Lamb Board Hosts Zoom Cooking Class to Showcase Lamb

Almost 150 home cooks attended a recent virtual cooking class put on by the American Lamb Board. 

Educating consumers on using American lamb in their home kitchens is a big part of the board’s efforts to grow the industry. 

For the Zoom class, the lamb board teamed up with Homemade, a partner of the nature conservancy that offers weekly cooking classes and an earth-friendly blog. 

Class participants joined chef Joel Gamoran, the host of A & E’s hit series “Scraps” in making a Lamb Bahn Mi burger, which is a Vietnam take on the classic American burger. 

The dish uses ground lamb mixed with garlic, ginger, fish sauce, honey, lime, and a side of pickled vegetables. 

Besides his TV series, Gamoran is a regular on NBC’s Today Show, where he showcases recipes that promote environmental sustainability to a worldwide audience. 

Participants in the online session received a recipe booklet with outdoor cooking American Lamb recipes and an insulated reusable grocery bag from ALB. 

The cooking class is also a part of the Lamb Board’s Outdoor Cooking Adventures Campaign, which challenges consumers to showcase their outdoor cooking prowess with American lamb.
