000 worth of prizes from Analon, Microplane, Wustof, and Bumble and Bumble will be awarded.
Sorry Lamb Chop, this song does end, and it ends with you on my plate.
