SHORTBREAD SHOWDOWN/GENERATION THROWDOWN RESULTS!

 

  

MEDIA RELEASE

December 8, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TRADITIONAL TRUMPS THE SPICE

The inaugural “Shortbread Showdown” at Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery held December 5th and 6th , 2015 saw the daring deed of pitting Grandma against Grandma.  In this “Generational Throwdown” shortbreads from each of Sue-Ann’s Grandmothers were tasted with discerning customers, neighbours, family and bloggers. 

Of course, in any family debate, there can be no winners.  However, a slim majority (60% of the votes) favoured the “Traditional Blue” recipe of Lu Staff, Sue-Ann’s paternal grandmother.  The award?  Bragging rights only. 

Obviously, admires of Edith Burrows’ (Sue-Ann’s maternal grandmother) Savoury Cocktail Shortbread are devastated in their defeat.  Their originality in flavour, ingredients and texture cannot be discounted. 

Voting may have been rigged due to the popularity of the 2014 Riesling Loved By Lu.  Brix was not present for the vote count hence the results are not “Brix Approved”.  In point of fact, Brix is immensely dismayed that he wasn’t even given a sample of either shortbreads nor wine pairings. 

Mark December 3 & 4, 2016 for an expanded “Shortbread Showdown” at Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery.  The winery hopes to include entries from local bakeries, shortbread aficionados and local home bakers.

Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery, also home of the “Fancy Farm Girl”, is a premium winery in Jordan, ON, Canada on the brow of the Niagara Escarpment.  It is the ultimate assemblage blending over 100 years of family grape growing experience with Sue-Ann’s international winemaking acclaim.  Clay soil with limestone rock beneath provides wine with intensity, minerality and longevity.  The onsite retail store is open daily on the 200 year old family estate.
