We are bursting with pride (instead of seeds & grains for once!) – it was recently announced that not one, not two but three of our loaves have been awarded gold and silver at the Tiptree World Bread Awards 2014! The awards were created to ‘celebrate the art and diversity of bread baking and encourage and foster the skills of both current and future generations’ (Amen to that!). Fifty-five high profile judges ranging from master bakers such as Great British Bake Off 2013 winner Frances Quinn to food critics like Charles Campion from Masterchef scored the breads across six categories ranging from appearance to taste & flavour. The bread was marked on its own merit and given an absolute score. The bread that achieved certain scores then either attained a Gold, Silver or Bronze Award.
Our breads were in the wholegrain category and we are chuffed to bits that Sunflower & Barley won gold, along side Wholemeal & Oat and Original Mixed Grain which both won silver – we’re off to make a sarnie and do a little celebratory dance.
