  • It’s Walter Manzke vs. Zach Pollack & Steve Samson in Inaugural Food GPS Lamb Showdown
Cooking Competition Los Angeles

On Monday, February 20, Food GPS presents the inaugural Lamb Showdown. It’s Walter Manzke from upcoming République and Factory Baking Company vs. Zach Pollack & Steve Samson, the chefs and co-owners of Sotto. Guests will enjoy a six-course meal, with the talented chefs going head-to-head on four savory courses featuring American lamb, and two desserts starring sheep’s milk dairy. Every diner gets a vote on which chef delivers the boldest flavor, most originality, and best presentation. The winning chef earns $500, and of course greater glory.

The American Lamb Board is sponsoring the lamb as part of Lamb Lovers Month. Eagle Rock Brewery will be pouring three beers for each guest throughout the course of the dinner.

15% of event proceeds benefit the Special Olympics, an organization that provides year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

The Lamb Showdown starts at 7:30 p.m. and the location is Guelaguetza, at 3014 W. Olympic Boulevard in Koreatown. Tickets cost $75 per person, all-inclusive, for six courses of lamb and three Eagle Rock Brewery beers.

For people who prefer beverages other than beer, the full Guelaguetza bar will be open, and attendees can bring wine and pay the restaurant $15 corkage per bottle.

Guelaguetza offers $2.50 valet parking behind the restaurant, or you can fend with street parking. Remember that February 20 is a National Holiday, Washington’s Birthday. Meters off.
