Is gooey or crunchy better? The ultimate question
AUSTRALIANS have debated the merits of gooey versus crunchy Anzac biscuits for nearly a century now, but Monto Show pavilion organiser Marion Schulke said she had always been on team crunchy.
That little piece of advice could be a big help for bakers hoping to nab the $30 cash prize in the show’s special Anzac biscuit section this year.
“They have got to be crunchy,” she said.
“But I don’t know the secret, sometimes mine turn out crunchy and sometimes they turn out soggy.”
To commemorate 100 years since the Gallipoli landing the children’s literacy and floral art will also have Anzac themed sections.
“We are trying to make it a bit special this year with the Anzacs,” Mrs Schulke said.
The topic of food always leaves people feeling hungry and show goers are welcomed along to a two-course meal on the Saturday night for $15, while curry and rice will be available for lunch Sunday.
The judging for photography will start on Tuesday, April 21, and fine arts, hand crafts and children’s literacy will be on the Friday morning.
Judges will travel from Biloela on show day morning to judge all of the events.
TASTE TEST: Marion Schulke looks forward to seeing the entries at the Monto Show pavilion this year.
