The Scotch Egg Challenge 2011

It’s an open invite to all who accept the challenge; pubs/ restaurants/ professionals alike…

Who makes the best Scotch Egg?

Following recent pitter-patter on Twitter, an event has snowballed into existence, hosted by us the Ship, Wandsworth on Tuesday 20th September from 7.30pm.

All entries must be confirmed before Thursday 15th September and all confirmed will be posted below, so we (and you) can keep track.

Entrants must submit 1 egg, although a batch of 10 or more of this egg will be required on the night, (this egg must be the one used by competitors on a current menu).

Condiments will be supplied although not included in the judging.

The egg will be judged on smell, taste, texture and appearance, and each will be marked out of five giving a total out of twenty.

We’re delighted to have a top notch panel of judges including Scotch Eggspert David Constable @davidjconstable, MiMi Aye of Meemalee’s Kitchen @Meemalee, MasterChef Winner 2009 and Chef Patron of the Wild Garlic, Mat Follas @MatKiwi and one of London’s finest food bloggers Chris Pople @ChrisPople, as well as a celebrity panellist… to be disclosed on the night.

Spectators/ tasters, there is no personal invite, all are welcome. If on twitter, spread the word using #ScotchEggChallenge, why not nominate your favourite pub, and drop us a tweet at @ShipWandsworth, it’s going to be a fab night.

Any questions or for further information- please just comment on this blog or contact @EmmaLDickinson.
