It got a little hectic today at the Whole Grain Store during our Bon Voyage party for the Golden Spurtle team. Oats were flying, pears were sizzling and sugar was dripping down the sides of mini-ramekins. We welcomed over a dozen special guests and media representatives to join us for Oregon Orchard Oat Brulee (whew! what a long name!!). Milwaukie, Oregon Mayor, Jeremy Ferguson presented Matt Cox with a City of Milwaukie flag and Jeremy’s very own lapel pin- right off of his jacket- to properly represent Milwaukie in Scotland. Thanks, Jeremy!
With only 11 days until our competition, practice sessions have been heating up with only a few minor burns (that sugar gets HOT when it melts!). We’re practicing every day to be sure we represent Bob’s Red Mill, Oregon and the United States with the finest batch of oatmeal we can muster.
Now for the last pre-competition give away!
To enter to win a beautiful myrtle-wood spurtle and package of Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats- simply guess how many competitors will be strutting their stuff before the Golden Spurtle judges. Closest to correct will win the prize! Just post your guess in the comments section below. If we get too many correct submissions- we’ll randomly select from those who nailed it.
