Last night, Mayfield Farm Bakery was named ‘Essex Bakery of the Year’ at the Essex Food and Drink Awards for the second year. Congratulations to the finalists; Ravens Bakery, Ingatestone and Lilleys, Walton on the Naze.
The Essex Bakery of the Year award is sponsored by Marriage’s. After the public voted for their favourite local bakery, an independent judge visited the finalists to score their product range and presentation, staff knowledge and welcome, and overall shop ambience. A tasting panel then tried out lots of bread and cakes from the finalist bakeries (it’s a tough job!) to decide the overall winner.
The Essex Food and Drink Awards celebrate our county’s food and drink, with other award categories including Chef of the Year, Best Essex Food Product and Best Small and Best Large Restaurant.
