Slider Decider 2016

Saturday 10th September

SD banner no date

From midday on Saturday 10th September, some of the UK’s most talented and creative chefs will gather at foodie-hub Broadgate Circle to showcase their slider skills and discover who deserves the ultimate title of Slider Decider Champion 2016.

Celebrate all things “Slider” as the chefs rotate on a number of slider stations around the circle selling their unique creations hot off the grills, throughout the day. Guests attending will be able to purchase books of five slider tokens for £15 (all sliders priced at just £3 each), then once the winner has been crowned, continue the festival spirit and grab a drink from one of the outside bars whilst live music plays into the night.

From the huge number of entrants that fought to make the shortlist, 16 have been selected including last year’s returning champ Adam Rawson, formerly Pachamama, who is hoping to hold onto his crown with his “Global Traveller” – aged Basque beef patty, truffle aioli, wild rocket, balsamic onions, pancetta and gorgonzola. Other innovative and downright delicious creations will be available to try from Ben Waugh (Maze Grill), Jacques Fourie (Ember Yard), José Pizzaro, 2014’s Slider Decider winner Tim Anderson and The Botanist Broadgate Circle’s Jay Pullum.

Hosted by journalist and food writer Joe Warwick, all finalists will fight it out in front of food fans from across the capital and a stellar line-up of judges: Alexi Duggins, Editor at Large of Time Out; Jamie Klingler, Founder of National Burger Day and Publishing Manager of Shortlist’s Mr Hyde; Metro restaurant critic Andy Lynes and Mike Gibson, Associate Editor of Foodism.
Not only this, all guests attending will become judges themselves. Everyone will receive three ‘Champion Slider’ stickers to assign to their favourite sliders throughout the event. The chef with the most by 4pm will be crowned the ‘People’s Choice Winner’. The Botanist Broadgate Circle’s new outside bar and Long Arm Brewing Co. will be offering a selection of chilled drinks throughout the event.

Take your Saturday afternoon, sandwich it between two brioche buns, and take a big bite – it doesn’t get tastier than this.

British Beef Week- Whole-y White Park Cow

 

White Park cattle originate from the wild forest cattle that once roamed the forests of Europe and they have been in Britain for well over 2,000 years. When the Normans arrived in the 11th Century, they created enclosed parks for the native wild white

cattle, which they hunted for their prized meat. The oldest herd in Britain today has been em-parked in Northumberland since the 13th century.

It was a loin of White Park beef that King James I knighted “Sir Loin”. During the Second World War, White Park cattle were so rare that Winston Churchill, under the threat of German invasion in 1940, sent three cows and a bull to the USA to ensure the survival of the breed. In 1973 the White park breed was were so rare, with only 58 animals remaining in Britain, that it became the emblem of the newly formed Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

White Park are still a rare breed, with less than 700 White Park cows registered. Our supplier, Mark Leatham has dedicated the last eight years to rearing the breed at Lyons Hill Farm near Dorchester. He is committed to increasing the numbers of this beautiful breed through selective breeding and developing a market for its excellent meat, with the aim of one day removing the breed from its current classification as a “Rare Breed”.

Uncompromising in his efforts to achieve the best flavour in beef, the cattle are grazed on pastures of mixed grasses and they are given plenty of time, well over three years, for their full flavour to mature naturally. Through this approach he has slowly built up his herd and carved a market in the industry, with White Park beef now appearing on the menus of some of the most noted restaurants in London.

 

In the words of Mark, “once you’ve eaten it, you won’t be shy of coming back for a second helping”!
