Two Chances to Win with Mornflakes


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.
