THE Capricorn Coast's popular Best Beef & Reef competition for 2013 is about to begin and restaurants across the Coast are being encouraged to get entries in early .

Organiser Jo Kurpershoek said the competition, which is in its second year since conception, would allow restaurants and cafes to promote their business by developing a dish that combined beef and seafood and present it to their diners for judging in for the month of April.

"This year, the competition will include a new twist, which is to create the dish using locally grown/caught/collected ingredients to showcase our local produce," Jo said.

"This competition celebrates local lifestyle, food and business on the Coast and takes advantage of the Easter holiday period each year.

"Last year's winner Rod Taylor from Byfield store said his winning dish became so popular with his clients, they continued to request it long after the competition was done and dusted.

Rod's tantalising dish was a plump eye fillet with prawn and scallop wantons, served with jicama salad and roasted garlic butter.

"It was a blend of culinary cultures and the popularity demonstrated clearly to me that diners across the Coast have an appreciation of culinary diversity," Rod said.

"We have many culinary talents on the Capricorn Coast, who have a passion for food, so this competition offers an opportunity to highlight our local talent, while allowing customers to experience fine cuisine without having to travel to the city.

"Rod said he would definitely be competing again this year and had already given consideration to his entry.

"I won't disclose my ideas just yet but let me just say I will be out fishing for mud crab," Rod teased.

The deadline for restaurants and cafes to register is February 22.
