Baking with Melanie

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


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.

This year with the massive Success of the 2014 Scottish Baking Awards ,we are introducing another brand New Category to add to the 14 we already have. There has long been a gap in the market for Hotels in Scotland that produce an excellent Food and Drink menu to be able to follow on with a great Dessert/ High Tea/ Baking/ Patisserie . This part of the menu too often lets them down. We at the Scottish Baking Awards aim to highlight the Hotels in Scotland that are managing to achieve every course as good as the last . Melanie Andrews - Founder/Director of The Scottish Baking Awards ,  Professional Chef and Masterbaker will be carrying out each and every review . This website will be re-designed over the next week to focus on this great new category .
