James Allan Competition
James Allan Memorial Trophy 2015
A skills competition for young bakers in Scotland in memory of the late James Allan
About the competition
Entrants will be expected to demonstrate their bread making skills by making a batch (8) of six strand plaited loaves on the day of the competition in the Macphie of Glenbervie Product Applications Bakery.
Entrants are required to provide a product specification for their chosen product and from the 8 produced they will select 3 for the judges to score.
Each candidate will also be required to finish a batch of confectionery products of their choice. They must bring unfinished bases (eg. sponges/ eclairs) of product with them to Macphie where they can use supplied creams, icings and frostings to demonstrate their finishing skills.
The Winner receives the James Allan Memorial Trophy and a week long, all expenses-paid trip to Macphie of Glenbervie, staying in a modern cottage situated on the picturesque Glenbervie estate. He/she will have a fantastic, one-off opportunity to work with a team of baking experts, learning new skills and techniques to help them in their future careers. The first runner up receives £150 bursary and the second runner up receives £75 bursary.
