A bite-sized look at show cooking

Agricultural shows are an important part of community life across Australia, according to award-winning consultant and multi-media presenter Victoria Hansen who explores the topic in a recently-recorded podcast with author Liz Harfull.
"In country areas they give people an excuse to get off the farm and catch up with the neighbours, and the city shows are both a spectacle and an institution that bring the city and the bush together for a few brief days each year.
"But for many individuals they represent much more than an opportunity to relax and have fun. They are about the serious business of rewarding effort and enterprise."
