I'll be heading to Lismore on Saturday, so I'll definetely be heading to the show for a look around - won't be doing any cooking though. What time of day would be the best to find you Derek?

I will be there the whole weekend Amanda. Just wander around til you find the camp oven cook-off area and look for the bush hat. :***

A good time would be 1.00 pm when Kim and Rachael will be judging the main meal section of the cooking.

It doesn't matter how much you try you never seem to get enough photos of everything. Waht surprised me at the end of the event was that I didn't take any photos of food being prepared. I think this was in someway because some of the competitors were a little cagey about things. ::)

There were not a lot of people however we had a total prize pool of around $4000 in value.

Here are a few of my photos of the weekend.

This is typical wherever I go these days. It pours down rain. This meant that the competitors had to work in extreme conditions.

Image

This is an interesting concept for a camp oven. This is an oblong cast iron barbecue tray with angle bolted to the top.

Image

This guy used several old metters camp ovens for his cooking. They were possibly over 100 years old

Image

Some camp ovens in use. Seems these gas bottle holders are quite common

Image

Saltbush Bill and Saltbush Lil with just one lot of prizes they won during the weekend

Image

The following photos are the submissions for the pastry section. The first one is by SBB and SBL that won first prize. Everyone cooked a meat pie, fruit pie and sausage rolls

Image

Image

Image

The best main meal of curried lamb shanks and vegetables

Image

Kim & Rachael from The 4 Ingredients our judges http://www.4ingredients.com.au/ tasting the runner up main meal of lamb roast. This was served with a gravy on one plate and a sauce on the other

Image

Pork Roast

Image

The pork roast was accompanied by a whole roast pumpkin stuffed with a selection of vegetables

Image

Winning dessert was the top one which is a steamed date pudding. Also served with this was a damper bread and butter pudding

Image

The pavlova that we all know so well was runner up

Image

Golden syrup dumplings with cream

Image

Good old apple crumble

Image

Prize winning dampers. Must admit I have never seen dampers as light as these

Image

Runner up dampers

Image

The green damper has asparagus in it. The taste was quite good

Image

A selection of prizes. Cassegrain wines provided a two pack for winner and runner up.
