Lamby lamb lamb. Down into my belly for a good cause.




For those of us who aren’t the sharpest tools around the kitchen a few cooking lessons now and then wouldn’t hurt, right? Well then, if you are in the NYC area take the chance to swing by this nifty cooking event! Learn how to make some lamb, enjoy a terrific dining experience, and also feel good about helping out a wonderful charity along the way.

Learn how to prepare a Mustard Crusted Rack of Lamb and a Roasted Leg of Lamb with Fairway Market’s Chef Vincent Olivieri, on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 in Fairway Café & Steakhouse (2127 Broadway at W. 74th Street) at 7 pm.

Once your juices are flowing after this you will surely be ready to feast!

Then sit back and enjoy a truly memorable meal, featuring a Mustard Crusted Rack of Lamb with Fig Chutney for an appetizer, a Kale salad with butternut squash, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and cider vinaigrette, then a roasted Leg of Lamb with parsnip turnip pure and roasted Brussels sprouts, chestnut and bacon for dinner, and dessert. The meal will be complimented with award-winning Aussie extra-virgin olive oil and paired with Australian wines selected by Fairway Market wine guru Joshua Wesson.

Holy Lamb Batman! Good thing I can just wave down a taxi to take me home after what will be an amazing meal experience that will leave me stuffed!

  1. What a great way to raise money for a good cause. My older son and I are lamb lovers. I would definitely be there if I were anywhere near NYC. You’re just going to have to go for me.

  2. I’m a terrible cook and have never even tried eating lamb. I can’t imagine cooking it, but I hear it’s wonderful. I’ll have to take your word for it!

  3. Cool deal. The entire menu sounds fantastic, well, except for those Brussels sprouts. And the price seems reasonable, especially since you’ll be getting wine with the meal. And, it’s for a good cause. I wish I could say sign me up, but my taxi ride would be impossible to pay for so I’ll just rely on your attendance to report back about what I’m going to miss.

    1. Hey Patricia!

      Yes, the price is a deal, especially for Manhatttan, and it’s for such a good cause.

      You could always take your private jet over here, and then have Donald Trump pick you up in his limo!

  4. Everything sounds great, Phil.. .except for the lamb, sorry. 🙂 But, that’s just me.. probably one of the few meats I won’t eat. However, the cause sounds awesome, and I hope it will be a huge success!

    1. Hey Tree!

      Lamb is not for everyone’s taste. I wasn’t a huge fan either until recently, and I’m also always into a good cause for charity.

      1. Sorry for the mistake; phil (Ups!!!)…

        However the final destiny is the same one: down into the belly (for a good cause) …

        Cheers & I hope you enjoy your day!!!;

    1. Hey Susie!

      Sounds like a good time. A little cooking lesson followed by a special meal with wine. For charity too. I’m looking forward to it!

  5. An enticing event for an exceptional cause. I love lamb too. This is another of those fabulous New York events that folks like me- so close- but yet so- far always envy in Philly, most always beginning on a week night at the 7:00 hour, ensuring a way too late arrival back home. Looks fantastic though and surely will be a great success! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hey Peggy!

      I’m always on board for a good cause and fun event with food and wine!

      Yes, I am lucky that in Manhattan I can take a cab or subway and be home quickly. I’m sure there are events like this in Philly you can attend.

  6. I love a good rack of lamb—haven’t had any since I was still living at home during my college years! I have no clue how to cook it, either. Too bad I don’t live closer to attend this class!

  7. Such a shame that I’m not on your end of the pond. I’d be there in seconds. Lamb is my favourite piece of meat, and for a good cause? Any time!
