Garlicious Grown Black Garlic scores GOLD and highest points awarded in Regional Food Sydney Royal Fine Food Awards 2017
Thrilled to let you know our black garlic cloves have been awarded a gold medal with 94.67 points of 100! We entered as part of the overall Regional Foods part of the competition featuring 23 classes. Our score was the highest in any class of this part of the competition and we feel is a true endorsement of the quality of our black garlic.
Our smoked garlic powder also scored a silver medal which was terrific too. The new packaging is working well on retailer's shelves and we are grateful for all the support from fellow garlic growers, retailers and food service buyers.
Thanks Jeanette Andrew and Hannah for stocking our Garlicious Grown range in your beautiful Kyneton store. It looks like a fabulous match with your terrific hamper offerings and cheese range. The historic Piper St building has tremendous charm and look forward to visiting one day.
Saw this great recipe from Mary (the Goodie Godmother see on our uses of black garlic board) and decided to whip it up for the football grand final weekend. A thumbs up with the boys, easy and healthy, vegan and gluten free. Get into it.
Thanks - see more at Mary's page
Thanks Hermoine for stocking our black garlic in the Kew store. As Toscano's rightly says "the best food starts with the best ingredients". We couldn't agree more! The Toscanos family " is one of Melbourne’s finest fruit and vegetable purveyors. Since the first Toscano’s store opened its doors in 1950, 3 generations of the Toscano family have established unsurpassed standards in quality and service for fruit and vegetable retailing. Their stores offer an extensive range of quality fruit and vegetables with service that is friendly and informative, providing a pleasurable shopping experience that our customers have come to expect."
What beautiful foodie central stores now stocking our black garlic! Thanks Wes for liaising with this great business:
"Tess Steryos and Bill Tzimas are the proud owners of Stocked Food Store and they pride themselves on stocking the best delicatessen ingredients; everything from locally produced goods to European classics. "
Stocked Food have in house chefs preparing a variety of take home dishes - can't wait to see what they can create with our black garlic.
It is a thrill that Flower Drum have ordered black garlic supplies from Garlicious Grown after a successful tasting with Wes Smith - thanks Wes. Flower Drum is a leading Australian restaurant, well used to bringing the best from Australian ingredients. Their website highlights:
"IN 1975, GILBERT LAU OPENED THE FLOWER DRUM IN CHINATOWN ON LITTLE BOURKE STREET. WHAT BEGAN AS A HUMBLE DESIRE TO SERVE GOOD CANTONESE FOOD TO THE PEOPLE IN AUSTRALIA SOON GREW TO BE A REPUTABLE RESTAURANT THAT SENT FOOD CRITICS INTO AN EXCITED FLURRY. GILBERT’S HIGH STANDARDS FOR BOTH HIMSELF AND HIS STAFF ALLOWED CANTONESE CUISINE TO PENETRATE THE TOUGH AUSTRALIAN FOOD MARKET, ULTIMATELY ESTABLISHING A CHINESE RESTAURANT THAT WOULD RIVAL THE DOMINANT EUROPEAN CUISINES."
Can't wait to see their creative ideas in action! Interior photo from the Herald Sun
Lovely to see chef John Leverink featuring our black garlic cloves in this gorgeous prawn entree. Maryann Mussared snapped this photo in a review for the RiotACT. Thanks Maryann for permission to use and John for the inspired dish.
"The first dish presented was a grilled king prawn served in an almond gazpacho with black garlic, sliced olives, and grapes. There was an interesting hint of chilli which came from the marinated olives: it was a piquant and complex dish that made a good start to the meal."
Thanks to the crew at Two Tails Wines Nana Glen near Coffs Harbour for adding black garlic to their restaurant menu and the cellar door - hope it is a taste thrill!
Thanks Lorraine for adding our black garlic range to your great store. Hope it flies for you in lovely Mt Beauty.
