The Great Tilia Bake Off is here and there are lots of fun prices to be won!

Like so many people we love to cook and love to watch the Great British Bake Off show. While we know that all those TV bakers are good we believe our customers are even better, hence The Great Tilia Bake Off.

From October 7th to November 20th you have a chance to enter your own recipe creations (or an adapted one) in one of two categories -Savoury Appetizers/Dips or Sweet Treats. Your recipe must feature one of our culinary items (spice blends, teas, vinegars, honeys, mulling spice or hot chocolate) and be created by you.




Recipes will be short listed down to the top 3 recipes in each category for the finals and then the dishes will be featured at this year’s Ladies Night Celebration on Monday November 25/19 where the event attendees will have a chance to vote on the winners. Our young bakers have a chance to shine during this event as well. Children under 12 can enter their own category and win a special kids themed culinary pack. We will also have a random prize draws for all the entries received, so even if you don’t make the finals don’t despair, you still have a chance to win.

To make it even easier for you to be part of the fun, we are happy to give out free samples of any of our culinary products for you to use in your recipe.


There will be 2 Grand Prizes awarded, one for the best appetizer or savoury dip and one for the best sweet treat awarded to the individuals whose recipes were voted as the top in each category (vote takes place November 25, 2019 at Tilia). The Grand Prize package includes an all day cooking class with local food experts for the winner and a friend, and a culinary gift pack valued at $200. Runner-up participants who reach the finals and the winner of the children’s category will receive a culinary gift pack valued at $100. During the course of the contest (October 7 through November 15, 2019) we will be having weekly draws each Saturday for mini culinary gift packs. The weekly draw is open to anyone who submits a recipe during the contest time.




The contest is open to amateur bakers of all ages, except for employees of Tilia and their immediate families.
