COULD YOUR PORRIDGE DISH GET SIMON AND THE JUDGES IN A STIR?
I got an e-mail the other day with one of those cooking challenges I always MEAN to enter, but seldom get round to doing. This one, from Mornflakes is to come up with the ultimate Great British Porridge
THINK you know your oats? Well it’s time to hit the stove, as Simon Rimmer puts the Nation’s porridge culinary skills to the ultimate test, with the Mornflake Great British Porridge Challenge! The top TV chef and Britain’s oldest family oat miller, Mornflake Cereals, are urging porridge fans to share their oaty masterpieces, for a chance to take part in the first ever ‘Porridge Stir-Off’, at the home of Mornflake Oats, in Cheshire, on Saturday 5th April.The ‘Stir-Off’ will take place in the scenic, 13th Century Bunbury Water Mill, near Mornflake Cereals, where the winning recipe will be chosen by Simon, Porridge guru and Golden Spurtle winner, Anna Louise Batchelor (aka the Porridge Lady), together with Mornflake MD, John Lea.
The competition has a fabulous prize – the winner will enjoy a Gourmet Evening-for-two, hosted by Simon, at his award-winning Cheshire restaurant, Earle, a year’s worth of Mornflake Porridge Oats and an all-expenses-paid trip to enter their recipe into the Golden Spurtle World Porridge Championships, in Scotland. And, the recipe will also feature in Mornflake’s annual Oat Recipe Book – fame at last?.
Now, I’ve been told that this isn’t about complicated recipes – more about great flavour combinations! If you’d like to have a go, simply upload a video clip or picture of your oaty masterpiece, with full recipe details, to the Mornflakes dedicated web page or pop over to the Mornflake facebook page, where you can also find full competition Terms and Conditions.
