Butchery to compete in Ekka finals
MELISSA Ziser was cooking up a storm yesterday as her boss Grant Lollback perfected his classic chicken, cheese and chive sausages.
The pair from Mr Lollback's Allora Butchery are set to embark on their first trip to the Brisbane Exhibition (Ekka) for the Australian Meat Industry Council (AMIC) Queensland Butcher Choice Awards state finals.
Miss Ziser took local judges' breath away when she competed in the Outback region in March and won the wet dish and hotpot/casserole section.
“It will be good to see how I compare against the six other regions at the Ekka,” Miss Ziser said.
She will compete with her delicious caramelised onion and red wine lamb shank and chicken, bacon and mushroom carbonara today at noon.
Mr Lollback will follow at 8.30am Sunday with his chicken, cheese and chive sausages which were voted number one for the Outback region Sausage King poultry section.
“It will be exciting if we can win – it will be exciting however we go. It's great we got this far,” Mr Lollback said.
