Sean Mahoney and his team from the Bingara Bakehouse won the inaugural New England Perpetual Trophy. This was decided by a combined score for three loaves – a white square, Wholemeal Hitop, and a Hitop fruit loaf.
He gained first place for a White Hitop, which went on to win Champion White Loaf of the Show.He also received first prize for a Pastie. Sean also won second prize for a Wholemeal Loaf, upright, (Hitop), and third for a Wholemeal condensed square.
The show attracted over 90 exhibitors and 416 pieces of product entered for judging. The show was heavily supported by bakeries from throughout the region, as well as from Queensland,the south coast of NSW and surrounding areas. This provided good competition for everyone.
