When Jordans Cereals decided to hold a Great British Bake Off-style competition, Jordans Mill was the obvious choice of venue. Having produced flour for the Jordan family business for over 150 years Jordans Mill had all the right ingredients to rise to the occasion.

A private event for Jordans Cereals’ staff based in Biggleswade took place at Jordans Mill last week. Edd Kimber, winner of BBC 2’s The Great British Bake Off in 2010 hosted the event where guests took part in a baking competition to see who peaked and who flopped.

There were two winning teams who impressed the Great British Bake Off winner with their high standards of baking on the night.

Edd Kimber said: “"It was great to spend the evening with such an enthusiastic (and competitive) team of bakers! Everyone threw themselves into the challenges, which were to make granola bars and do some show-stopping cake decorating, and I was so impressed with everyone's efforts. It was cracking evening all-round."

As well as showing off their skills in the kitchen, guests were also allowed to take off their aprons and were treated to supper in the Riverside Cafe with views across the River Ivel.

Don't forget to pick up a special edition of the Biggleswade Chronicle this week, as there's an 8-page supplement dedicated to telling the story of Jordans Mill and the Jordan family from the 1890s to present day. There are lots of archive photos and interesting tales for readers, finishing with a lovely interview with Mrs Jordan.
