Popular television programmes such as Master Chef and The Great British Bake Off have been the catalyst – or many would say, the inspiration – of a renewed enthusiasm and interest in the art of cooking, baking and culinary expertise.
You may bake cakes at home, entertain families and friends on a regular basis or you have a specialist interest in Guernsey’s indigenous local dishes. All are eligible for the Cookery section that has classes for varying age groups and cover all aspects of baking and preserves from popular Guernsey dishes, bread, cake and pastry making to the highly intricate work of cake decorating.
Entries for the preserve classes are welcomed from those who love making jam, jellies, marmalade, curds and sauces and there are quirky classes such as “Housewives’ Choice” and “Gentlemen’s Choice”. For those whose are of interest are items that are particular to afternoon tea, there are Scones & Biscuits and Pastry classes. There are three sections for children – 10 years and under, 11-14 years and 15-17 years.
Certificates are awarded to all entries that achieve 75 points or more and there are several trophies available to winners in various classes.
