THE GREAT NEW ZEALAND BREAD BAKE OFF

Richard Waite with Murray Turley and Mat Keys of Farmers Mill

Farmers Mill, New Zealand’s only grower-owned flour mill, set out this year to find the best bread in the country. The competition drew accomplished bakers from around the country and finished with a live event, where eight top bakers baked head-to-head for the title of best bread.
Farmers Mill is extremely proud to announce that the winner was from a supermarket. Richard Waite from Melody’s New World in Palmerston North wooed all judges with his Swiss fig and walnut loaf. The loaf had an attractive presentation along with a dense fruitful centre, crusty shell and was produced with the addition of an overnight fermented dough.
