It’s all about the ‘yum’

AgLife - - News - BY DEAN LAW­SON

It is just so tan­ta­lis­ing! Dur­ing ex­plo­ration of the many dis­plays and of­fers at the Wim­mera Machin­ery Field Days there comes a time when the lure of self-in­dul­gence be­comes too great to ig­nore.

Yes, you might be there to look at what’s new in hy­draulics, con­sider ir­ri­ga­tion sys­tems or per­haps find some­one to help grind your way through fi­nan­cial op­tions. What­ever!

But there is al­ways that mo­ment when the great urge ar­rives to take time to ‘sam­ple’.

Okay, pens down and de­ci­sion made; where’s the Coun­try Gourmet Pav­il­ion?

Right in the hub of the field days, that’s where, so let’s make a bead to the pav­il­ion and see what we can find that can stim­u­late the taste buds, warm the soul or al­low us to en­joy fruits of good health.

There is al­ways some­thing special about dis­cov­er­ing a new type of food or drink prod­uct that not only sits well with the palate, but also sat­is­fies a thirst or in­ner rum­ble.

It might be the lively tang of a unique spritzer, the earthy tones of a bou­tique red or a tin­gling white, the calm­ing in­flu­ence of a long-for­got­ten va­ri­ety of tea, the malty rich­ness of a new beer, the un­for­get­table flavours of del­i­catessen pro­duce or a cre­ative con­coc­tion in­flu­enced by var­i­ous cor­ners of the globe.

What about those edgy and mor­eish flavours of the olive tree and sat­is­fy­ing the sweet or sour tooth with condi­ments or pre­serves?

Per­haps you’re just look­ing for some whole­some tucker with a dif­fer­ence?

It can be hard to re­sist, so why bother re­sist­ing?

The Coun­try Gourmet Pav­il­ion at the field days fea­tures a cross-section of re­gional fine food, bev­er­ages and pro­duce and in ad­join­ing the field days au­di­to­rium is a must for lovers of cuisine.

Hmm. Some of us are al­ready lick­ing the lips.
