Blue Ribbon Recipes: Prize Winning Recipes from the Sydney Royal Easter Show.

Blue-Ribbon-RecipesThe first cookbook released by The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) is a tribute to the type of food that has graced afternoon tea tables and has become part of our collective memories – a collection of recipes from our State’s best home cooks.
Sydney Royal Arts & Crafts Committee Chair Alison Renwick says Blue Ribbon Recipes encompasses the traditions of the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Sixty prize-winning recipes, generously provided by 24 exhibitors, pass on the traditions of Show cooking and inspire anyone who has ever considered entering a batch of their scones into one of the most prestigious cooking competitions in Australia – the Sydney Royal Easter Show. The recipes come from kitchens far and wide, and contributors range from the ages of 14 to well over 80.
Blue Ribbon Recipes contains several profiles of winning cooks, including Merle Parrish whose first prize-winning Anzacs were granted immortality at the Cudal Show in 1939 when she was just seven years of age.
