Lamb shepherd Craig Rogers is famous for the annual party he throws at his Virginia farm, where chefs gather to cook lamb, eat oysters, and let loose. For this Beard House reenactment, chefs Scott Crawford and John Critchley have designed a knock-your-socks-off menu featuring lamb from Rogers, bivalves from acclaimed oysterman Travis Croxton, and Virginia wines.

Tickets to events held at the James Beard House cover the cost of food and a unique dining experience. Dinners are prepared by culinary masters from all regions of the United States and around the world. All alcoholic beverages are provided on a complimentary basis and are not included in the ticket price.​​
