A group of men dubbed the “Bowlo Blokes”, who meet each Friday at Kiama Bowling Club, have hit the kitchen ahead of the 2018 Kiama Show.

Barry Breasley, who threw down the challenge to the group to enter their culinary creations in the show, is taking important advice from his copy of The Commonsense Cookery Book.

Fellow “Bowlo Bloke”, Councillor Warren Steel, was not certain which section to enter.

“I want to decide once my cake comes out of the oven,” he said. 

“If it rises then a sponge, if not then a slice and if it all fails I’ll cut it up and enter it in the rustic lamington section.”

The Kiama Independent has it on good authority most of these blokes’ wives bake very well, so observers are hopeful they don’t employ cheating tactics.

Enter the Kiama Show

If it baking, making, spinning, weaving, building or floristry you like, then Kiama Show has it all.

It’s a good learning experience and you’re never too old to learn new tricks.

The schedule and entry forms are available online now, for a copy of the 2018 Kiama Show schedule and entry form click here.

Kiama Show will be held at Kiama Showground on January 26 – 27.
