Highly Commended at British Bakers

I still cannot believe that in less than a week of being shortlisted at Food Matters Live, our humble Coconut Flat Bread Rolls received Highly Commended for Gluten Free category at Britain's Best Loaf Competition by British Bakers.

However, it was smoothly done; there was great communication from the team, thus, it was clear how and when submit your breads and how the virtual competition is ran.
