Real Bread rules at the Small Food Awards

The top three prizes in the bread category of the inaugural Small Food Awards were all won by Real Bread bakers.

Launched by Sustain member the School of Artisan Food and Real Bread Campaign supporter Virtuous Bread in October 2016, the awards celebrate food and drink micro-entrepreneurs.

The motivation was to celebrate producers who can struggle to get the recognition they deserve.

Judged by SAF baking diploma tutor Wayne Caddy, who tasted loaves from twenty entrants, the bread category awards went to the following Real Bread Campaign supporters:

1st: White Sourdough by Patrick Bowden’s Indigo Bakes
2nd: Olive and Onion Sourdough by Darrin Romp’s Hampshire Bread Company
3rd: Swedish Rye Bread by Gaye Whitwam’s Sticky Mitts Bread

The awards also recognised micro-producers of chocolate, charcuterie, cheese, cider and viennoiserie.
