The American Lamb Board is asking all lamb-loving cooks to celebrate the spirit of the season and the launch of a new Fans of Lamb website with the 2011 "Best American Lamb Family Recipe" and "Best Festive Family Photo" contests. Starting immediately, fans of lamb are invited to share lambtastic family recipes for the chance to win two racks of lamb to serve a family of 10 and a limited edition flared roaster pan from All-Clad, perfect for holiday happenings. Photogenic families that submit their most memorable photos will take home stellar lamb swag and be entered to win enough lamb to feed the whole family this season.
From now until Dec. 8, amateur cooks can submit festive family photos and their recipes with a short 200-300 word description of why their dish is a family favorite by visiting www.fansoflamb.com/recipe-contest. The winning recipe will be announced the week of Dec. 12 via Twitter and Facebook.
A one-stop shop for the love of lamb, the re-launched www.FansofLamb.com, offers new resources for finding local lamb, an enhanced recipe database with interactive functions, how-to lamb videos for any occasion, pasture to plate stories from chefs and shepherds around the country, new lamb gear for purchase, fun lamb facts and trivia and details about events in local markets.
