We’re very excited to be welcoming Bake Off star, Glenn Cosby, returning to this year’s Exeter Food Festival with his very own feature: Glenn Cosby’s Westcountry Bakery! Inspired by all that is delicious about Westcountry baking, Glenn will be demonstrating his own special take on tea time classics as well as bringing back to life long lost traditional recipes. 4 lucky baking enthusiasts can win the chance to bake with Glenn in a special Exeter Food Festival bake-off!

Round 1 post or tweet us a photo of your best bake to show Glenn your skills to go through to the next round – enter by 10am on 6th March. 

Round 2 – those selected will be asked to submit a Westcountry Afternoon Tea menu to include a sandwich, scone and family favourite bake of your choice for Glenn to judge – enter by 10am on 23rd March.
