Ditty takes home Baker of the Year gong

08 September, 2011

Robert Ditty took the title of Baker of the Year, sponsored by Vandemoortele at the 2011 Baking Industry Awards last night.

This year’s Brazilian carnival-themed event, which took place at Park Lane Hilton, was hosted by well-known TV presenter Richard Madeley.

Guests enjoyed a three-course dinner, with entertainment from cabaret act Brazilian Fantasy, before letting their hair down on the dance floor, where band The Real Thing played a selection of their hits, or else at the casino tables.

For more on the event and a full list of the winners and finalists, with photos from the night, see the next issue of British Baker, out tomorrow (9 September).
