The International Biscuit Festival, Knoxville, Tenn., is accepting recipe submissions for the 2013 International Biscuit Festival Biscuit Bake Off, to be held May 18 in downtown Knoxville.
The competition features four categories: Sweet Biscuits, Savory Biscuits, Special Biscuits and Student Biscuits. The Special category is for those biscuits that are “over the top and incredibly imaginative,” according to the IBF. The Student category features the next generation of bakers and is for entrants 18 and younger.
Three finalists will be chosen for each category, and those bakers will be invited to bake before a panel of celebrity judges and an audience of biscuit lovers. The grand prize winner will be selected from the winners of each of the four categories.
“We have had a tremendously creative selection of biscuit entries for the first two years of this fun, fun festival,” says Chris Kahn, chair of the 2013 Biscuit Bake Off. “We anticipate the 2013 season of competition to be even more original, outrageous and delicious.”
Bake Off applications are available online at Biscuitfest.com. Submissions will be accepted until midnight on April 22. Finalists will be notified and scheduled for the live competition at the festival in Knoxville.
