Real Bread rules! (again)

The fifth annual World Bread Awards podium was again dominated by Real Bread Campaign supporters, who won in 10 of the 19 categories and included the overall winner.

Showing the skill needed to take a few simple, natural ingredients and elevate them to something beyond an everyday staple by crafting truly great Real Bread, as only a genuine artisan baker can, the overall winner was Lee Smith of Bexhill Farm Kitchen and Poppyseed Bakery for his white tin loaf.

Also proving that artificial additives are unnecessary to craft award-winning bread, this year’s batch of Campaign supporters named as category winners was:

  • Baladee (Real Bread and flatbread)
  • Bexhill Farm Kitchen and Poppyseed Bakery (Great British white and sourdough)
  • Holtwhites Bakery (Baguette)
  • Karmabread (Showstopper)
  • Rex Bakery (Malt bread)
  • Patisserie Mark Bennett (Wholegrain and speciality sweet)
  • Salt Bakehouse (Ciabatta)

Campaign supporters were also named runner up in ten categories and many more harvested gold, silver and bronze awards for their loaves.
