Professional bakers are encouraged to register for the 4th Annual America’s Best Raisin Bread Contest, hosted by the California Raisin Marketing Board.
Calling all professional bakers-now’s your chance to show off those baking skills.
Professional bakers are encouraged to register for the 4th Annual America’s Best Raisin Bread Contest. Hosted by the California Raisin Marketing Board, Fresno, Calif., this contest is designed to discover the best California raisin breads in North America and to recognize outstanding bakers and formulas that are relevant to today's real-world baking industry.
The contest is broken down into four categories-artisan, commercial, breakfast and student-and the Top 9 professional finalists from each sector will be chosen to compete in the final bake-off. Of those 27 professional finalists, prizes will be awarded to three winners from each professional category. Those nine winners, along with three winners from the student category, will partake in an all-expenses-paid trip to California, including tours of the San Joaquin Valley, Yosemite Valley and the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley.
The final bake-off judging and awards ceremony will take place Oct. 13-15 at the American Institute of Baking in Manhattan, Kan.
