New ITV show searches for Britain’s Best Bakery
We are excited to announce that two of our star speakers at the Manchester Cake & Bake Show are the judging duo behind ITV’s Britain’s Best Bakery - due to air on ITV1 on Monday 26th November at 4pm.
The new exciting show will continue daily as the judges scour the nation in search of Britain’s Best Bakery!
More than a food competition this series is a celebration of local bakeries around the UK, the delicious goods they produce, their regional specialities and their centuries old baking heritage.
Expert judges Mich Turner MBE (TV chef, author and owner of Little Venice Cake Company) and Peter Sidwell (TV chef, cookery writer and restaurateur) will be sampling the delicacies of the country’s favourite independent, family run and community bakeries, tasting and critiquing their way through breads, cakes, pastries and pies.
The shortlisted bakeries compete in a series of baking challenges that put their skills to the test from organic artisan sour dough breads to the more obscure Bedfordshire clanger and the Lancashire courting cake, and include favourite bakes whose origins lie beyond the UK, such as baklava and bagels.
