Bar M Ranch Lamb was showcased by Trafalgars Bistro at a sold out 11 course lamb dinner on Sunday, Nov. 20 in Vancouver.

Trafalgars Bistro Chef Matthew Villamoran and his team are strong advocates of supporting local purveyors and farmers. When Chef Villamoran was introduced to the Bar M Ranch Lamb by Two Rivers Specialty Meats, a specialty meat supplier committed to connecting Chefs to Producers, he wanted to be the first to showcase the exceptional product to Vancouver.

Chef Villamoran prepared one entire lamb to create the 11 course meal for the 40 guests. Each course was well thought out to exhibit how all parts of the lamb perform, leaving nothing unused. Highlights of the 11-course menu were the Country Style Lamb Terrine, Lamb Consommé and Lamb Sausage, Lamb Neck Risotto and Rack Roast. Guests of the evening consisted of Trafalgars repeat clientele, who all insisted that the Lamb Pasta course – smoked lamb shank stuffed handmade pasta – must become a permanent dinner entrée.

It was a delight for Chef Villamoran to have Ashcroft rancher Trace deBoer at the event to represent Bar M Ranch. It was equally beneficial for deBoer to see how the Culinary Team and guests appreciated the Bar M Ranch lamb.

“Getting feedback on what you produce is incredible,” said deBoer.

The Culinary Team at Trafalgars delivered each course while explaining how they prepared the dish. Their appreciation for the lamb and passion for cooking was unmistakable.
