Recently, Coast radio station conducted a six week search to find the country’s best sausage roll. Hororata Village Bar & Café’s Butchers Beef Roll received hundreds of votes and after final judging, carried out by Masterchef winner Brett McGregor and Coast Radio morning host Brian Kelly, the beef roll was placed in the Top 5 in New Zealand. “The win’s exciting for our Butchers Pie Brand,” says Jason Kupe who with Jarnia, owns and operates Hororata Village Bar & Café. Professionally trained butcher turned pastry cook, Jason has perfected his skills, baking the Butchers Pie and Beef Roll on site at their Hororata café. Jason knew he had a beauty when he created the Butchers Beef Roll. This mighty big sausage roll along with their Butchers Pie, have been popular with customers since the couple took over the business, five years ago. “Our Butchers Beef Roll is made from quality ingredients and encased in flaky pastry. It has a touch of curry with cream cheese through the middle of the meat so it’s moist and really tasty,” says Jason. While the bar and café missed out on the title of best sausage roll, they are delighted in the great achievement of making the top five in New Zealand. “Our customers are our biggest judges,” adds Jason. “We’d like to say a big thank you to them for voting for us.” Jarnia and Jason’s Butchers Beef Roll was judged in the top five in New Zealand. Backyard critters No need to fear white-tails Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us A NOCTURNAL spider commonly seen stealthily lurking inside on the floor, wall or ceiling is the whitetailed spider. There are two species in New Zealand, one in the North Island (Lampona murina) and one in the South Island (Lampona cylindrata), but both originate from Australia where they are part of a complex of 57 species. The South Island species (L. cylindrata) is the larger of the two species ranging from 12-20mm in length and was first recorded in Nelson in 1913. FEARMONGERING: Studies from the New Zealand Medical Journal in 2004 found no adverse effects resulted from patients supposedly bitten by whitetailed spiders. ​ The spiders have grey bodies with two or four pale markings on abdomen as well as the distinctive creamy-white tail, giving the spider its name. The female has a larger oval abdomen, while the male’s abdomen is thinner. They hunt other spiders – in particular the grey house spider, another Australian species. White-tails go onto webs of other spiders where the feign a struggling insect and ambush the owner. Considerable media attention occurred in the 1990s following unsubstantiated reports of SELWYN TIMES necrotizing arachnidism from white-tailed spider bites and has fostered considerable public anxiety about these spiders. However, based on a New Zealand Medical Journal article in 2004, where the authors studied patients supposedly bitten by white-tailed spiders, no adverse effects resulted from the bites. In fact none of the patients actually reported they observed a whitetailed spider biting them. The authors concluded that “much of the fear that surrounds these spiders is unwarranted.” HOME OF THE BUTCHER’S PIE MADE ONSITE Voted Top 5 in New Zealand for our Butchers Sausage Roll!
