Scotch Egg ChallengeSome of London's leading chefs take to the kitchens with the aim elevating the humble bar snack to new heights in a cook-off and blind tasting to find the nation's best Scotch Egg. Returning to The Ship pub in Wandsworth for a third year, the Scotch Egg Challenge is a must-see (and taste) event for any posh foodie fan - with the competitors cooking enough eggs for the audience to feed their faces for free. Last year's event saw 24 finalists (including the Harwood Arms, Duck and Waffle, The Modern Pantry and Cinnamon Soho) being judged on three categories - taste, texture and appearance. There were outlandish combinations on offer such as chorizo with fennel, curried smoked haddock and wild boar, heart and liver, black pudding and also - gasp - vegetarian. But the gold medal went to the Bladebone Inn in Berkshire for a genre-bending "ham, egg and chips" offering made with duck egg, truffles, and a potato 'n' Parma ham breadcrumb coating. With a big screen showing all the action live from the kitchen, plus Fortnum & Mason on board to provide chutneys, join the judging panel and give a demonstration on how to make their original 1738-style Scotch egg, this is a truly egg-cellent event.

 

About The Ship

Nestled on the edge of the Thames a stone's throw from Wandsworth Bridge and (strategically) just around the corner from Young's brewery, The Ship is often top of people's outdoor drinking lists in south west London. With its large decking for up to 400 punters, Pimm's available on tap from one of the outside bars, a humongous barbeque on which sausages are a mere hors d'oeuvre and the prospect of live jazz on Saturday afternoons, The Ship makes up for its slightly salubrious surroundings by ticking all other boxes available.
