John adds ash in the traditional style to achieve the bluish colour. Salvatore the much loved local butcher in Ballan is going to surprise us on the day. Perhaps a cotechino.

Or perhaps he will supply his loukanika. (Pronunciation: loo-KAH-nih-kah) This spicy Greek sausage is made with lamb, pork, and orange rind. Andrew the butcher at 5 Mile Creek in Clunes will be entering his pork and fennel sausages, a little fatty with a flavour that’s hard to beat. From a little further down the road, Rob from Tuki Trout farm produces a very tasty and juicy little lamb chipolata.
