Lamb Feast at Urbana Restaurant & Wine Bar This Sunday

From a press release:

Hot off his crowning as the 2012 National Lamb Jam Master, Urbana Chef John Critchley is gearing up to host Lamb Feast at Urbana Restaurant & Wine Bar [2121 P Street, NW] on Sunday, November 11 from 5 to 8 p.m. This celebratory feast will give guests a chance to taste the dish that won Chef Critchley first prize in the National Lamb Jam Master competition, as well as several of his other signature lamb dishes, while sipping on local wine and beer.

Chef Critchley earned his title at September’s Lamb Jam Finale, the culmination of a year of regional contests sponsored by the American Lamb Board that pitted chef against chef in Seattle, San Francisco, Boston and Washington, D.C. The regional winners showed their chops in a national cook-off, and Chef Critchley’s Lamb Leg Pupusa with Queso Blanco and Lamb Tongue Curtido won the hearts of six judges, including Ted Allen of Food Network’s Chopped, food editor Margo True of SunsetMagazine, food and wine writer Kathy Marks Hardesty of The New Times, executive editor Sandra Duerr of the Chicago Tribune, Eddie Lin of Deep End Dining and Laura McIntosh of the Bringing it Home TV show.

At Lamb Feast, Chef Critchley will serve his winning pupusas alongside his 2011 Lamb Jam best in show and best leg dish, slow roasted leg of lamb with creamy white polenta and gypsy peppers, and his 2012 lamb jam pro am winning slow roast leg of lamb nachos with welsh rarebit sauce. Lamb Feast will also feature a whole roasted lamb carving station, lamb bruschettas and pizzas, sheep’s milk cheeses, lamb meatballs and lamb tartare. Flying Dog beer, local wine from Revelry, Obelisco Estate Wines and L’Ecole, and a signature cocktail featuring Jefferson’s Bourbon will supplement the fare.

Tickets, which cost $40 and include all food and drinks, can be purchased here.
