Beef & Lamb Cooking Demos 19-Oct-2011

October 17, 2011 10:14 pm

Each year we run a series of cooking demos with Beef+Lamb NZ Ambassador Chefs sharing their hot tips and latest recipes. This year so far we’ve run events in Thames, Wharepapa South, Taranaki, Hamilton and Marlborough.

Pam Thomlinson our Top of the South National Councillor says “Our Beef + Lamb demonstration was hosted by the Awatere branch at Ngaire Lawson’s beautiful new home. The chef was Grant Dicker from the restaurant Mint in Nelson. He prepared garlic seared lamb backstrap with beetroot carpaccio, pickled walnuts and rocket. Poached and grilled sirloin of Angus beef with squash, fondant potato and peppercorn foam, ginger parkin with muscovado sauce and five spice icecream. It was wonderful to learn how to let the taste of the food shine through without being overpowered by too many flavours. A lovely lunch that was enhanced with local wines and coffee and sweet nibbles.”


While we haven’t yet had confirmation from Beef + Lamb that they will provide Ambassador Chefs for the cooking demonstrations, we are seeking expressions of interest for 2012 so that we can advise them ahead of time the areas where you would like to hold the demonstrations. To express your groups interest, download the form below and send it to Emma Humphrey by email to [email protected] or by post to Rural Women NZ national office, PO Box  12-021, Thorndon, Wellinton 6144.
