the scotch egg challenge 2019

The Scotch Egg Challenge is back for 2019 and we are very egg-cited indeed. The Canonbury pub is once again playing host to the event with landlord of The Guinea Grill Oisin Rogers master of ceremonies for the night.

The first list of contestants has just been announced and it promises to be another cracking event (sorry). The full line up will be published at the end of March but so far we’ve got the likes of:

  • Meedu Saad, Smoking Goat (Winner, 2018)
  • Nick Gibson, The Drapers Arms 
  • Robin Gill, The Dairy
  • Calum Franklin, Holborn Dining Room 
  • Chris King, The Wigmore
  • Henry Harris, The Hero of Maida
  • Tomos Parry, Brat
  • Dan Smith, Fordwich Arms

The event is free to attend, but a limited number of VIP tickets are available for the seated judging area which include a free drink and guaranteed sampling of a selection of the competing eggs.

All income from the sale of these tickets is being donated to hospitality employment charity Only A Pavement Away. Tickets are £15 each and can be bought online here.
