It’s showtime in Cooma
It’s Showtime again in Cooma and what a
wonderful opportunity to showcase what
you can produce in your kitchen.
The Food Section in the Cooma Pavilion is
always a tantalising display of home baked
delights. Why not take some time this year to
enter a category or two and encourage your
children to do some baking or decorating as
well. Get your entries and submit them for
judging at the Cooma Show.
This year our food judges have generously
offered to allow members of the public to
be present during the judging so that they
can listen to how the entries are critiqued
and provide insight into what is required
to be successful at show competitions.
Please understand that space is limited so
depending on how many people are present
will determine how spectators will be placed.
Judging will commence at 10am and run
through to about 3pm on Friday March 8.
The zone judging of the rich fruit cake
section also takes place in Cooma each
year to determine which fruit cake will be
representing the South East region of NSW
at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
Please remember that exhibits must be
on disposable bases and in plastic bags,
no cling wrap is to be used. For more
information about the rules of competition
please refer to either the Show Schedule or
take a look online at www.coomashow.com.
Exhibitors are asked to bring entries to
the Pavilion between 5:30pm and 8pm on
Thursday 7 or from 8am to 9am on Friday
March 8. Exhibits along with any certificates
and ribbons can be collected from 5pm on
Saturday March 12. Happy Baking!
The condiment section at the Cooma Show
this year is welcoming entries once again
with many categories in jams, jellies, pickles,
preserves, sauces, relishes and chutneys.
“We don’t normally have many entries in
the junior section so it would be really nice
to see some younger exhibitors this year,”
Condiment Steward, Margaret Barron, said.
There is even a microwave jam section for
busy entrants with limited time.
It is preferred that entries are in clean
375g jars with lids and are not
overfilled with approximately
1cm left from the top. Window
cleaner helps achieve a shiny
clean surface on jars. Jams
must be set – not runny – and
of course, not overcooked
with an unbroken surface. To
achieve a flat surface, bubbles
should be skimmed off while
the condiment is still warm as
presentation is the second most
important factor after taste.
There will be open judging
this year as opposed to
previous years where it was
closed and exhibitors will be
able to observe and ask the
judges questions regarding their
decisions. This may help people
with their exhibits for next year as they are
able to find out what the judges are looking
for and make these adjustments in future
Exhibits must be delivered in the afternoon
on Thursday March 7 or by 9:30am on
Friday March 8.
The flower section in the show this year is
looking forward to seeing what exhibitors
have grown in their gardens. Entries for this
section must be brought to the pavilion from
6:30pm-9pm on Thursday March 7 or Friday
morning March 8 before 9:30am.
The main tip is to read the schedule as this
provides all the information regarding cuts,
stems, containers and other particulars that
the judges require. It is advised that displays
are not to be jammed into containers, rather
neatly for all to admire.
Containers must suit exhibits, such as a
beer bottle for dahlias or roses and a saucer
or basin for pansies or petunias. Stems must
be decent and able to stand up and ‘look at
you’. Any display under or over the required
blooms will be disqualified. It should be
noted that a bud counts as a bloom.
There are sections for juniors 5 years and
under, 6-11 years and 11-16 years so age is
no excuse for not entering.
