Looking for wedding caterer that can roast a whole lamb (or 2) in Southern Vermont - any ideas??!!
Wedding reception July 5th in the Brattleboro area - can't seem to find anyone who will roast a whole lamb - they all want us to roast a pig instead. For a number of reasons - that's not what we want to have/serve. Does anyone have any experience with caterers that can roast a lamb? Or heard of anyone who can?

    As an ~idea,~ you could contact America's Test Kitchen. Chris K has an active hunting/ cooking life in Vermont.

      OK it's pretty funny that someone in China needed to remind me that Chris is just up the road and they might jump onto this idea. Thanks for the sugegstion! Usually they work with HOW to make it the best ever - but they don't tend to work with caterers and chefs in the region, though I'm sure he's had folks reach out to him.

      Cheers!

        I'm in the DC area now.

        One of the side-effects of expat life is that when you read about a place, ANY place, the first thing that goes through your head is
        "Hmmmm.... who do I know from THERE?"

        And aside from knowing OF Mr. K, the only other person I might know in Vermont is the nonagenarian father of a friend of my mom's; I doubt he could help you!

        Track down the folks from Sarki's market -- the storefront operation is closed, but the family is still producing and catering. They'll either be able to do it themselves, or they'll know who will.
