The Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food – the Oscars of the bread world – are open for entries for the eighth year from Wednesday, February 5.
The Awards were launched in 2013 and are now an annual highlight of the British baker’s calendar, attracting hundreds of loaves to the judging day at Cathedral Hall, Westminster Cathedral.
The 2020 judging board deciding in September whose loaf merits a walk along the bread carpet includes Vivek Singh, executive Chef & CEO of The Cinnamon Collection, Jack Sturgess, Channel 4’s Sunday brunch bread expert, and Eric Treuille, owner of Books for Cooks, Notting Hill, London, the shop internationally renowned for its vast and diverse collection of cookery books.
“British bakers are currently at the top of their game. They work so hard, often 364 days a year, and our awards are a chance for them to receive the accolades they so richly deserve for what is a GBP3bn industry,” said Caroline Kenyon, director of the awards.
The top prize is GBP1,000 with a host of KitchenAid equipment along with national publicity, while category winners receive an exclusive invitation to the historic fruit farms at Tiptree in Essex.
The Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food are open for entries from February 5 until September 5.
