Judges get the good oils for show

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

SOUTH Perth foodie Mered­ith Skin­ner gave her senses a work­out as a judge for the 2014 Perth Royal Ex­tra Vir­gin Olive Oil Show. Ms Skin­ner, owner of Loose Pro­duce in Como, and chief stew­ard Ellen Slobe sam­pled and scru­ti­nised 125 en­tries, in­clud­ing 100 en­tries from Ger­ald­ton in the north to Esper­ance in the south. The re­main­der came from the ACT, NSW, Vic­to­ria and Tas­ma­nia. A Royal Show spokes­woman said many re­gions had re­ported a lower-than-av­er­age har­vest con­sis­tent with the nor­mal cy­cle of good and poor har­vests for olives, and en­tries were slightly down on last year’s 150. Award-win­ning oils will be on dis­play in the Fresh from WA Pavil­ion at the Perth Royal Show from Septem­ber 27 to Oc­to­ber 4.

Mered­ith Skin­ner, of Como, and Ellen Slobe get set to sniff, taste and swirl Perth Royal Show olive oil en­tries.
