The Big Thame Bake

Friday, June 12

The Big Thame Bake is looking for talented bakers everywhere to rise to the occasion at this year’s Thame Food Festival on 26th September.

"With the launch of the Big Thame Bake, we're throwing down the oven glove to bakers everywhere," says food writer and Big Thame Bake organiser Jane Hornby. "We've come up with ten great categories to stretch your abilities and give you the chance to show us what you can do, whether you're an enthusiastic beginner or expert home baker."

“All we ask is a £5 donation for each entry, with all the money going to the Thame Food Bank and Thame Food Festival, a not-for-profit event run for the local community – as well as your best bakes, of course!”
