(NAPSA) – Dust off your recipe box and put on your thinking apron: America’s oldest flour company is bringing a new baking competition for home bakers to the nation.
The National Festival of Breads, sponsored by King Arthur Flour and Kansas Wheat, is a celebration of ‘the staff of life,’ a tribute to the age-old tradition of home baking and to the role bread plays in a healthy lifestyle.
Any home baker age 18 or older with an original yeasted bread recipe can enter the contest. Contest categories include Ethnic Breads, Rolls, Time-Saving and Easy Breads, and Whole Grain Breads.
Eight finalists will bake their recipes for judges at the National Festival of Breads competition in Wichita, Kan., in June 2009. One lucky home baker will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to King Arthur Flour’s Baking Education Center in Norwich, Vt.
