The Great Goring Pudding Competition
Win a Weekend at The Goring
***This competition is now closed***
Creamy, Steamy, Fruity, Hot, Tart. These are words that excite us all.
You will therefore be delighted to hear that they are on our lips because, after a ten-year absence, the Great Goring Pudding Contest is back.
Our panel of celebrated judges are on standby to take recipe entries from you, our beloved guests. They will cook off the top three recipes, prod them a bit and decide upon the winner. We are sure that you will all have been practising your puds during the hiatus, so the standard will be high!
The Prize: A Weekend at The Goring with Afternoon Tea
The creator of our favourite pudding will be invited to spend two nights at The Goring with a guest including breakfast each morning and our Champagne Afternoon Tea.
The Theme: Restaurants I Miss
To enter simply share your recipe for a dessert inspired by your favourite restaurant (extra points if it's one from The Goring!), along with a photo of it made by your fair hand in your kitchen.
Entries need to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 June 2020. In addition to your recipe and the photograph of your dish, please include details of the restaurant and dish which inspired you, your name, address and telephone number.
