BBC Searches for the Young Baker of the Year

BAKO North Western is working with the BBC Three to find the Young Baker of the Year, looking for 16-25 year olds who are up for a challenge and keen to show off their skills. Once the entrants have been whittled down 100 will be invited to an audition where they will face a written test and an interview panel of industry experts to ensure they have the knowledge and potential to take the national title.

Twenty will be picked to complete a hands-on skills test and judges will then decide which four will go forward to the filming of the show in September. The final four will face challenges based on the skills of their trade. Andy Hodgson, Head of Sales & Marketing at BAKO North Western comments "this is a great opportunity for any young baker to make a name for themselves, and as a leading wholesaler in bakery goods we are always looking for ways to help the industry, especially those currently entering into a career within it."

Young Talent of the Year is now in its third series and has previously unearthed young and talented butchers, fishmongers, plumbers and chefs. This year it has five new categories: carpenters, farmers, gardeners, tailors and bakers.
