We are very proud and excited because we have found out that our current apprentice Sally has been awarded a prestigious national award from the Worshipful Company of Bakers, to travel on a scholarship in later this month to a French baking school for a week of intensive training on Sourdough breads.
This is the second accolade received by our trainees. Amber, who you will recognise as the face of our Bramhall Shop, was awarded the James Allen prize for the bakery apprentice of the year in 2013 and spent a week at a training centre in Scotland.
That’s 2 out of 2 apprentices winning national awards to date!
We can’t wait to hear about all of the skills and ideas she learns while in France – watch this space for an update and I’m sure there will be some new ideas on the shelf too…
