Baking and Making Competition

Tue 14 March 2017 3.00pm

Brimsmore Gardens, Tintinhull Road, Yeovil

The YCAA are holding another fun fundraising event with the Gardens Group at Brimsmore Apple Tree Restaurant. After the huge success of our summer Bake Off and Tea Party it was suggested that we should also celebrate the seasons of autumn and winter. We started off thinking about chutney in all its forms, then someone said "What about Marmalade?", and, of course, someone else added that we would need some good bread to go with them both. Now we have this brilliant event with three categories where everyone is invited to enter. The entry fee for each item in any category is £5, and the YCAA, as always, promises to use its funds to support young people studying the arts and for promoting the arts in our area.

If you are a home bread maker, then there are opportunities for tradional bakes, world breads and bread using alternative grains. Have a go at making bread to go with your homemade chutney and some tangy marmalade. Making and baking any of these will tickle your taste buds as you make them, filling your home with tantalising aromas. Mmmmm!

Entry forms should be at Brimsmore with the £5 entry fee by 6pm on Monday 6th March.

On the day you can take your entries to Brimsmore from 9am up until judging at 3pm. The Apple Tree Restaurant and Farm shop will be delighted to welcome you and you can enjoy all that they offer whilst watching our esteemed judge, Lesley Waters, do the judging. There will be a raffle, and some wonderful prizes, one of which will be a voucher from the Evershot Bakery, who are masters at making artisan bread, and others from Brimsmore and the YCAA.

The event is open from 2pm on Tuesday 14th March, if you want to have something to eat and drink as you watch the fun unfolding, with judging by Lesley Waters taking place at 3pm. Make sure you are there to collect your prize!

This will be the final event in the Brimsmore celebrations of their 25th Anniversary from 1st - 14th March.
