Cullen Hosts World Championship
Cullen will see the first ever Cullen Skink World Championship this year in July on the same weekend as the Cullen Summer Festival. Cooks from all over are being urged to enter this inaugural competition.
The Cullen Voluntary Tourist Initiative have organised the event - and are ambitious in their plans to achieve the same scale and prestige as the World Porridge Championship in Carrbridge. The championship title will be awarded to the competitor producing the best traditional Cullen Skink, made from fresh, local produce. Each entrant will be asked to submit a recipe and their method of cooking this special dish. From this, the judges will choose 6 finalists to take part in the cook-off which will take place on Sunday 22nd July 2012.
The rules of the competition and an entry form are available on www.discovercullen.com or on request to firstname.lastname@example.org. They are also available from the Cullen Paper Shop, the Cullen Tourist Office and the Cullen Bay Hotel.
