Scotch Egg Challenge 2013

Ok so we have been chosen out of hundreds of entries to be in the final 25 of the Scotch egg challenge 2013 at The Ship in Wandsworth a" Mighty fine pub" owned by Young's and run under the watchful eye of Oisin Rogers.

You might well be wondering, well its only a scotch egg, trust me when I say the scotch egg business in a lot of pubs nowadays is a serous business. Gone are the days of the over fried, hard crumbed, brown around the outer white of the egg and hard boiled within an inch of it's life, left under a plastic dome at the end of the bar for days on end, nowadays it is an art and is a highly sort after bar snack. It's there to be enjoyed with your pint of beer or a glass of your favourite wine.

If you consider that in this final 25, there are some serious contenders for this sought after title. You have the likes of The kitchen Table owned by James Knappet highly regarded as one of the best places to eat in london right now, Duck and Waffle very rarely out the news.
Along with a very impressive list of pubs and restaurants dotted around london and a couple outside of the capital.

The British Larder
Bumpkin Restaurants
The Canbury Arms
The Dairy, Clapham
The Drapers Arms, Islington
Fino & Barrafina
Fish Market
Gauthier Soho
The George Inn, Chideock
The Grove, Balham
The Henry Root
Marquis of Westminster
The New Inn, Baschurch
Peyton & Byrne
Princess Victoria, Uxbridge
Rivington Grill
Thatched House, Hammersmith
The Queen Adelaide
The Victoria, East Sheen
Whyte & Brown.

Tickets for the main area sold out very quickly, so its also a very popular once a year event with Scotch egg fans.

The other reason for taking part is and without doubt an organisation that does some terrific work world wide is it's raising money for Each competitor has to donate 12 eggs for a 60 hour auction. I will post more details as I know them.

So what ever happens on the night wether we have egg on our face because our egg didn't quite cut the mustard or return to Devon triumphant we hope to have raised a few quid for a very worthwhile charity.

From now until the end of september for every egg we sell we shall donate 50p to the charity.

We would also like to wish every competitor the best of luck and a big thanks in advance to all The Team at The Ship for organising a great event.
