This year’s award has focussed on ‘real bread’ producers. By ‘real bread’ we mean bread that is made using traditional methods, containing no artificial additives.
Our judges have now tried and tested loaves from all of our contending bakeries, and after careful consideration, we are delighted to announce the results.
Overall winner: the Rex Bakery, Little Chalfont
South Chilterns winner: Burgers of Marlow
North Chilterns winner: Jo’s Loaves of Luton
The judging criteria were based on taste, texture, appearance, locally sourced ingredients, customer experience and, of course, the key requirement that the bread was baked without additives and using traditional methods.
Our winners were the bakers achieving the highest scores against these criteria. The judges were highly impressed by the fantastic loaves they tasted and the wonderful range of loaves on offer. Hearty congratulations to our three winners!
