Chefs and Shorthorns – Together at Hahndorf

More than 30 Adelaide based chefs recently attended a Thousand Guineas brand day, held at The Carlton Club, Hahndorf, SA.

Hosted by Duncan Booth and the Holco Fine Foods team, JBS Australia and the Shorthorn breed, the day was focused on bringing some of Adelaides top chefs and the Shorthorn breed closer together, in a move to create further understanding of the quality and history of the breed behind the Thousand Guineas brand.

Held at John and Lyn Nitschke’s, Carlton Shorthorn Stud, chefs enjoyed an opportunity to get hands on with quality Shorthorn cattle, including the recently crowned 2017 Adelaide Royal Show Reserve Champion bull, Carlton Magic Mike. Shorthorn Beef President, Matt Ashby gave the attending chefs a brief explanation of the carcass quality traits that breeders are selecting for when they make their joining decisions, whilst Lyn Nitschke talked openly about her passion for the Shorthorn breed and in particular the JBS Australia Thousand Guineas Shorthorn brand.

Attending chefs sampled Thousand Guineas brisket burgers, short ribs and barbequed cube rolls prepared by the Adelaide Oval executive chef team, whilst the Holco team made sure there was plenty of Thousand Guineas product available for chefs to see.

Denis Conroy, JBS Australia said the day “was very successful. I certainly enjoyed the feedback from the chefs. I’m looking forward to more farm visits.”

A big thank you to John and Lyn Nitschke for the use of The Carlton Club and access to their quality Carlton Shorthorn herd.
