Triple win for Campaign supporter M’s Bakery.
Having won the Plain Authentic Sourdough category, a pain au levain crafted by Real Bread Campaign supporter M’s Bakery in Bournemouth has been crowned overall winner in the Tiptree World Bread Awards with Brook Food 2022.
The bakery, owned by Marta Nagy and Istvan Nadhazi, was also named People’s Choice, the only category decided by public nominations. It’s the second time that a loaf made by the bakery has been crowned overall winner, a feat they previously achieved in 2018 with their Real Bread Campaign category-winning French country sourdough.
Loaves made by Campaign supporter Graham Kinnear were placed first, second and third in the Home Baker – Open category, the first time that all three places in a category were taken by the same baker(y). Fellow Campaign supporter Sourdough Dave won the Authentic Sourdough with Added Ingredients category with a toasted sesame sourdough.
The Real Bread Campaign category, sponsored by Shipton Mill, was won by Hearth Bakery CIC, which has created a Real Bread Map listing. Other category winners on our map are Blake's Kitchen, Borislav Petrov and Stir Bakery.
