Mich Turner MBE has crowned 'The Kandy Bar' Scottish Baker of the Year 2016 in a glittering ceremony hosted by Scottish Bakers, the association that supports and promotes the interests of Scottish Bakers across the country.
Owner of Award winning Little Venice Cake Company and Judge on ITV’s Britain’s Best Bakery, Mich Turner MBE who has hosted the annual awards since 2013, said “It has given me great pleasure to be involved in the competition again this year. There have been some fantastic entries and all the prizes I have handed out to bakers have been worthy in every way. I wish The Kandy Bar well in the coming year as Scotland’s premier craft baker.”
The Scottish Baker of the Year Awards was devised by Scottish Bakers to raise awareness of the bakery industry in Scotland. With baking enjoying resurgence in our kitchens, on our tv screens and on our book shelves, the Association believed it was time to recognise the skills and expertise of the men and women across Scotland who bake for a living.
Scottish Bakers asked customers across Scotland to vote for their favourite bakery items in the following categories: morning roll, scone, small cake, savoury, biscuit and bread scoring each on appearance, freshness, taste and value for money.
