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.”

Tiptree World Bread Awards 2016

The Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food are open again – for their fourth year.

The Awards were launched in 2013 to celebrate the nation’s skill and have gone from strength to strength. Britain can now boast some of the finest bread baking in the world, from both traditional craft bakers and also the new artisan bakeries opening up almost weekly.

In 2015 the Awards attracted a stunning 540 entries to the Judging Day at Cathedral Hall, Westminster, where boxes of flatbread, focaccia, baguette and brioche were brought in a steady stream for the close inspection of the judges.

The stellar judging panel includes star of BBC2’s Victorian Bakers John Foster as well as Great British Bake Off names such as Luis Troyano, Frances Quinn and Kimberley Wilson along with a host of other industry legends.

“The Winners’ Harvest Supper at St John’s Hyde Park in October has fast become an important fixture in the bakers’ year,” says Caroline Kenyon, Director of the Awards. “It is a wonderful coming together of judges, Finalists and foodie press to pay tribute to a fantastic industry. After all, we buy 12 million loaves a day in the UK!”

Tiptree, the famous fruit growers and preservers, have been headline sponsor since the Awards’ inception. They were joined last year by Brook Food, the leading oven suppliers to the baking industry, as supporting sponsor. While KitchenAid is sponsor of the Young categories for the talented next generation.

Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food – open for entries from 1 February 2016 until 4 September 2016.
