Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods recently announced its first Spar for the Spurtle Recipe Contest, which invites home cooks and professional chefs alike to submit videos demonstrating a unique recipe that makes use of Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats – the World’s Best Oats.
From the entries, three finalists will be flown to Portland, Ore. to compete in a live cook-off, in which the winner will receive an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Scotland, to represent Bob’s Red Mill in the 18th Annual Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championship, $2,500 in cash, and several other prizes. The deadline to submit a video is July 30, 2011.
Wowsa–a trip to Scotland AND $2,500 cash is my idea of a fantastic vacation – a dream vacation!! To help get you guys in the mood to whip out those video cameras, the folks at Bob’s Red Mill are offering up FIVE I Heart Kroger readers a nice little prize package that includes a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats, a wooden spurtle (traditional Scottish porridge stirrer) and a Bob’s Red Mill Cookbook!
To enter just head over and submit your video of an original recipe that makes use of Bob’s Red Mill’s Steel Cut Oats (sweet or savory recipe). The video needs to be short (less than 3 minutes). It does not have to be fancy, just show them what you can do with some of their great oats! The first five people to email me their YouTube code (or email me to let me know that they re-tweeted the video to me @i_heart_Kroger) will get a prize package!! Remember the deadline for the video is 7/30…so get busy!!
You guys should really give this a go–a few minutes in front of the camera could yield a FABULOUS prize! Video entry sweepstakes are usually very low entry sweeps…so you will likely have a VERY nice chance of winning!! So, c’mon–send me those videos!! Good luck guys!!
