Slow Food Miami is hosting a dinner at Lido at the Standard Hotel featuring Navajo-Churro lamb on Wednesday, October 22. A species that was close to extinction twice, the Navajo Churro sheep was the earliest breed of domesticated farm animal in North America, arriving in the United States in the 16th century. Its meat flavor is described as delicate and sweet.
Lido’s chef Mark Zeitouni will prepare the lamb four ways in Mediterranean style and accompany it with a variety of mezzes and side dishes. Tickets are $45 per person. Event starts at 6:30 p.m. with a reception, followed by dinner from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. If you’re lucky enough to not have a day job, go between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to enjoy hanman baths or a sunset swim before dinner. It’s complimentary for Slow Food diners.
Update: Corrected day of the event to Wednesday from Thursday. Tickets are available through the Slow Food website linked to above.
