Compete in Topsfield Fair’s Fleischmann’s Yeast Bread Baking Contest

August 2011-

Don’t miss the 2011 Fleischmann’s Yeast “Bake for the Cure” at the fair, a nationwide recipe contest that celebrates bread baking and raises breast cancer awareness.

There’s $400 in cash prizes at Topsfield Fair, plus $3000 in national grand prizes. Topsfield Fair this year operates Friday September, 30th through Monday October, 10th 2011. For each entry nationwide, ACH Food Companies Inc. also donates $10 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure on behalf of contestants and its Fleischmann’s Yeast brand.

Make any flavor or shape of baked good using any type of Fleischmann’s Yeast. Themes and decorative presentations are encouraged. There’s a main category (calling for any yeast bread) and a second “Whole Grain Bread” category.

The main category awards $150 for first place, $75 for second and $50 for third. The “Whole Grain” category has a $100 top prize and a new $50 runner-up prize.

Judges at each fair choose the local winning recipes based on flavor (40%), texture (20%), appearance (20%) and creativity (20%). Each person can enter once per category. Contestants of all ages are welcome.

From all 1st place winning recipes, ACH Test Kitchens will pick one grand prize winning recipe from each of three regions: Northern, Central and Southern. These national grand prize winners will be awarded in January 2012.
