2008 Recipe Competition

2008 Tamarillo Lovers’ Recipe Competition

The NZ Tamarillo Growers Association is proud to announce the winner of the 2008 Tamarillo Lovers' Recipe competition.  Thank you very much to all the recipes entered, we appreciate the time and effort put into these and we look forward to more recipes in years to come.  Thank you!!

After much deliberation over the recipes, we came down to a short list, and we congratulate the following five entrants:

• Simonette Mallard – Tamarillo Cheesecake
• Diane Davidson – Rich Red Tamarillo Pork
• Johanna Cotter - Tamarillo Brulee
• Robyn Cotton – Tamarillo Muffins
• Heather Broadbent – Tamarillo Shortcake

All five of these fantastic recipes are now on the recipes page - please give them a go!


We could only have one overall winner, and that was Heather Broadbent’s Tamarillo Shortcake.  We especially liked how the tamarillo flavour really stood out in the cake, and as Heather comments in her recipe, it is delicious. 

Heather (pictured with her winning shortcake) is now planning her holiday weekend away for two.

Thanks again for all the entrants, and if you missed out this year, please watch out for next year when we plan to run the competition again.
