Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food are back!

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

The Awards were launched in 2013 to celebrate the nation’s bread baking skills and have gone from strength to strength. New categories this year will include the Tiptree Patisserie Trainee Baker category, supported by the National Bakery School, Muntons Malt Bread category and the Irish Wheaten Loaf category, supported by Food NI. We are also delighted that this year Brook Food will sponsor our most popular category, Sourdough. Scotland Food & Drink also join our family of partners, as do Andrew Ingredients.

In 2016 the Awards attracted almost 600 entries to the Judging Day at Cathedral Hall, Westminster Cathedral, where boxes, bags and baskets containing a variety of delicious smelling loaves, all eager to please the palates of our 90 judges were delivered throughout the morning.

The stellar 2017 judging panel includes star of BBC2’s Victorian Bakers, Duncan Glendinning and John Foster, as well as contestants from the Great British Bake Off, and a host of baking 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.”

Tiptree, the famous fruit growers and preservers, have been headline sponsor since the Awards’ inception. Brook Food, the leading bakery equipment suppliers are supporting sponsor. KitchenAid continue to sponsor the Young category for our talented next generation.

Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food – open for entries from 1 February 2017 until 6 September 2017.
