Food Works Braised Lamb Chattanooga


Food Works Chef Matt Thompson Chattanooga“Winter is a season to get together and enjoy time spent inside – and comfort foods pair well with that. Simple dishes can be elevated to perfection with a few tweaks: Beef pot roast becomes braised lamb, and regular mashed potatoes are infused with roasted garlic and fresh herbs for even more depth. A simple gravy and garnish round the meal out nicely.”

– Chef Matt Thompson

Acropolis Grill Braised Lamb Shank Chattanooga


Acropolis Grill Chef Lloyd George Chattanooga“Being Greek, lamb is always the go-to protein. Lamb is more robust and flavorful than beef, especially if it’s braised and bone-in cut – two characteristics that add more flavor and complexity. Braising is great for winter when you really want warm and bold flavors.”

– Chef Lloyd George
