Entries still open for Great Sausage Roll contest

There is still time for professional chefs to enter the third annual Great Sausage Roll competition, with the final set to take place at south London pub the Red Lion in Barnes on 28 January.

Professional chefs are invited to enter via the online entry form on the pub's website, in which they are asked to submit their sausage roll idea and give it a title.

Ten shortlisted chefs will then be invited to attend the finale, during which they will cook their roll in the pub's kitchen before serving each creation to the judges and members of the public.

This year's judging panel will include head chef and owner of Cheshire's Sticky Walnut restaurant Gary Usher; food critic Charles Campion; first winner of BBC's the Great British Bake Off, Edd Kimber; and Celebrity MasterChef 2014 runner up, Charley Boorman.

Beer sommelier and food writer Melissa Cole will host.

Last year's winner was Chris Brumby from Ben's Canteen, based in London's Battersea, who claimed first prize with his All Day Breakfast Sausage Roll with Bloody Mary Shot.

The Great Sausage Roll contest is but one of a similar set of competitions hosted around London, which also include the annual Scotch Egg Challenge, hosted at the Ship pub in Wandworth; and the Slider Decider contest, held at Docklands pub the Gun.

Both have previously attracted entries from high-profile chefs at establishments including Ember Yard, the Hinds Head, Duck & Waffle, Cinnamon Soho, Hixter, and Brindisa.

Managed by Claire Morgan and Angus McKean, the Red Lion is a Fuller's pub with a focus on traditional British food, including a regularly-changing menu and specials board.
