Sporting stars Lisa Carrington and Sarah Walker will put their taste buds to the test in the 2014 Beef + Lamb New Zealand Golden Lamb Awards, aka the Glammies.
The two Beef + Lamb New Zealand Iron Maidens will form part of the judging panel at the Upper Clutha A&P Show in Wanaka on March 7. The competition is returning for its eighth year and aims to find the most tasty and tender lamb farmers and retailers have to offer.
\Walker has helped choose the grand champion for the past two years. "It's an honour to be asked to assist again in this year's Glammies, as it recognises the hard work and dedication of farmers nationwide. I can always expect to be tasting delicious lamb," Walker said.
Carrington was equally looking forward to the awards.
"New Zealand is renowned for its quality of lamb, so being able to taste and select the best of the best alongside Sarah and the other judges is really exciting," she said.
Selecting the prize-winner was no easy task as the Iron Maidens would be required to judge the best 20 entries, which excelled in the initial scientific assessment of yield, tenderness, succulence and colour at Carne Technologies.
