GRAND CHAMPION: ICE-CREAM, GELATO OR SORBET
Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show 2012
Our First Competition:
In May 2012, we entered 15 flavours into competition at The Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show (a national competition).
We won the top prize as well as winning medals for all of the 15 entries.
The judges comments on our winning entry (Stewed Plum with Cinnamon & Cloves):
“What a scoop – sorbet creams the field…
The sorbet with cinnamon and cloves from The Bellingen Gelato Bar in NSW was crowned Grand Champion ahead of 171 ice creams and sorbet entries from across Australia…
The texture of this sorbet was smooth and luscious and combined with innovative flavours it delivered heaps of wow factor”
