BAKO North Western - Student Bakery Challenge 2014

Following previous successful events, the BAKO student bakery challenge took place on the 14th February in BAKO North Westerns innovation facility The BAKORY.

As a bakery co-operative, the student bakery challenge was set up to introduce BAKO North Western to potential customers of the future. Colleges from the North West area, whom provide professional bakery courses, were invited to participate; allowing students to both challenge their skills and compete against their peers.

The challenge was based across two categories, each picked because of the high level of skill needed to make them perfect:

  • Category 1: 400g Crusty Bloomer
  • Category 2: 4 x Fruited Scones

Students were asked to create their bakes in the comfort of the classroom before the event and were then brought to The BAKORY for the judging to take place.

John Robertshaw, BAKO's Technical Consultant spent the day carefully judging each bake on its individual merit before picking the winners. John commented "It's fantastic to see young bakers of the future competing to such a high level, they have made my job today very difficult".

With judging over, participants were informed who had won; Tameside College performed very well taking a clean sweep in the bloomer category with Sheffield College emulating their success by winning the scone category.
