Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food
Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food winners announced
For the first time in three years, stars of the bread-baking world gathered together at St John’s Church, Hyde Park, London on Wednesday 26 October 2022 for the much-anticipated announcement of the winners of this year’s Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food, the UK’s leading celebration of the art of bread-baking.
Pain au Levain by Marta Nagy of M’s Bakery in Pokesdown, Bournemouth was declared the Supreme Champion by Stephen Hallam, Chair of the Judges. Marta was presented with a cheque for £1000, a Tiptree hamper, KitchenAid equipment and trophy by Scott Goodfellow, Joint Managing Director of Tiptree.
Pain au Levain, which is the bakery’s signature white sourdough, made simply with flour, water and salt, had first won the Brook Food Plain Authentic Sourdough category. M’s Bakery also took home the People’s Choice Award, which is voted for by the public for their favourite baker or bakery.
It was such a joy to hold the Awards in the real world again.
