2014 Young Bread Baker of the Year

PRESS RELEASE - 24th February 2014



Judging for the top young bread baker in New Zealand took place in Auckland last week with Aidan Horner from Quality Bakers in Nelson and Bree Scott from Lyttleton Bakery being declared joint winners of the 2014 "Young Bread Baker of the Year" competition.

In winning this award, Aidan and Bree demonstrated to the judges ability in three key areas: practical baking, theoretical knowledge of baking technology, and presentation of research into current baking industry trends in salt reduction.  Their practical skills in particular were impressive.

As winners of this year’s award, Aidan and Bree will each have the opportunity to broaden their industry knowledge and experience through a $7,000 research grant.

The "Young Bread Baker of the Year" award is sponsored by the NZ Association of Bakers and is designed to promote excellence in people emerging from their training.
