Rochester butcher Tim Cottam’s rissoles won first prize in the Australia Meat Industry Council North West competition.

Mr Cottam said he was ‘‘over the moon’’ when he learnt he had the best rissoles in the region.

He put the win down to using good-quality ingredients.

Cottam’s Family Butchers was up against 16 other butchers in a region stretching from Mildura and Horsham to Echuca.

The recipe was first invented by Gary Shaw who owned the butcher shop before Mr Cottam.

Mr Cottam said the competition gave small regional butcher shops recognition.

He hoped the win would boost his business.
