Jimmy Barrett and I had a lot of fun yesterday judging food and enjoying the company of colleagues in the local radio... It's Jimmy's first rodeo and food judging contest so it was a lot of fun to go around and take a look at his reactions to all the fine food this year. Have a look at the winners...
