Our Award Winners Have Been Announced!
Congratulations to all of our winners and highly commended!
A Parmesan & Black Pepper Sourdough Loaf from Bakerman in Darlington has been crowned Britain’s Best Loaf 2022. It fought off stiff competition from loaves across six categories – Gluten Free, Innovation, Plain Sourdough, Sourdough with Other Ingredients, White and Wholegrain – to secure the ultimate accolade.
“Well done to all the winning and highly commended loaves,” said British Baker editor Amy North. “We were thrilled with the quality and quantity of the loaves entered. It was fantastic to see the passion, skill and innovation from Britain’s bakers shining through. I’d also like to extend a huge thank you to the judges and sponsors who made the day possible.”
The competition culminated in an exciting live judging event and awards presentation at the Farm Shop & Deli Show, NEC Birmingham, on Monday 25th April 2022.
“It took a while for the news to sink in. But not it has, we are completely over the moon... We’re already planning for next year when it’ll be bigger and even more anticipated.”
