Think you have what it takes to dish up the world's best bowl of oats? Rob's Red Mill Natural Foods, purveyors of "The World's Best Oatmeal" want to know. I am also curious.
Submit a video demonstrating a unique recipe (savory or sweet) that makes use of Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats. The top three finalist will be flown to Portland, OR to compete in a live cook-off. The winner of that cook-off will travel with the Bob's Red Mill team to compete in the 18th Annual Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championship in Scotland - an all-expense paid trip for two to Scotland, including $2,500 in cash. The deadline to submit your entry is August 7, 2011.
