This year’s Sydneys Royal Easter Show saw the first ever ‘live’ judging of Oysters and Prawns in front of the general public in the ‘de costi’ seafood stand in the Woolworth Fresh food dome for the Royal Agricultural Society.
In what was a stand out display of exhibits, we judged some 84 samples of the best the Australian aquaculture industry has to offer.
This year saw extraordinary high standard of product across these categories.
Hosted by Lyndey Milan OAM and under the watchful eye of Chief Panel Judge John Sussman.
In the exhibitors were rewarded with 6 gold medals, 17 silver medals, 23 bronze medals.
It was a particularly positive result considering the hardships in all agriculture with floods drought and extremely trying weather conditions. Again a huge honour for me to contribute as an aquaculture judge for my 8th year, it’s a special event and as a chef there is a huge amount of respect for our producers and this is a constructive way to give everyone back to an associated industry of which we so greatly depend on.
