Patties are being prepped and brioche baked – battle is about to commence for London’s tastiest tournament, The Slider Decider – and you can be front and centre for all the meaty mayhem.
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 are priced at £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, 17 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 Pizarro, 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; Food Writer, Restaurant Critic and Author 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.
