Festive Bake Off

It seems like everyone is baking these days, it's only a matter of time before someone announces it as the new 'Rock and Roll'
The Driftwood Spars in St Agnes is taking that concept one stage further and has announced the first of it's Seasonal Bake Off's.
Louise Treseder, landlady for the pub said, "We had an apple bake off earlier in the year and really enjoyed it, but we then thought it would make a good seasonal event.
"Christmas flavours differ very greatly from summer flavours and nothing reflects this as much as baking."
The event is being judged by local gourmet expert and food blogger Fiona Crump and Lisa Spratley from Vanillaboo.
"Food is such an important part of our lives, especially at this time of year when families find time to cook and eat together." Said Fiona
"We want people to capture festive flavours in creative and unique ways."
"That could be your secret family recipe for Christmas cake handed down the generations, or it could be an entirely new creation.
"The only stipulation is that is needs to reflect the festive season, how you choose to do that is up to you; sweet or savoury, we don't mind so long as it is baked."
"The competition will be divided into different age groups, under 11, under 16's and over 16's, because we want everyone to be involved." Added Lisa.
"Each age group will be divided into best taste, best festive look and most original use of festive flavours"
The first festive bake will take place at the Driftwood Spars on Saturday, December 15 judging is at 1pm but entries can be dropped off any time between 11 am and 12 noon.
