After the success of last year’s first Locale bake-off, we decided to continue with our international theme this year! The Locale team cracked open their recipe books, and produced an impressive spread of both sweet & savoury dishes. The addition of some new staff members over the last year meant the introduction of Hungarian, Portuguese and Brazilian offerings too!

For sweet dishes we were treated to Irish apple & cinnamon cake, South African koeksisters and Welsh cakes. Joanne, our client services executive, said “I loved the different dishes inspired by various countries. It was such a great selection of sweet and savoury foods!”.

On the savoury side, we had American hickory smoked chicken wings, Hungarian potato & cheese scones, pão de queijo from Brasil and Dan & Jonathan represented the UK with pork & apple sausages rolls and some cheese & caramelised onion scones. Frances, project and client services assistant, said “I don’t know why everyone slated Dan’s sausage rolls, I really liked them!”.

Frances & Jael were crowned the bake-off winners for their excellent Jamaican rum & ginger cakes, and a Portuguese almond tart. Jael said ”I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing and tasting different foods from around the world”.

We can’t wait to see who will take the crown in 2018! Click here to check out last year’s bakes!
