Jane Beedle was a Great British Bake Off finalist in 2016 and the winner of the 2018 Christmas Bake Off.
She has lived in the county for most of my adult life and went to the University of Kent and later Hadlow College. Since moving to Faversham in 2018, she has run baking classes at Brogdale, the Kent home of the National Fruit Collection as well as at Monkshill Farm, near Whitstable.
Jane loves living in the county and having a wealth of great produce on her doorstep alongside Kent producers delivering incredible food of amazing quality.
She would like all Farm Shop / Deli of the Year entrants to consider the local produce/ingredients they offer and be aware of the miles some foods have travelled.
Jane will be judging the Deli / Farm Shop of the Year category.
