2021 National Brown Bread Baking Competition finalists, from top: Siobhan Hassett, Louise Taylor, Martin Malone, and this year’s winner Aisling O’Toole
Scenes from the final of the 2021 National Brown Bread Baking Competition, sponsored by Aldi. Held in association with the National Ploughing Association and The Irish Country Women’s Association, baker Aisling O’Toole took home a €15,000 prize and will have her bread on sale in Aldi stores for twelve months later this year.
Our money was on Louise with her mountainy crust. Better luck next year.
