HOW good would you rate your por­ridge-mak­ing skills?

Ev­ery year, a com­pe­ti­tion is held in the Scot­tish High­lands vil­lage of Car­rbridge to find a por­ridge cham­pion!

Com­peti­tors from across the globe do bat­tle in the World Por­ridge Mak­ing Cham­pi­onships, with the win­ner be­ing awarded the Golden Spur­tle tro­phy.

All com­peti­tors have to do is cre­ate their very best por­ridge us­ing just three in­gre­di­ents – oat­meal, water and salt.

If they want to mix it up, there’s also a spe­cial­ity round for more un­usual con­coc­tions. Past win­ners in­clude sticky tof­fee por­ridge and fruity date por­ridge. Are your mouths wa­ter­ing yet?!

This year, to cel­e­brate Visit Scot­land’s Year of Young Peo­ple 2018, a ju­nior heat will be in­cluded, too.

Last year’s win­ner
