Did you hear the one about the two journalists and the bowl of porridge? No, we’re not talking about a hilarious joke; we're talking about Foodism’s staff writer Jordan Kelly-Linden and travel editor Lydia Winter, who this October represented your (read: everyone's) favourite food magazine at the annual Rude Health Porridge Championships.
The premise was simple: each publication was sent a range of the brand's porridge oats and non-dairy milks, given a time period to create and submit a recipe, and then battled it out, MasterChef-style, at the Good Housekeeping Institute in central London.
Foodism's effort brought in the spirit of our newly launched beer club, cooking the oats in Wild Beer Co.'s Millionaire (a chocolate, salted caramel and milk stout) with a touch of milk and cream, and finished off with maple-candied pancetta, thyme and salted caramel pecans. 'A Millionaire’s Morning' came in a beery respectable third, behind Women's Health and Sainsbury's. Bring on 2019... Want to give it a go? Check out the recipe below.
