Tiptree World Bread Awards - 115% Increase On Entries
Bread Proves Itself a Winner
Bread entries for Tiptree World Bread Awards blast through last year's entry levels
As the last minutes of Sunday 31 August ticked away, the entries were still coming for the Tiptree World Bread Awards 2014, culminating in astonishing 115% increase on last year, the Awards' inaugural year.
“We are absolutely delighted,” says Kathleen Codd, Event Manager for the Awards. “12 million loaves are eaten in Britain every day and these Awards recognise the skill and experience that goes into that.”
There will hundreds of freshly-baked loaves from across the country to judge on the Judging Day on 17 September 2014 at Cathedral Hall, Westminster Cathedral, when dozens of judges converge to give their opinion. (Last year, bread was even flown up from Cornwall that morning, delivered by the bakers' mother in a suitcase.)
This year, the Judging Panel includes industry legends such as Chair of the Judges, Stephen Hallam, master baker and Managing Director of Dickinson & Morris, Andrew Whitley, Founder of The Real Bread Campaign, David Roberts, Federation of Bakers, as well Frances Quinn, winner of Great British Bake Off 2013 and Nigel Barden, food and drink broadcaster on BBC Radio 2.
