Wegman's Cooking Class with Jason Ambrose of Salt

I went to Wegman's in Hunt Valley last week to go to their monthly cooking demo with area chefs. This time, it was the chef for Salt, Jason Ambrose. The program is nice because you get to sample each of the dishes as he demonstrates how they're made.
He started making a corn and oyster chowder which was nice in that he added some chipotle to give it a nice bite to it.

For a salad, he combined edamame, sweet peas, chickpeas, roasted peppers, gorgonzola, and watercress with a lemon vinagrette. The taste was really fresh, and interesting in that he chose two Asian flavors.

For the main entree, he made a stroganoff with braised lamb. The lamb was really nicely prepared- soft, falling apart, and tasty.
For dessert, he made a goat cheese doughnut topped with honey and vanilla sea salt. It was served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I loved how the sweet and salty flavors combined.
