Poatina - Northern Midlands bakery business Big Bite Dutch Treats has won three awards in the Tasmanian Baking Show. The traditional Dutch treats have won Gold, Silver and Bronze in two different categories.
“Originally we are youth and community workers. We educated ourselves to become bakers. So with virtually no bakers back ground we feel this a huge achievement.” Richard also said it is recognition for their hard work and an extra sales push during these difficult covid times.
Participants at the show were from a variety of big and well known bakeries. Melanie: ‘We drove back from Poatina for the presentation at the end of the day. The jury was still making up their reports. To see how they were taste testing and writing everything down was a bit nerve wrecking. But it all turned out pretty good!’

In the category ‘slices’, Big Bite has won the gold medal with their ‘Coconut Square’. In the category ‘Biscuits’, Big Bite has won Bronze with Stroopwafels (Dutch syrup waffles) and Silver for their Dutch Speculaas biscuits.
