Australia brings back the favored lamb chop for the third year in a row, pairing it this time with a potato-goat cheese salad, which is quite good! A fun flavor and great texture. Again, the lamb deserves all of the accolades it’s getting.
A surprise winner for me at the festival this year was the Shrimp on the Barbie with Pepper Berry Citrus Glaze. The shrimp were very well-cooked and I really enjoyed the (more spicy than I expected) glaze!! Great flavor on these.
And, again, the Lamington is a fantastic dessert. Offering three different textures and flavors — moist sponge cake, rich chocolate ganache, and coconut — it’s like eating a yummy, cakey Mounds bar!

Over in Canada this year, some fan favorites return and there are some new things to sample.
The quintessential Moosehead Beer and Cheddar Cheese Soup is back again, delighting all!
And the salmon has switched a bit this year, now being served as a Maple and Moosehead-beer Glazed Salmon with Barley Salad. Our thoughts? We liked last year’s better, but this version is fine as well. I like the Barley salad this year better than last year’s Lentil version.
The Apple Ice wine seen in the photo below next to the salmon is the bubbly version, though you can get it sans effervescence as well. I didn’t love this as much as I wanted to; the bubbly made it bitter (in the way bubbly water can be bitter). I bet I would have liked the “still” version of the drink much better.
Once again, the Chicken Chipotle Sausage with Sweet Corn Polenta is a super-winner here. The sausage is very spicy again this year, and the sweet corn polenta is the perfect side dish. The polenta’s relaxed, sweet flavor softens the harsh spiciness of the chicken sausage. The perfect compliment.
We actually brought friends to the festival this year who returned again to this booth for more sausage!
