2023 Winners Announced!
A brioche loaf has been crowned Britain’s Best Loaf 2023
Made by Kuma-San Bakehouse from Matlock in Derbyshire, the Brioche Japonais fought off stiff competition from more than 150 loaves across seven categories – Flavoured Sourdough, Gluten Free, Innovation, International, Plain Sourdough, White, and Wholegrain.
The loaf, which took the top spot in the Innovation category, was praised by the judges for its outstanding use of ingredients, wonderful texture, and decadent white chocolate inclusions, which the judges said remained almost gooey to deliver a wonderful eating experience.
It was crowned at the Britain’s Best Loaf competition, which took place at the UK Food & Drink Shows on Tuesday 25 April. The competition was sponsored by ADM Milling, Bako, Brook Food & Bakery Equipment, and Lesaffre UK.
