|Battle of the Jam Butty
As part of the celebrations for the first ever JamJamboree, its sponsor Clippy’s is hosting a ‘Battle of the Jam Butty’ at Harvey Nichols Foodmarket in Manchester on Thursday June 25, 2009 from 10 till 11a.m.
A team of celebrity chefs including David Gale (Hilton Manchester Deansgate), Andrew Nutter (of Nutters) and Harvey Nichols’ Stuart Thomson will battle it out, to see who can make the longest jam sandwich in just two minutes. Clippy Mckenna will adjudicate the ‘Jam Butty Battle’. The jam butties will be made using loaves donated by Warburton’s and Clippy’s ‘Apple Pie Jam’.
Iain Mackenzie, General Manager at Harvey Nichols said: “Harvey Nichols has always been an ambassador for good quality British and regional produce and we are really excited to work with Clippy’s Apples as part of the first ever Jam Week. The ‘Jam Butty Battle’ is a fun and interactive way to celebrate the great British apple and jam sandwiches take me back to my own childhood with my grandmother’s homemade preserves dolloped on crusty bread. Sometimes, you just can’t beat a good jam butty!”
