Scottish Bread Championship 2024 Results

It’s a wrap. The Scottish Bread Championship was held at Bowhouse in Fife, this last weekend in February, during Real Bread week. The one and only of its kind, The Scottish Bread Championship, sponsored by The Edinburgh Bakers Trust Scottish Food Guide and Scotland The Bread brings together Real Bread makers from across the nation. Unique to this Championship, entrants could deliver their loaves (judged behind closed doors) then head for a cuppa and networking with fellow entrants before enjoying free time in Fife: visiting friends, walking in nature, exploring the region’s culture… or perhaps even indulging in wild swimming, a popular pastime along Fife’s shoreline! There were pre-arranged loaf “drop-off” options but many bakers car-shared and spent the weekend in Fife. Friday supper offered further opportunities to meet over good food and bread conversations; a precursor to the Scottish Festival of Real Bread extravaganza and Awards Ceremony the following day, also at Bowhouse. 

With eight classes ranging from Classic Sourdoughs to imaginative entries reflecting our diverse food cultures, flamboyant patisserie and The People’s Bread, promoting an everyday nutritious, tasty and achievable family loaf, there was something for everyone and a plethora of fabulous flavours for the judges to appraise. Suffice to say they had an intense day. Details of Judging Panel here.

Supreme Champion: GOLD: Spelt Sourdough from Station House Bakery, Haddington

Reserve Champion: GOLD: Tortano (Potato Crown) from Wild Hearth Bakery, Comrie


… with sincere thanks to Douglas, an Edinburgh Bakers Trustee, who has so beautifully displayed the results on the link for all to see. Bakers will receive full feedback from me this week & should there be any queries you know where to find me. We do our very best – I doubt that AI could do better but we are only human!

The Scottish Bread Championship was co-founded in 2017 and run by Wendy Barrie and Andrew Whitley, Scottish Food Guide and Scotland The Bread respectively, and also sponsored by  The Edinburgh Bakers Trust since 2022.
