MasterChef vis­its best in our re­gion

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

IF YOU switched on your TV last Thurs­day night you might have seen a fa­mil­iar sight.

One of the coun­try’s most wor­shipped food gu­rus, 2010 MasterChef win­ner Adam Liaw, was get­ting a taste of the lo­cal treat we are lucky to know so well along­side some fa­mil­iar lo­cal faces.

Liaw stopped in at Mam­mino’s Ice Cream on his way through the Bund­aberg re­gion on his SBS show Des­ti­na­tion Flavour – and he was full of praise for the area’s de­lights.

An­thony Mam­mino took him through the fam­ily’s macadamia or­chard.

“It all comes back to adapt­ing to changes in farm­ing, and that’s what we do,” he told Liaw, while back at the fac­tory, Tina ex­plained a lit­tle about the “se­cret recipe” of their trade­mark sweet treat, passed on by her grandma.

Liaw was in­trigued by the gin­ger and macadamia va­ri­ety and had to have a taste.

He de­scribed it as “the taste of cen­tral Queens­land”.

“It’s one of the more un­likely ice cream flavours I’ve had,” Liaw said on the show.

“But An­thony and Tina have taken a lit­tle bit of his­tory and com­bined it with a lit­tle bit of in­ge­nu­ity.

“And the re­sult is some­thing com­pletely un­ex­pected.”

Liaw also vis­its the Re­hbein farm in Bund­aberg, home to Bunda Ginga.
