Approximately 400 bread lovers gathered on Thursday, September 29 at the French Embassy to attend the grand finale of the contest featuring four finalist bakeries: Bread Furst, Dog Tag Bakery, Fresh Baguette and Silva’s Patisserie.

The difficult task of tasting and judging the baguettes to choose the winners was shared by a jury of professionals and the audience.

Dog Tag Bakery and Silva’s Patisserie didn’t do so badly themselves, judging by the people constantly crowding their stands.
