World Buttery Championship this weekend
The 16th of June is a big day for Rowie fans. North East Scotland College will be hosting the World Buttery Championship at their Aberdeen City Campus.
For anyone unfamiliar with butteries, or rowies, they are a crisp flakey bread roll made with lots of butter. They don’t rise much, but boy do they taste good.
Their origins go back to providing fishermen with high fat high energy eating, but over the years they have gained their place as a breakfast favourite in Aberdeen and the North East.
The finalists in this inaugural year are:
Their tasty treats will be judged by:
Martin Gillespie – Slow Food Aberdeen City & Shire
Peter Baxter – NESCOL Aberdeen
Fee Stott – Facebook
Eileen Brown – WI
We will of course bring you the winners. But meanwhile, I’m off to share a buttery with Fred 🐾
