The Great Sausage Roll Off (#rolloff)
Since 2013, we have been giving this much overlooked buffet item the attention it deserves with the creation of the almost, nearly, infamous, Great Sausage Roll Off. A bit like the X Factor meets Masterchef, it is an evening of crazy culinary pleasure, taken in the most seriously light hearted way.
It is a live cooking event where around 20 professional chefs take their turns to create, roll and bake their own take on the Sausage Roll. It’s no mean feat, the cooking goes on in heats and lasts up to four hours!
This year’s offering was held on 24th January and was once again compered by Beer & Food writer Melissa Cole. The returning sponsors were Rational UK & IO Shen Knives who were joined this year by Netherton Foundry, Mrs R’ganics, Chefs Works UK & Sipsmith Distillery.
We had a stunning line up of chefs from up & down the country, along with top judges ; Michelin Chef Philip Howard, Restaurateur Oliver Peyton, Master Patissier Eric Lanlard and presenter Kate Ovens.
2018 Winner John Grabecki
This Year’s returning winner was City Executive Chef John Grabecki who won it in 2015, second place went to last year’s champ Norfolk’s Charlie Hodson and bronze medal position was awarded to Roll Off newbie Leigh Evans from Wiltshire pub The Methuen Arms.
Thank you to all who bravely entered & thank you to all who took gave their time to make it possible not forgetting the full support and backing of our fabulous Fuller’s !
