Search is on for World Porridge Champion
Entries are now open for the 2016 World Porridge Making Championships, which take place in the highland village of Carrbridge, Scotland on Saturday 8 October.
The contest, which is now in its 23rd year, attracts entries from all over the world, with professional and amateur chefs, food producers, food bloggers, small business owners and home cooks with a passion for porridge, all vying for the coveted title and Golden Spurtle trophy.
The title of World Porridge Making Champion is awarded to the contestant deemed to have made the best traditional porridge using just three ingredients - oatmeal, water and salt. The current champion is Simon Rookyard, an astrophysicist from Greater Manchester.
There is also a speciality category for oatmeal combined with any other ingredients. The current speciality winner is Norwegian Thorbjorn Kristensen who impressed last year’s judges with his porridge waffles.
Deadline is 20 June. Full details of how to enter are available at goldenspurtle.com
