TAS Country : April 28th 2011
26 Tasmanian Country Friday, April 29, 2011 2011 Treats with Tassie flavours ICONIC: Dannielle Quinn's Fudge A'fare uses the Tasmanian devil in the packaging of its handmade fudges. The company is a regular at Agfest. Picture: NIKKI DAVIS-JONES EMMA HOPE OVER the years, Dannielle Quinn has developed excellent arm strength from stirring tons and tons of creamy fudge. The fudge she makes at Fudge A'Fare is all handmade on the company's premises in Moonah, in the northern suburbs of Hobart. ''Wedoitallbyhand,soit'salotof mixing and cooking,'' co-owner Ms Quinn said. ''The packaging we get is made locally in Moonah as well.'' The business has been an Agfest regular for the past 10 years. ''It's a good opportunity for us to sell direct to the public as we are a wholesaler. ''We get to meet the people who are buying our fudge and get feedback,'' Ms Quinn said. ''We will take 10 of our most awarded fudges, cut it up into pieces, and we will have specials on it.'' The sweet treats Fudge A'Fare makes are based on milk and chocolate, unlike traditional fudge where the main ingredi- ent is sugar. The company's fudges have picked up numerous gold medals and championship ribbons at the Hobart Fine Food awards and the Royal Sydney regional food competition. After completing a pastry chef appren- ticeship at Wrest Point Casino in Hobart, Ms Quinn worked all over Australia and overseas. Some of the highlights of her career have been competing in the Berlin Food Olympics and working for the catering company that served food for the Prince of Wales. Ms Quinn said that where possible her company sourced local ingredients for its sweet treats. ''We try where we can to get local flavours for our fudge.'' Ms Quinn said it was difficult to narrow down which were the most popular flavours. ''Raspberry and dark chocolate, orange jaffa, after dinner mint, hazelnut, all of those flavours are really popular,'' she said. H 12 Pavilion H LMCT 10020 AT5670 2035388-11 Hungry?
