The Truth About Aussie Chooks

chickenA reader living abroad asked where he could find the best chicken in Australia. I explained that the best chicken in the land of Oz comes from the Barossa Valley in the state of South Australia. The region is also renowned for producing some great wines such as the coveted Penfolds  Grange Hermitage, Grant Burge Wines and a recent favourite drop at the Gourmantic table, the Nepenthe Charleston Pinot Noir.

Barossa chickens don’t quite compete with what is considered the premium chicken in the world, the poulet de Bresse but it is quality produce nonetheless and I have had the pleasure of enjoying both. While the French bird with its own Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée wears the tricolore seal on its neck, our local equivalent is rather modest.

Any visitor travelling around our island continent can indulge their culinary senses, sample the range of Aussie chooks and keep track of the many splendours of the country’s overindulgence in such tasty morsels. A hot topic of late has centred around myths and truths about what constitutes a chicken’s diet. With artificial hormones pumped into these birds faster than you can say Cooee, a new species has evolved in humans termed Gen D.

Generation D consists largely of young females, sporting a plump cleavage often spilling out of their tight clothing. They display their bouncing assets with pride providing the ordinary male with abundant opportunities to make storms in a D-cup.

A mutant variant of Generation D can be spotted in the male species. They live in utter denial, totally oblivious to their ever growing man boobs, which some display with pride and honour at the country’s many iconic beaches.

Keep an eye out for these local varieties at a beach near you.

Happy Australia Day!
