Some of London’s leading chefs take to the kitchens with the aim of elevating the humble bar snack to new heights in a cook-off and blind tasting to find the nation’s best Scotch Egg. Having previously taken place at The Ship in Wandsworth, the Scotch Egg Challenge moves to The Canonbury Tavern in Islington for 2015. A must-see (and taste) event for any posh foodie fan, the competition sees entrants judged on three categories – taste, texture and appearance – and there’s enough scotch eggs for the audience to feed their faces for free. Previous finalists have included the Harwood ArmsDuck and WaffleThe Modern Pantry and Cinnamon Soho, with outlandish combinations including chorizo and fennel, curries smoked haddock and wild boar, heart and liver, black pudding and also vegetarian. With a big screen showing all the action live from the kitchen, this is a truly egg-cellent event.
