A burger 'n' chips with a difference won the wildfoods/bushfoods competition final on Sunday. Its creators were Michael La Flamme and Pamela Kiel, who have been regular competitors since their "Gecko's Revenge" – a sausage made from feral cat – won people's choice in 2006.

At the moment, he said, that would be eucalyptus, acacia and smoke. KIERAN FINNANE tastes.
