Scotch Egg ChallengeSome of London's leading chefs take to the kitchens with the aim of elevating the humble bar snack to new heights in a cook-off and blind tasting to find the nation's best Scotch Egg. Having previously taken place at The Ship in Wandsworth, the Scotch Egg Challenge moves to The Canonbury Tavern in Islington for 2015. A must-see (and taste) event for any posh foodie fan, the competition sees entrants judged on three categories - taste, texture and appearance - and there's enough scotch eggs for the audience to feed their faces for free. Previous finalists have included the Harwood Arms, Duck and Waffle, The Modern Pantry and Cinnamon Soho, with outlandish combinations including chorizo and fennel, curries smoked haddock and wild boar, heart and liver, black pudding and also vegetarian. With a big screen showing all the action live from the kitchen, this is a truly egg-cellent event.

About The Canonbury Tavern

Having been a public house since the early 1700s, The Canonbury Tavern has a rich history, with George Orwell, who lived in Canonbury Square, writing part of 1984 while sitting under the tree in the garden in the 1940s. The Islington pub was demolished and rebuilt in 1846 and in the early 20th century the top floor was removed due to a fire and never replaced, meaning the intriguing staircase leads to nowhere.
