BRIGHTON’S Best Bakehouse has shown its quality once again, with one of its apprentices taking out a major award in the recent Excellence in Baking Awards in Sydney.
The annual competition, which the Baking Association of Australia runs, is open to all baking and pastry apprentices in the country and attracts apprentices from bakeries across Australia.
“Brighton’s Best Bakehouse was excited to have one of its apprentices, Crystal Stewart, participating in the Excellence in Baking competition against apprentices from around the country,” said owner Scott Donaghy.
After six hours of preparing and baking designated products under strict guidelines and stressful conditions, Hobart-based Apprentice Crystal Stewart was announced at the presentation dinner as Australian Apprentice Pastry Cook of the year.
“We were ecstatic about the news,” Scott said.
“Winning this competition is highly regarded by the Baking Industry. Competition is the goal of many professionals and, as a result, the standard of competition was high, with the award hotly contested.
“Crystal has worked extremely hard over the last twelve months to prepare for the competition, and we are extremely proud of what she has achieved.”
