Over the summer I’ve been telling you about Brita’s Campaign and competition – the aim was to discover cooks, bakers and food makers from across the country who shared BRITA’s passion for making great food as it ought to be.
Each of the competition entrants used filtered water to get the best taste possible and on 31st July a live cook off was held where 10 finalists were invited to cook for a panel of five expert judges – Rebecca from delicious magazine, Felicity from Big Feastival, Fiona from the Kids’ Cookery School, Lucy from BRITA and Karen from Lavender and Lovage.
After a hard days judging three winners were chosen who will now go on to be able to sell their produce at the Big Feastival, and these are……
At 15 Emily was the youngest person to enter the competition. Emily used to run her own baking website, Emily’s Home Bakes, but gave it up to concentrate on her GCSE’s. The judges were impressed with the bespoke cupcakes she designed for each of the judges, especially a miniature BRITA water jug made out of icing.
Alex’s gluten-free brownies
Alex created his gluten-free brownies after discovering that there was a lack of sweet treats available for his gluten intolerant sister. He’s passionate about people enjoying food and wanted to get the best out of his ingredients by using BRITA filtered water. The judges loved the moist chocolate centre of the brownies, as well as the interesting addition of peanut butter.
Rekha’s samosas are handcrafted, from the spices to the pastry, to ensure a perfect parcel of taste. Her creations are a favorite amongst her local farmers markets as people love her Indian cooking style. She’s a perfectionist cook and ensures a golden glow by using the best ingredients, including BRITA filtered water.
The three winners received a BRITA tap to enable them to continue to discover the results of cooking with filtered water and they used a BRITA Talori tap at the cook-off. BRITA taps are the most convenient way to get filtered water in the kitchen.
Each winner will now be able to follow their dreams and sell their creations at the Big Feastival, supported by BRITA at the brand’s stand, for one day between 31st August and 1st September. So if you’re heading over to the festival – make sure you check them out!
