The 2014 Victorian Baking Show, to be held at the Goulburn Ovens Institute of TAFE, Innoven Building, Shepparton on Saturday, February 22, will feature ‘‘Australia’s Best Easter Bun competition’’.February 13, 2014 4:55am
This competition has been won by Mooroopna and Tatura bakers for the past few years.
‘‘We will also have a gourmet class which will feature entries from artisan bakers whose bread is much more about flavour and texture than outward appearance,’’ Baking Association of Australia Victoria spokesperson John Bowyer said.
‘‘We will certainly show some lovely bread and cakes at our competition, and after judging we welcome the general public to take a look at the entries.’’
Mr Bowyer said the BAA was the Baking Industry peak body supporting bakers and pastry cooks in Victoria and Australia.
‘‘Each year in February, the industry converges on Shepparton to host the Victorian Baking Show and Australia’s Best Hot Cross Bun competition,’’ he said.
‘‘Judging will commence at 11am and conclude at around 4pm.
‘‘The BAA welcomes the public to view the entries from 4pm and talk to judges about what they are looking for in finding Australia’s Best Hot Cross Bun.’’
Admission is free to view the competition entries after the judging.
Mr Bowyer said the official winner of Australia’s Best Hot Cross Bun competition would be announced, along with winners of the Victorian Baking Show, at a gala awards dinner at the Goulburn Valley Hotel, High St, Shepparton on the night.
Tickets for the dinner are $77/person, which includes a two-course meal and pre-dinner drinks.
Dress is smart casual.
‘‘Why not join us for the evening?’’ Mr Bowyer said.
