The M&DIAI hosts an Italian Sausage Sizzle Competition each year, usually in August. If you have a soft spot for Italian sausages accompanied by delicious slices and cakes you can’t miss this event. The cost is $10 per person at the door.
If you missed our last competition, here is a recap of what you missed... Five contestants, presented their special blends of herbs, spices and wine to make their 5kg of regional typical Italian sausages. Over 100 people attended the event and via their taste tests, voted on the best sausage of the day.
Although there was a clear winner, it was a tough decision with many people wanting to cast votes for more than one competitor because all of the sausages were of such a high standard. All of the competitors are winners in our books and we hope to see them back again next year!
Planning is already underway for the next Italian Sausage Sizzle in August 2024. The August 2024 Sausage Sizzle will again feature a people’s choice competition that sees different local Italian sausage recipes go against each other for the crown of best Italian sausage of the Mackay region.
