A First for Dorset! Garlic Eating Contest!


3:20pm 4th February 2013

The World's FIRST Garlic Eating Competition will be held in Dorset later this year.

Taking place at the George Inn in Chideock, the person who eats the most pre-peeled garlic cloves in five minutes will win.

Organiser Mark Botwright, from South West Garlic Farm near Bridport, said he 'trialled' the event himself, "I managed to eat just seven cloves over the course of an afternoon- really pathetic".

All profits will go to Weldmar Hospicecare Trust and Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

The event will be held on the 14th of September, and organisers hope to attract 40 competitors from around the globe.
