Total 18/20
Accompaniments: 5/5
Presentation: 5/5
Flavour: 5/5
Wellington ingredients: 3/5

Gusto was always going to be a front runner in this competition and so it proved with its tasty Wellington Burger.

Made with slow cooked Harrington's eco pork, the dish was quite simply delicious.
The accompaniments included Kingsmeade Opaki Manchego cheese, a Bordeaux Bakery sesame bun and guafrette chippies.

I have to admit to not having a clue what guafrette means, but the chips were as tasty as the pork.
The other half is not a great hamburger eater, but the description was too much for her.

He verdict? "It looks too good to eat," she said before declaring it a taste sensation.

The star turn was undoubtedly the Canterbury free farmed pork. The grain fed pigs live life outside the pen and the result is beautifully moist and tasty meat that is perfect for slow cooking.

We combined our meal with a glass (two actually) of Hoegaarden. The complex flavours of the Belgium wheat beer complimented the meal perfectly.
