TAS Country : April 28th 2011
16 Tasmanian Country Friday, April 29, 2011 Local meats, old-world traditions combine EMMA HOPE EXPERTISE: Thomas Beuke with some of his traditional smallgoods made using European family recipes. Picture: ROSS MARSDEN TASMANIAN Pure Continental Smallgoods at Deloraine prides itself on quality built on generations of knowledge and uses traditional European family recipes. Owner and operator Thomas Beuke, who has German heritage, has plenty of experience. ''I'm a third-generation smallgoods man and I'm also a qualified chef so I can see both sides of the counter,'' he said. Mr Beuke said he was prompted to start the business in Tasmania to provide locals with good products. ''We wanted to supply Tasmanians with quality smallgoods. We wanted to service a lot of the European customers and also our Australian customers. ''We can make any type of sausage but we also understand the customers' needs, to the point where if someone comes to us asking for a specific sausage or product we can relate to that and get it as close as possible to their requirements.'' The business has won numerous awards at the Hobart Fine Food Awards and Tasmanian and national Sausage King competitions. It also won two gold medals at the International Quality Champions Awards in Germany. ''Winning awards is one part of the business, but we want to turn that success into a marketability and educate people on what they're actually eating, for example how hams are made. ''We still do quite a few tours here for TAFE students and people interested in the food industry.'' Mr Beuke said he used local meat for his products. ''Our pigs are grown to a specific size for us in Exeter, the beef comes from a farm in Longford, most of the times its Wagyu beef. We also use wallaby and venison from around the area. ''We do about 70 or 80 products. We do fresh and cooked sausages, cold cuts, pates, and terrines. ''A lot of people want ham and bacon and I say 'no I'm not going to supply you that what about some pate or terrine?' What they don't understand is that you have to use the whole pig from the farm. ''We are a small island and we should be looking after our industry.'' The company is bringing something new to this year's Agfest. ''In the past we have concentrated on hot meals or takeaways. This time we're going to have tasting platters and we'll also have some product there for sale.''
