Testbourne Bakeoff - Round 1
The bakers had a brilliant start to The Great Testbourne Bakeoff Competition. The first challenge was to make 8 identical sausage rolls using handmade shortcrust pastry demonstrating their presentation skills. The results were fantastic!
Marc Willams, owner of The Greyhound Pub, Overton, was on hand to help judge. Marc was a head chef for nearly 20 years, ranging from industrial catering, to large pubs and hotels so we are vey lucky to have his expertise on the judging panel.
The Star Baker for this week, who pastry was outstanding, flaky and full of flavour, was Gracie Lomax – well done Gracie!
Special mention must go to Lottie McIver and Dimeji Kehinde for their presentation and also to Lacey Reynolds for her sausage meat to pastry ratio.
Next week is a showstopper week. The challenge is to bake and present 6 decorated cupcakes.
