It’s new! And it’s exciting! It’s class 133..!
This year, a new “Free From” competition class is open. It’s Class 133. We believe we are the first flower show in the UK to have a “Free From” category.
What is Free From? “Free From” refers to foods free from certain allergens or substances that some individuals may need to avoid due to allergies, intolerances, or dietary restrictions, such as gluten, dairy, nuts, sugar etc.
So what can be entered? All foods are eligible, from baking, cooking, jams, bread and many more – they must have at least one allergy or dietary ingredient substituted or left out. You might want to make dietary jam, gluten-free bread or a sugar and egg-free Victoria sponge. So how do we judge it? Because this is the first year and there will be a range of food items submitted, the judges will, for this year only, choose a winner based on the two criteria of presentation and taste. So who’s up for this challenge?
Please note that this new class does not appear on the previously published Show Schedule, so when submitting your Entry Form, please refer to Class 133 and, to help the judges, briefly explain what is omitted, substituted and/or added.
