Afternoon Tea At Bramble Cafe
by Mat Follas (Ryland, Peters & Small, £16.99)
Mat Follas at the Great Sausage Roll Off. He said, "I'm gutted not to have gotten into the top three but it's always a fantastic evening of fun for all the chefs."
Since 2013, the Red Lion in Barnes has 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!
Hosted by Melissa Cole, this year's Sausage Roll Off took place on Wednesday 24th January 2018.
