Hot off the press, the news from the Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championships is a BIG surprise! For the first time in its 25 year history the competition has two winners!
Calle Myrsell and Per Carlsson from Sweden have jointly won the Golden Spurtle traditional category. It is also a two-in-a-row for Sweden who swept the board last year winning both traditional and specialty categories.
The specialty trophy stays in the home nation in 2018 as Chris Young of Perthshire Oatcakes, Scotland, won the freestyle category of the competition with his ‘Oatmeal Tapas Platter’ recipe.
A big thanks goes to competition sponsors Hamlyns Oats for sending me this photo from the competition. You will be able to get the full news, photos and recipes from the Golden Spurtle website in the coming days.
