The popularity of this competition held at the Tora Woolshed has grown year on year with people now coming from as far away as Wellington to sample the unique dishes of the smorgasbord of delights. For what makes this competition different is that the people are the judges. Tastings of all entries are available with the points allocated according to their level of enjoyment.
