CREATING the famous Yorkshire peak of Ingleborough in cake was always going to be a challenge – but the competitors in our first ever baking competition more than rose to it.
Nine bakers took part in the contest, all bringing in their carefully crafted creations. After some tough decision making by Michael Vanheste, head tutor at Michelin starred Northcote in Langho, and Country Harvest owner Mike Clark the winner was announced as mother-of-three Sandra Lund from Litton in Craven.
Sandra only agreed to take part in the competition because her mum Sheila Brown loves Country Harvest. “It’s the first competition I have ever entered and I only did it because of my mum. I can’t believe I have won, I only bake for my family and do family birthday cakes,” she said. Her winning cake was a light Victoria sponge with fantastic jam which head judge Michael Vanheste described as ‘stunning’.
Other competitors included Pauline Beadle, of Ingleton, who made a chocolate cake with her niece Helen Wilson. Another strong contender was Fiona Barrett, of Kendal, whose elaborate cake was made from three layers: ginger bread, Victoria sandwich and topped with a nutty meringue. And Judith Woolley, who lives next door to Country Harvest, brought her Jaffa Cake version of the 2,372ft mountain to the judging, alongside her husband and children. “It’s my first competition too, I am more of a cook than a baker,” she said. But, inspired by BBC1’s Great British Bake Off she created ‘Jaffaborough’, making the jelly out of fresh oranges which attracted positive comments from the judges. And there was a torrone made from chocolate, butter and almond from Ingleton’s John Dickinson and three small ginger sponges made by Dorothy Blair from Sedbergh.
Michael Vanheste said the competition, sponsored by Wessex Mill Flours, involved the two things he liked most – cake and fellwalking. “The winning cake is amazing, I adore it!” he said
Sandra received a trophy and £100 in prize money.
Ingleborough, which overlooks Country Harvest’s coffee shop, is the second biggest mountain in Yorkshire. Together with Pen y gent and Whernside it forms the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks range.
AN exclusive evening celebrating the best of Christmas food and drink was held on November 10th.
The Twelve Plates of Christmas food tasting event featured more than 70 delicious food and drink specialities so customers could decide exactly what they wanted to buy for the festive period. From fantastic cheeses to olives, pates, cooked meats, turkey, smoked fish, luxury chutneys and wines through to cakes, puds, liqueurs and chocolates – all were on offer.
“Everyone here at Country Harvest really loves Christmas and we always try to make it as special for our customers as possible. Not only do we stock a wide range of gifts, clothes and decorations but our Food Hall is also filled with festive treats and we have found our customers often like to have the chance to try before they buy. We hold monthly Tuesday tastings but for Christmas we thought it would be fun to let people try more than 70 of the delicious products we both sell and make in store. We held this event a couple of years ago and it was a huge success so we predict tickets will sell quickly,” said Country Harvest owner Mike Clark.
Tickets for the evening were £20 each.
ARE you at the peak of your baking powers…or do you need to whip up some enthusiasm when it comes to making cakes?
This month at Country Harvest we are launching our very first baking competition. As millions settle down to watch the new series of BBC1’s Great British Bake Off, we are calling on bakers of all ages and levels of experience to take part in our competition. The twist is that each cake has to resemble the mighty peak of Ingleborough, which Country Harvest’s coffee shop looks out on.
The main event will be the baking competition on September 27th where entrants bring in their finished cakes (shaped like Ingleborough) ready for a panel to taste and decide the winner. The look, taste and recipe will all be taken into account and the winner will receive £100 in cash.
We are also planning an additional online competition where people are invited to email a photograph of their cake (shaped like Ingleborough) or send it via Facebook or Twitter. The winner, who will be chosen by an expert panel at their Ingleborough Bake Off in September, will receive an Afternoon Tea for two at Country Harvest.
“Our customers are always complimenting us on our cakes in the coffee shop which looks out at Ingleborough. So it made sense to have a baking competition inspired by the peak which can be seen from miles around. Most of the team at Country Harvest love Great British Bake Off so we thought this would be a bit of fun where our customers could get involved and even win some money! We hope the event in September will be a lively one where all the entrants can enjoy meeting and chatting with other likeminded bakers…and perhaps trying a slice or two of cake as well,” said Steve West, shop manager.
All pictures for the competition, sponsored by Wessex Mill Flours, must be received by 2pm on Monday, September 26th and if you wish to take part in the Ingleborough Bake Off competition register your name in store, ring 015242 42223 or email Buy Phentermine 37.5 White Blue Specks
GREAT British Bake Off contestant Howard Middleton will be passing on his baking skills at a cake making demonstration at Country Harvest in September.
The baker hit the headlines when his custard was ‘stolen’ by another contestant on the hit show in 2013.
Howard, a former council worker in Sheffield, will be demonstrating his cake making skills at Country Harvest at 5.30pm on Tuesday, September 13. Tickets costing £7.50 (including the chance to try the cake with a nice cup of tea) are available from Country Harvest or by ringing 015242 42223.
