Blayney High student and Trunkey resident Tahlia Brown sharpening her culinary skills in her food technology class last Friday.Would-be Junior Master Chefs thinking of entering the Blayney Show to be held this Saturday, here’s the competition: Tahlia Brown, a year 10 Blayney High student from Trunkey Creek who’s placed well over the years for her entries in the Trunkey Show.
“I’ve been entering the show since I started school and I think my orange and poppyseed muffins were my best entry,” she said.
Tahlia has also branched into savoury cuisine and last year placed fourth in the Western Region Culinary Challenge with her mushroom and chirizo pasta.
“We had a set list of ingredients and could bring in two more. I brought garlic and tomato,” she said.
“The judges liked my technique – the way I prepared food such as how I cut it.”
Tahlia’s entering the Blayney Show for the first time this year.
Watch out for her cookies and cream slice and her vanilla passion fruit slice in the open section.
To enter the show, you need to deliver your entries tomorrow between 7am and 10am at the Blayney Show ground.
Show secretary, Helen Burton, said: “I hear all the time at the show, people saying ‘I could cook that better’ and I’m so tempted to say, ‘come along and bring your entries in next year’.”
The show has “upped” the first prize to $5 for first place in three areas of junior cooking categories – damper, a gingerbread man and decorated cupcake. Juniors can also scoop $5 for first prize in the packet cake and Anzac biscuits categories plus a champion entry earns another $5.
It costs adults 50c per entry and children 20c per entry.
