A Berwick baker has risen to the top of Coles’ apprentice bakers in Australia.
Jackson Taylor won the category as well as $1000 in the supermarket’s inaugural bakery awards after starting the apprentice program in January.
He and other finalists had a cook-off across a range of sweet and savoury foods – as well as serving up their own unique treat.
The creations were judged on appearance, texture, aroma and taste.
Jackson cooked up a lamington jam scroll based on it being a big hit with his colleagues at Coles Parkhill Junction store.
“I began the apprenticeship earlier this year because I’m a hands-on person and have enjoyed working in the bakery and learning from the other bakers,” he said.
“It was a great feeling to be nominated and to be named a finalist shows that I’m on the right track in the early stages of my apprenticeship.”
Store manager David Visser praised Jackson’s teamwork and passion for his craft.
“The wacky lamington scrolls were a team favourite and we’re all so excited for him.”
Meanwhile, Samantha Shores, of the Casey Central store, was recognised as Coles’ best trade qualified baker in the state.
She cooked up a Nutella pull-apart during the finals.
