Share Canberra's trusted news:


AUSTRALIAN Pork has sent in the joyous news that Canberra’s own Pialligo Farm Smokehouse has had their Full Rasher Smoked and Dry Cured Bacon named as Australia’s Best Artisan Bacon.

This year’s Australian Bacon Awards attracted 125 entries.

The entries were independently judged over two days by fleischmeister Horst Schurger, who has a Masters degree in butchering and smallgoods, and top chefs, Paul McDonald and Simon Bestly, who have broad international experience.

Pialligo Farm Smokehouse ACT took out top honours. The judges said it had a very nice appearance, a subtle sea salt flavour with a hint of brown sugar and a delicious, slightly smoky aftertaste.
