Presented by Megan Wortman
Join us to hear The Story of Lamb with special guest, Megan Wortman, Executive Director of the American Lamb Board. This organization took up the challenge to breathe new life into the age-old industry of lamb, a food that was almost unknown to many American diners as recently as 20 years ago. But, today lamb is back and Megan will discuss the fascinating resurgence and growing popularity of preparing and dining on lamb today. Learn and meet US producers, discover new markets, explore the creative possibilities with chefs and the ease of cooking lamb in your own home. The Story of Lamb is a story of traditions and cultures that go back centuries but it is also a story now told in modern dress.
