TAS Country : June 21st 2012
Friday, June 22, 2012 Tasmanian Country 15 News FOOD FINALISTS: Sadie Chrestman and Isabel Robinson taste Bruny Island Cheese's C2 raw milk cheese; organic pig farmers Eliza Wood and Guy Robertson on their Mt Gnomon Farm near Penguin; and Tasmanian Natural Garlic grower Rosie Mackinnon. Artisan taste tips its hat ROGER HANSON TASMANIA has again shown it is Australia's premier region for primary producers and artisans. The state has produced 18 of the finalists for this year's NewsLifeMedia magazine ABC Delicious Produce Awards announced this week. ''We've had an overwhelming re- sponse this year, with submissions doubling from last year,'' Jim Kon award publicist said. The awards, which started in 2005, are now the leading awards in the industry uncovering outstanding pri- mary producers. Tasmanian judges are Annie Par- mentier from Dev'Lish and Daniel Alps from Alps&Amici. The official award ceremony will take place in Brisbane on July 16. The Produce Awards encourage, showcase and reward producers, build awareness of culinary regions and recognise fresh, seasonal food that is produced with integrity. Now in their seventh year, the Produce Awards continue to garner support from Australia's leading pro- ducers, chefs and readers. Tasmania's rating in the finalists reinforces the growing demand for quality of Tasmanian produce and products. ''This year, the judging days un- covered a variety of new produce, trends and old favourites . . . from honey and eggs, to the finest wagyu beef and handmade cheeses to vibrant olive oils and sparkling fresh seafood,'' Mr Kon said. The judging panel, which includes Matt Moran, Phillip Johnson, Cheong Liew, Alla Wolf-Tasker and patron Maggie Beer, recognised a trend among small producers to sell directly to consumers through farmers market and online mediums, strongly influ- enced by the growth of social media and blogs. ''Each year the awards acknowledge those who are committed to quality and consistency in what they grow and create, along with consumers and suppliers who promote small pro- ducers through restaurants, providores and the large and small markets nationwide.'' The Tasmanian finalists are -- From The Earth: Anchor Organics, Companion Bakery (Artisan), Lean-To Kitchen (Artisan), Perigord Truffles of Tasmania, Shima Wasabi, Tasmanian Gourmet Kitchen, Tasmanian Natural Garlic (Artisan), Thirlstane Gardens, Yorktown Organics. From The Paddock: Cape Grim Beef, Hammond Farms, Landfall Farm Fresh, Mt Gnomon Farm, Wursthaus (Artisan). From The Sea: Petuna Seafoods. From The Dairy: Bruny Island Cheese Company (Artisan), Elgaar Farm Organic Dairy, Grandvewe Cheeses. The awards cover 12 categories. The winners of the Produce Awards will be announced in the August edition of ABC Delicious magazine on July 18.
