I have been thrilled to win a number of awards as I have made my way along my bread journey. Every one has surprised and delighted me and not one do i take for granted. However, the best reward comes from seeing people enjoying my bread or the sheer delight of someone seeing their first ever loaf being taken from the oven. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. Below are some of my proud moments.

World Bread Awards - 2013
This is the award of which I am probably most proud and which really kickstarted my bread life. When I entered I was just baking for friends and family. To be shortlisted completely shocked me.
