School caterer flexes her mussels to win School Bake off Competition

School caterer flexes her mussels to win School Bake off Competition

The Bestway Batleys Big School Bake Off reached its climax recently as six school chefs displayed their bakery skills to be crowned Bake Off Champion of the Year.

The event, which was held in North Berwick High School, saw cooks from East Lothian, Stirling, North Lanarkshire, Gateshead and Redcar Councils demonstrate their baking expertise in front of a panel of judges, chaired by head development chef from Unilever, Andy Lagor, whose Stork brand supported the competition.

The top accolade was awarded to Lynda Hogg of Musselburgh Primary School in East Lothian who received a Chef Jacket, a signed “Jo Wheatley” cookbook, framed copy of the recipe and photo of her winning cake, plus the ‘Big School Bake Off’ trophy.

Steve Irons, senior contracts manager at Bestway Batleys Foodservice was delighted with the response, “With the Big School Bake Off we wanted to inject a little bit of fun for school caterers who often don’t get the chance to show their culinary flair. We were really impressed by the standard of baking - most of which would give Mary Berry a run for her money – and would like to congratulate Lynda on winning the trophy. Our thanks go to all the entrants and also to Unilever Food Solutions and their Stork brand for their tremendous support”.
