Week 34: Home cooked Bolognese competition – behind the scenes

When I started this Bolognese journey last September, I set out to find Melbourne’s best bolognese. I’ve been busy over the past 7 months eating spag bols all around town, and will continue to do so until this coming September.

I thought it would be unfair to not extend the invitation to home cooks too, so I put the call our for Melbournians to drop off a sample of their Bolognese for me to try. Yesterday I received 27 entries and today I spent the day blind tasting all of the sauces. It was a lot of fun!

With the help of family and friends, I successfully taste tested each sauce and was blown away by the standard. A BIG thank you to all who submitted their Bolognese!  Another big thanks goes to those who helped out today. A special thank you to Everten who have sponsored the prize going to the best bolognese – a Just Pizza Oven Pizza Maker. I can’t wait to reveal who the lucky winner is!

Meltzer Productions filmed the process and I’ll be posting the video once it’s edited, which will be in a few weeks. I’m not going to share the results from today with you just yet as all will be revealed in the video. I will however show you some behind the scenes photos. Enjoy and thanks again to submitters and helpers!
