Mary Berry would have been so proud …. as staff at The Arora staged their own Bake Off!
First prize for their amazing Arora bed creation went to Sarah and Marie from Housekeeping who won afternoon tea at the Radisson Edwardian for their joint effort of an Arora Bed accompanied with an icing swan.
In second place was Linzi from the nights team who won a cook book for her red velvet cake and third prize of kitchen utensils went to Jane the General Manager for her chocolate cake.
However, Jane gave up her third place spot and allowed Amanda, the F&B Manager to jump to third for her football cake.
Organiser and judge, Assistant Front of House Manager, John Chadwick, is now planning a calendar of competitions over the coming months.
He said: “A heads up for the next competition, it will take place in July and the brief for this one is pastry. It can be sweet or savoury but the pastry has to be homemade. Any filling can be used, shape and size and again must be inventive. Scores will be based on taste, creativity, execution, texture and difficulty to make.
“So let the flour see the butter!”
John’s lines might be cheesy but he thinks they are grate!
