BEST BAKING CONTEST
By: Sylvie Reitman
It’s that time of year, for the best baking contest, when fairs abound and true pie-eating contests based-upon the local fruit, becomes the place to be and to be seen. What better way to celebrate the coming of autumn and the fairwell to summer, in our festive minds, than a Baking Contest?! Taking our minds away from all that we had done and focus upon what’s before us and how we can better tantalize our tastebuds.
The best baking contest we found is happening right now! The prizes are more than a ribbon, and more than local bragging rights. Some of the prizes include a trip to New York and a spot on the Food Network. Please don’t let that intimidate you! We are all equal. We each have a chance. Think of the deliciousness you bake and serve; think of the reactions; think of the requests.
The categories Pillsbury chose are great! Their chosen categories are definitely an aspect that helps them to be the best baking contest.
The contest finale is coming up, September 12, 2018. There’s still time! Just don’t dally. Take a moment, have a cuppa tea, relax and think. What would you submit to the best baking contest? Honestly. We’ve all been glued to the Food Network and the UK Baking shows, now you may participate.
An aspect of the Food Network which makes it so popular, is that it is host relatable. And every good host tells stories. This contest is no different. You MUST have a story to accompany your recipe. So humanize your food and speak of the story of the dish!
Think about it… what’s your most amazing flour-using dish?
Here are the best baking contest categories.
