Our trip to the Royal Easter Show…

I was privileged to attend the judging of the “Pickles and Preserves” section of the Sydney Royal Easter Show and was asked to provide my input for the judges.

The participants are from 5 divisions of NSW and lower QLD and are all hard-working CWA ladies that make amazing chutneys and relishes for tastings.

The awards are based on the criteria of quality, appearance, and of course, taste! It was great to meet these lovely ladies that are the backbone of Australia’s farming community.

All feedback is taken on board and my final comments to the ladies that made these products was along the lines of, “Love what you have done with incorporating new flavours into chutneys and relishes – I can see that some of the Indian flavours are now being incorporated – can we try to look at some Italian flavours for next year??!!”
