Spar for the Spurtle: Game on!

by Cassidy Stockton in Featured Articles, Golden Spurtle

It’s hard to believe, but this coming Friday is the day our Spar for the Spurtle finalists will throw down to see who will represent Bob’s Red Mill in the 2011 Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championships.

If you’re around, come on out and join the fun. Here are the stats:

  • Where: Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Store
    • 5000 SE International Way, Milwaukie, OR 97222
  • When: Friday August 26th, 2011 at 2:00 pm, though we recommend showing up a bit early to get a good spot to watch.
  • What to expect: we’ll have bagpipers making it merry and our finalists will recreate their dishes for our three celebrity judges. The finalists will have to follow the same rules as those in the Golden Spurtle. They’ll have 30 minutes and two butane burners to create their dishes. Our judges will pick the grand prize winner before 3 pm.

Our finalists:

Merry Graham with Black Bean Porridge Patties

Jim Schafer with Nutty Coconut Oatmeal

Rachel Kimbrow with Gingerbread Oatmeal (note: sometimes the sound on this video doesn’t work properly- we’re not sure why, but if it doesn’t work, try refreshing your screen.)

Our celebrity judges:

Leather Storrs – Chef, Noble Rot (and winner on Food Network’s Extreme Chefs)

Kim Sunee – Food & Wine Editor, Organic Gardening (plus former judge on Iron Chef America & author of Trail of Crumbs)

Rachel MacRitchie — Scottish native, wife of the honorary British Consul in Oregon & member (and honorary president) of Daughters of the British Empire in Oregon

Come on out and join the fun! RSVP for kicks on our Facebook event.
