Tomorrow, Friday, August 20, 2010 is one of our favorite events of the year! It’s time again for the Bob’s Home-Baked Bread Contest at the Clackamas County Fair.
Every great baker knows that great bread starts with superb ingredients. Start your recipe for this contest with Bob’s Red Mill flours, cereals or grains and you will be well on your way to baking a blue ribbon loaf! Lori Sobelson, Program Director, and Matt Cox, Marketing Manager, will be on hand to personally judge all bread entries.
Bread should be delivered to the judging pavilion between 10 a.m. and noon. Judging begins at noon. Everyone who enters a loaf of bread will receive free admission to the Clackamas County Fair on the day of the contest.
If you’re located near Canby Oregon, be sure to come by and submit your best loaf for the chance to win cash prizes. If you’re not ready to enter a loaf tomorrow, you still have more than a week to prepare your recipe for the Bob’s $1,200 Best Home-Baked Bread Contest. That event, held at the State Fairgrounds in Salem Oregon will be on August 31st, 2010.
