The USA's leading awards celebrating the bread community
We regard our judges as at the heart of the prestige and integrity of Tiptree World Bread Awards with IBIE.
We have been honored over the years that so many great names have given their support, time and expertise. From Zachary Golper, James Beard Foundation nominee of Bien Cuit bakery, to David and Tracey Zabar of Zabars, to Dana Cowin, legendary past editor of Food & Wine – and many more.
Our judges range from bakers and retailers, to top food writers and chefs. All of them embrace baking in their professional life and have many years, even decades, of experience. Each year, the panel is carefully crafted to maintain this incredible wealth of knowledge.
Stephen Hallam is our Chair of Judges.
