The winners of Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food have been announced at St John’s Church, Hyde Park on Tuesday, the 16th of October 2018. Hosted by Stephen Hallam, Master Baker, Managing Director of Dickinson & Morris and Chair of the Judges, the awards ceremony declared Istvan Nadhazi of M’s Bakery, Bournemouth as Winner of the Real Bread Campaign supported by Shipton Mill category– and Overall Winner of the Awards.
Istvan was presented with £1,000, a Tiptree hamper and trophy.
“The field was more competitive than ever,” said Hallam, whose fellow judges, all 90 of them, included legendary baker Richard Bertinet, Dr John Foster of BBC’s Victorian Bakers and Harry Lomas, Executive Head Chef, Wembley Stadium.
Istvan 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,” said Caroline Kenyon, Director of the Awards.
