A cook-off drawing competitors from across the globe to compete making our favourite oaty dish!

27th Annual Golden Spurtle® World Porridge Making Championship®

Because of the current virus situation we have been forced to make some changes to the Golden Spurtle® Contest. Instead of our normal competition we have teamed up with our sponsors, HAMLYNS, to create an on-line SPECIALITY Contest.

For this year only we will have competitors send us a short video of them preparing their speciality recipe. It should be between 3 and 5 minutes long and should show the ingredients and the finished product. Other than that, the format is entirely up to you. Don’t worry if you’re not a seasoned film maker. Mobile phone footage will do just fine. Let your imagination run away with you!

The Porridge Committee will look at the entries and put the best of them on the web and Facebook on World Porridge Day (10th October). These contestants will be awarded the title of Virtual Spurtler 2020 and will receive a Hamlyns Perfect Porridge Pack.

See the 2020 section for more information.

Sadly, the SILVER SPURTLE® competition has been cancelled in its entirety for this year. Junior porridge makers over the age of 16 may enter the on line contest.Thanks to everyone for showing interest.
