– Tiptree World Bread Awards 2016 –
The Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food return for the fourth year to celebrate and reward the skill of bread making.
Open to both professionals – artisan bread makers, small high street bakers – and amateurs, there are fifteen categories including the KitchenAid Young Baker Award which is broken down into two age sections: Under 12s and 12 – 17 year-olds.
An expert panel including Great British Bake Off stars Luis Troyano, Frances Quinn, Kimberley Wilson and Martha Collison, also Andrew Whitley, founder of the Real Bread Campaign and Mike Holling, former CEO of the Craft Bakers’ Association will apply their strict criteria to over 500 sweet and savoury loaf entries. One further category is chosen by the public, The People’s Choice, allows bread fans from across the country to vote for their favourite bakery.
Entries must be registered by 4 September 2016 in time for the Judging Day on Wednesday 21 September at Westminster Cathedral. Winners will be announced at a harvest-themed reception in central London in October.
The overall winner receives a cheque for £1000, an iconic KitchenAid Artisan 6.9L Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer, an Artisan Two-Slot Toaster and an Artisan Kettle (RRP £1200). The winners of the two KitchenAid Young Baker categories each receive a KitchenAid Artisan 4.8L Stand Mixer in Empire Red (RRP £429).
Awards Director, Caroline Kenyon comments, “In just four years, the Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food have already established themselves as the most prestigious in their field. We couldn’t have achieved this without the help of our amazing judging panel and generous sponsors.”
