Tiptree World Bread Awards with Food is GREAT is coming to New York for the second year in a row to celebrate the very best American bread bakers
The Awards, now in their seventh year, are the top annual competition for professional bakers in the United Kingdom, and Caroline Kenyon, Founder/Director, was inspired to bring them to the US after coming to a family wedding in New York in the summer of 2016.
“On our first night, we went to a small neighbourhood restaurant in Park Slope where the waitress brought us some focaccia and olive oil. It was quite simply the best focaccia I have ever tasted! So the idea was planted, that we should bring the Awards to New York.”
The Awards will have 12 categories, from sourdough to baguette and bagel. The Judging Day will take place on Tuesday 29th October at Landmark on the Park, 160 Central Park West where a panel of some 40 judges will taste and debate their way through all the entries.
There will be a fabulous Awards evening on Wednesday 30th October also at Landmark on the Park for all the Finalists to mingle with VIPs of the press as well as the baking and foodie world.
The 2018 winner was Sarah Owens of Ritual Fine Foods in New York.
Headline sponsor is Tiptree, suppliers of jam to Her Majesty the Queen who have been fruit farming since 1757 and jam making since 1885. Supporting headline sponsor is Food is GREAT, the UK government campaign for the very best of British produce.
