British Larder crowned Scotch egg champions

The British Larder has been crowned winners of the Scotch Egg Challenge, held at the Ship pub in Wandsworth, London.

Now in its third year, the competition pitted 23 restaurant and pub teams against each other in the Ship's kitchens, before a panel of food experts voted for the best following blind tastings.

The British Larder's smoked venison shoulder with Dingley Dell pork scotch egg triumphed, beating the Drapers Arms in Islington to second. The Canbury Arms in Kingston came third.

Other entrants included Gauthier Soho, Fino and Barrafina in London and caterers Peyton and Byrne.

This year the event raised cash for Action Against Hunger, with all entrants donating a dozen eggs to a 60-hour online auction, whether or not they made the final cut. All ticket sales also went to the charity.

The Ship's general manager Oisin Rogers said: "This year was a little quieter because we organised it a little better in terms of the ticketing. It turned out to be a fantastic industry night with a brilliant group of chefs, publicans and restaurateurs all helping raise funds for Action Against Hunger and having a great time."
