World Garlic Eating Competition

30 Jan 2013

I like garlic and eat a lot of it. Unlike many people I even like raw garlic and the tang it adds to a salad or sandwich. But I'm not sure I'd want to eat a whole raw clove. I certainly couldn't eat ten in five minutes.

That's the amazing - and slightly scary - target for entrants to the first World Garlic Eating Competition which will be held in England this year.

The event is being organised by the South West Garlic Farm in South West Dorset and will take place on 14th September 2013 at the George Inn, Chideocock. Contestants will be presented with a bowl containing ten peeled cloves and will try to eat as many as posible in five minutes. The winner will receive a trophy and a prize of £100.

If you're going to be in the area this summer and think that your stomach can handle the onslaught then you can enter via the competition website.

Please read the site terms of use.
