An artisan bakery in Sherwood is today celebrating after walking away with gold at the prestigious World Bread Awards.
The Bakehouse’s garlic and herb sourdough bread was awarded a gold certificate during the ceremony in London on Tuesday night.
They also were awarded with Bronze overall in the Wholegrain category, a silver certificate for their wholemeal and large farmhouse white; and bronze for their Bakehouse multiseed.
The Bakehouse is the first Nottinghamshire bakery to have made the winners’ final event since the awards’ inception in 2013.
In addition, the bakery secured award certificates for all four of its entries: gold for its garlic and herb sourdough; silver for its wholemeal and large farmhouse white; and bronze for its Bakehouse multiseed.
Owner Craig Poynter said: “The World Bread Awards celebrate the very best of traditional breadmaking, and we are delighted to have secured such a high number of accolades at this prestigious awards.
“To reach the winners’ final was unprecedented, and to then also receive award certificates for every loaf we entered is truly special.
“We’d like to thank our outstanding team who have helped us achieve so much in what is only our first year, and look forward to building on this success into 2018 and beyond.”
