Welcome to the only Awarding and Regulatory body for Artisan Bakers in Scotland .

DESIGN | CREATE | INNOVATE

This award system is the only one of its kind in scotland. There is not an Awarding body for Baking but many for Master Bakers. This scheme aims to award the outstanding Baking that exists in scotland and acts as a fantastic online guide to tourists and local people alike to the very best establishments that produce quality Baking.

There will be no bad reviews as only the establishments that are Awarded the SBA(Scottish Baking Award)will be featured, therefore acting as a genuine guide. These establishments will be issued with their Award which can be displayed in their premises, signfying good Baking. If you dont have an Award then you either have not been Assessed or failed to meet Assessment criteria. This scheme will cleverly create healthy competition within Scotlands Baking industry and improve the level of Baking for our customers. Many many places advertise baking today but how many can actually say its excellent. This is their aim -to achieve a higher standard within Scotland and to stand alone in the world for excellent Baking no matter where you go in Scotland.

Ali Abercrombie @ Cairn o Mohr 2016 Outright winner

Ali AbercrombieI absolutely love this time of the year, not least for delivering the great news of another worthy winner in Scotland. Alison Abercrombie at AliBob in Errol was absolutely worthy of our 2016 Baker of the year .

The reason for this is the amount of work , sweat and tears that Alison puts in to making this quirky little Cafe in the middle of Cairn o Mhor winery a success. I first met Alison a few years ago and loved the passion and dedication that this unstoppable lady puts in to everything she does. The tears for me today she said, was because this Trophy was all about the Baking and nothing else, this is solely her domain , Her achievement .

Alison has a brilliant team at AliBob that makes this Cafe what it is today and Husband Bob takes the reigns front of house . When you see a family run business with family putting in the time then you just know you are in for a treat . Bob has a lovely manner with the customers and this rubs of on the staff . Alison can bake brilliantly and sadly i didnt get to try some of her famous cheese scones this time or any of the other goodies in the glass display cabinet but next time !!

This years decision was the hardest with 6 brilliantly talented finalists and such great support for each other even in the end. The world of Artisan baking is a great one to be involved in and i am honoured to be a part of some of Scotlands best Artisan bakers every year . Alison Abercrombie the most sincere congratulations from one that knows talent !
