I have been told there was someone doing campoven cooking at the Cairns caravan and camping show up here. I never went down to it  but would like to have gone down for a look.

You have no idea Derek Roll Eyes....hes a fussy bugger.
From memory ginger is no good either.

Yes you can add ginger to that list. Except ginger beer, that's pretty good.
But I  am not fussy when it comes to food! I just don't consider them things food.
Apricots Derek are delicious if you have ever had the good fortune of eating them straight off a tree, but from there on they go down hill. I detest dried apricots and jam should only ever be made from blackberry's, and as for marmalade it goes straight to the non food category  Smiley
A great mate of mine ran bus loads of foreign tourists from Sydney to Byron on a surfing safari for ten years, the trip took a week and everynight he cooked for them with a 20 inch Furphy and made tea with a Furphy fountain. He gave me the fountain, anyway I would go to his place and he would cook the meal he cooked for them each night which was pretty good except he used Tofu instead of meat and he loaded it up with that coriander stuff which to me tastes like a flower bed but he thought was gourmet.
Add Tofu to the non food category whilst we are at it  Grin
And as for goats yes it has had its place in keeping mankind supplied with protein for eons. But as a younger Kingbrown I once decided to help out a young lady who had goats at the show I was riding at by helping her lead them in the grand parade. Well she gave me this big old hairy thing to lead around and it was very naughty and spent the whole time trying to do to me what I was probably trying to do to her  Grin I never quiet got over the experience. Looking back I think she gave me that one on purpose   Wink. Anyway years passed and I sometimes shot and cooked up a bit of goat, but when I was working as a shooter I would sometimes take journalists for certain magazines and interested parties out to get trophy horns and it was me who always had to dress out the horns of the old bugger and sometimes dress out a younger one to cook for them. The smell of an old trophy horned buck never leaves you and takes a few days to wear off. I have never ate one since.  Smiley
I also wont eat snake, crocodile or shark but that's a karma thing  Smiley
But I am definitely not fussy SBB!

I think I might agree with you about the goats.  I recall a mate and myself traipsing around shooting the buggers when I was much younger looking for trophy heads.  The stink of an old rutting Buck goat is one of the most powerful pongs you could ever come across.

As such I have never been able to drink goats milk or eat goats cheese.  I have epicurean friends who keep telling me what a delight goats cheese is but I just cannot see it.

In Tassie we did the usual cheese tasting at small cheese factories and once again I did tempt fate and tried some goat feta and once again all I could taste was rutting old billy goat.   Grin

Thanks Aart, it was great to see you two in the grandstand. I did about 35 shows at an hour or more each over the 6 days with packed crowds at each one. Hard work but I loved every minute of it. I try to make it entertaining as well as informative as you saw  Wink Grin Grin
