Lamb dish lands chef a trip

Brian Howard’s creative use of lamb has scored him a trip to see how sheep are raised in New Zealand. The Sparrow + Wolf chef was one of 580 who entered a contest sponsored by the culinary website Chef’s Roll, to prepare a dish using either Te Mana brand lamb or Pure South venison. Several local chefs, including Partage’s Yuri Szarzewski, Lanny Chin of The Slanted Door and Main Street Provisions’ Justin Kingsley Hall, advanced to the final round. Howard’s Middle Eastern Dim Sum, with six preparations of lamb, took the grand prize. While the dish isn’t currently on the menu at Sparrow + Wolf, you can see a photo of it and the other finalists at bit.ly/2zoE0dU.

Daniel Ontiveros is the new executive chef at T-Bones Chophouse at Red Rock Resort. The veteran of high-profile kitchens such as Bouchon and Joel Robuchon joined the Station Casinos family last fall as executive chef at Scotch 80 Prime at the Palms.
