Stars of the bread-baking world gathered together at St John’s Church, Hyde Park, London on Tuesday 15 October 2019 for the much-anticipated announcement of the winners of Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food.
The awards ceremony was hosted by Stephen Hallam, Master Baker, Managing Director of Dickinson & Morris and Chair of the Judges who was delighted to declare White Bloomer made by Daniel Nemeth of Seasons Bakery, Ingleton, as Runner Up in Great British White. Multiseed Sourdough, also made by Daniel, was Runner Up in the Speciality Savoury category.
“The field was more competitive than ever,” says Hallam, whose fellow judges, all 100 of them, included Apollonia Poilâne of the legendary Paris bakery Poilâne, Dr John Foster of BBC’s Victorian Bakers and Harry Lomas MBE, Executive Head Chef, Wembley Stadium.
Daniel beat off competition from hundreds of loaves sent in from around the United Kingdom – delivered by courier, taxi and in person on the morning of the judging at Cathedral Hall, Westminster Cathedral, to ensure maximum freshness.
Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food, launched in January 2013, seek to celebrate the very best of British bread baking. “The choice, range and quality of bread in Britain today is immense,” says Caroline Kenyon, Director of the Awards.
