29th Annual Golden Spurtle® World Porridge Making Championship®


We are delighted to announce that the Annual Golden Spurtle® World Porridge Making Championship® will be back in person.  Mark your diaries for Saturday 8th October 2022.

Competitor entries will open Sunday 20th March 2022 (Spring Equinox) and close Tuesday 21st June (Summer Equinox).

As always thanks to Hamlyns for continuing support of this wonderful event and for their patience and suggestions.

We cannot wait to welcome you back to the village of Carrbridge.  Roll on October!

As was the case with many events, we were forced to adapt the Golden Spurtle® Porridge Making Contest in 2019 & 2021 and went virtual.  Many, many thanks to everyone who helped out and to everyone who was involved in producing and submitting the finished videos and to the contestants themselves for coming up with such interesting and unique recipes.  It was clear that nothing was going to stop our porridge lovers.


2021 Competitors were invited to send us a short video of the preparation of their speciality recipe.

The ‘Porridge Committee’ considered the entries and publish the best of them on our website and Social media platforms.

and the Winner was 

Miriam from the Netherlands. Miriam Groot is a Food Blogger specialising in Vegan food.

The Video entries can be seen on our Facebook Page and we look forward to welcoming old and new friends on the 8th October 2022 and (fingers crossed) the 29th World Porridge Making Championship® will be a fun-filled event in person next year, Be Safe and Be Well – Eat Porridge .
