King’s Banquet 2011

Love fresh pineapple? We do too! In fact, we love it so much we scoured the nation for the best fresh pineapple recipes in the country. King of Fruit pineapples are picked fresh from the farm and delivered to stores around Australia every single week of the year, so whether you want something to warm your tummy in winter, tingle your tastebuds in Spring, or cool your forehead in summer, there’s a fresh pineapple recipe for you. Right through October and November 2011 we offered a $1,000 first prize to whoever could create the best fresh pineapple recipe, as voted by the people of Australia, and four $100 runner-up prizes for whoever created the best snack, main, dessert and drink using King of Fruit pineapples.

Congratulations to the talented winners!

First prize went to Vero, for her delicious pineapple tart with coconut ice cream. Vero also won the drinks category with her pineapple colada.

The main course prize went to Sarah Lewis with her fantastic soy-poached chicken with pineapple. The best dessert, as voted by you, was Linda Lum's tropical sunrise tart and Sue Nixon's pineapple dip won the snacks category!

All the recipes are now available in our pineapple recipes archive so click on over and check them out.
