TABLE Magazine presents the fourth-annual Western PA Lamb Fest at Southside Works on Sunday, October 24th, 2021.
Renowned worldwide for producing America’s best lamb, Western Pennsylvania is also on the map for some of the most remarkable new chef talent in the county. The event is slated to be an all-star cook-off, with 8 collaborative chef teams from over 25 of Pittsburgh’s most prominent restaurants, as well as visiting guest chefs. This year’s “Lamb Fest” will sizzle in the Southside Works on 27th Street, between Sydney and Carson Streets. Join us for an unforgettable, unmatched culinary experience!
This year’s Lamb Fest teams will be held mainly outdoors and will cook up tastings and serve beverages against a backdrop of natural and manmade beauty. Parking will be plentiful. Tents and seating will be, too. Our 1,000+ guests and our chef teams will have an open air, easy, convenient experience – and that will free up each of us to enjoy memorable lamb dishes, impressive cocktails, tasty brews, and much more.
