On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, the 2023 Partridges World Chelsea Bun Awards to be judged by Lady Sophie Windsor and Jane Asher.
World Chelsea Bun Awards
This year’s World Chelsea Bun Awards will be judged by Lady Sophie Windsor, also known as Sophie Winkleman, and Jane Asher, an actress and cake expert who both support The Children’s Surgery Foundation. John Shepherd, proprietor of Partridges Fine Foods, and Munther Haddad, Chairman of The Children’s Surgery Foundation and Senior Consultant Paediatric and Neonatal Surgeon, will serve as additional judges.
At Partridges in Chelsea, there will be both an Instagram Competition and a Live Tasting Competition this year for the fifth annual bake-off. Bakers are encouraged to contribute to The Children’s Surgery Foundation, the chosen charity, despite the fact that entry to either competition is free.
The Children’s Surgery Foundation
The Beam Campaign, which was recently launched by the Children’s Surgery Foundation, aims to make intravenous access more effective and less intimidating for young patients and their families. The funds raised from the World Chelsea Bun Awards will be used to support this campaign, which aims to acquire an ultrasound vein finder for each UK paediatric surgical department.
Jane Asher is very fond of this wonderful charity: It does a great deal to reduce the potential discomfort and distress that may result from children having to undergo the trauma of surgery. She hopes that many of you will participate in baking some delicious Chelsea Buns, which is a delightful way to raise money for us to do more.
Chelsea buns are a type of currant bun that are traditionally made from a thick dough made with yeast and flavored with cinnamon, lemon peel, or other spices.
Sir Richard Shepherd established Partridges, an independent, family-owned fine food store and Royal Warrant Holder, on May 25, 1972. Its original slogan, “Good things for the larder,” can still be found on Sloane Street in Chelsea.
Partridges launched the first Chelsea Bun Gin last year in honor of the Chelsea Bun’s 50th anniversary and inspiration from the bun. It is rich and fruity, with flavors of oranges, sultanas, and allspice. These flavors are perfectly balanced by juniper notes, warm touches of clove and cinnamon, and juniper notes to make a truly distinctive Chelsea Bun Gin drink.
Enter The Instagram Competition
All bakers need to do to enter the Instagram Competition is make some Chelsea Buns, take a picture of them, and either post the picture to Instagram with the hashtag #worldchelseabunawards and tag @world.chelsea.bun.awards or email it to https://www.worldchelseabunawards.com/. The competition will end at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 17, and the winner will receive a Partridges Hamper filled with treats
Bakers are required to bring or mail their Chelsea Buns to Partridges, 2-5 Duke of York Square, Chelsea, London SW3 4LY, by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 19th, in order to participate in the Live Tasting Competition. Chelsea Buns can be entered into one of three categories: minors (those under 18); Grown-ups and Proficient Pastry specialists.
The overall winner will be dubbed “The Supreme Champion Chelsea Bun Baker 2023,” and they will also receive a certificate, a bespoke Partridges hamper, and an Initially London World Chelsea Bun Awards Winners Apron. At Partridges in Duke of York Square on Saturday, May 20, Lady Sophie Windsor, John Shepherd, and Munther Haddad will taste and evaluate the Chelsea Buns. After that, Jane Asher will be judging the buns at The Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond. From April 29 to June 17 in 2023, Jane will play the lead in Somerset Maugham’s comedy The Circle.
In both competitions, buns will be judged on how appetizing they look, how original the recipe is, and how they are presented or plated.
