This year there were 11 candidates, happily two of them were women and although neither of the women won it was great to see us women represented. Each contestant had 30 oysters to open in timed trials and of course we had the hard job of eating them.The winner of the competition goes on to compete in the next leg, the finals in Ireland.
There was plenty of Tabasco original sauce to sprinkle liberally onto your oysters – they don’t taste right without it.
My friend Val tasted her first ever oyster and she loved it!
I am a great fan of Tabasco which is weird because for years I had one solitary bottle in the fridge and didn’t often use it. Since I have been blogging and working with TabascoUK , I now add one of the four in the range to whatever I am cooking. I even have a tiny bottle to take with me on my travels! My favourite is the Smoked Chipotle which I get through at a really fast rate and in fact if I haven’t used any I say the food is very bland!
What food do you sprinkle Tabasco on? Leave me a blog comment below and let me know. Keep reading the blog to see what else I get up to with my bottle of Tabasco pepper sauce.
