Whisky chocolate is best at show
Launceston chocolatiers Rick and Theresa Streefland (Cocobean Chocolate) won the top prize at the Royal Hobart Fine Food Awards in August. A whisky chocolate using many local ingredients beat off 1,491 other entrants to take out the Richard Langdon Trophy for best exhibit in show. The Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania attracted the highest entry numbers in the show’s 19-year history and 71 per cent of medal winners were Tasmania-based. Blue Hills Honey collected 19 medals, including eight gold.
