The judges didn’t quite flip over our Armenian lamb burgers

Frankly, we’re feeling a little sheepish these days.

Our video didn’t win the American Lamb Board’s annual grilling contest. But we did finish second.

Runner up in a national video/cooking competition is certainly nothing to feel bad about.

Except…well, it was a lamb-cooking contest. The judges did say, however, that our video was “a cut above” most others.
Congratulations to the winner, John Mitzewich of San Francisco, who gets two tickets to the Food Network’s burger extravaganva in New York.

We get some grill tools, which is OK.

Chef John won the big prize with his recipe for eggplant-filled moussaka burgers.

Check out both videos and let us know what you think.

    Hi Doug and Robyn,
    I'm sorry for your loss 🙁 Moussaka burgers sound so gimmicky, don't they?

    Thanks, Ara.
    We thought the same about the "winning" burgers. Oh well.
