We believe it was the three musketeers who famously said, all for one and one for all! And although the only swords we own come in the form of baguettes – and rather than horses we have Highland cows – the Harry Gow team can completely relate to these characters.
As many of you will remember, we asked for your votes in the Scottish Baker of the Year’s Customer Choice award and thanks to every single one of you who took the time to do this, we can now call ourselves the winners of the Retail Craft Baker Category. With the support of you, our incredible customers, friends and (in many ways) our extended family, we certainly feel that this is a triumph for us all. Just like the musketeers it's been all for bun and bun for all – or something like that!
We’re also thrilled to have taken home the trophy for Scotland’s best individual cake, the vanilla and raspberry slice… known to its friends as the birthday cake slice! This triumph comes after a gruelling assessment against many other delicious baked goods from 57 skilled bakers across the country. Our fan-favourite slice was judged on appearance, quality of bake and – of course – taste, before being crowned the overall winner in Scotland.
Our other awards from the night include:
The Viennoiserie National Silver Award for our croissants.
The Celebration Cake National Bronze Award for our SBOTY cake.
The Bread (Sourdough) Regional Silver Award for our sourdough loaf.
And finally, the Biscuit Regional Bronze Award for our empire biscuit.
Not that we’re boasting!
But from an extremely proud team at Harry Gow, let us say a final thank you for your continued support – we couldn’t do it without you. We hope to see you all soon to get your hands on some of our award winning craft bakes!
