Fine foods on the menu for awards judges

THE first of five sections in the 2022 Royal Tasmanian Fine Food Awards has been run and won, with judges tuning up their tastebuds at the Royal Hobart Showground on April 21-22 for the Tasmanian Flour Mills Bakery and Preserves category.

The Bakery and Preserves section attracted 240 entries from across Australia – up from 216 entries last year – with judges enjoying a range of biscuits, cakes, sweet pastries, bread, rolls, chutneys, jellies, sauces, dressings and marmalades.

Tasmanian winners included Derwent Park’s Island Berries Tasmania (Preserves – Savoury); Lesley Black’s (Preserves – Savoury); Westbury’s Tasmanian Baking Studio and Bruny Island Traditional Plum Puddings (Baked Products – Savoury); and Banjo’s Bakery and Sandy’s Sourdough (Breads and Rolls).

Previously held as one big celebration of food, the Awards are this year being held in several categories across five months, allowing for more seasonal entries, closer attention to individual categories, and a COVID-safe approach.

The next section to be judged will be Dairy and Plant-based Foods, in early June, followed by Beverages (7-8 July); Seafood, Small Goods and Delicatessen (4-5 August); and Olive Oil, Pantry Items, Other Products and Sweet/Spicy (1-2 September).
