Award Winning Marmalade At This Weekend’s Winter Farmers Market

22 Mar


I recently had the pleasure of attending an artisan bread making class presented by local artisan bread maker, Chris Brown, of Rise Artisan Bakery.  Chris sells his delicious artisan breads at the Winter Farmers Market held at Nat Bailey Stadium. He will be there in good form this Saturday, March 23rd along with his hot cross buns just in time for Easter.  What is notable is that Chris also makes world class orange Seville marmalade and I do mean world class.  Chris recently entered his marmalade  “The Bitter End” in the World’s Original Marmalade Awards held in Penrith, England.  There were over 1,500 entrants from around the world. Chris made away with the Silver Medal in the Artisan Category.  I can attest that the marmalade is really that good, in my humble opinion.   The award winning marmalade will also be available at this weekend’s Winter Farmers Market at Nat Bailey Stadium 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.   To learn more about Rise Artisan Bakery, check out their Facebook page. Congratulations Chris!

    I’ve wanted to attend the Marmalade awards ever since I heard about it on the BBC R4 Food Programme about 3 years ago. A good bread making class is on my ‘ to do’ list this summer.

      A bread making class was on my ‘to do’ list for a very long time. Now that I’ve done it, I can’t believe how easy it is. This class featured the book Flour Water Salt Yeast, The Fundamentals of Artisan Bread and Pizza by Ken Forkish. Worth a look.
