In this category each participant had to display 6 types of Breads (1 Bread loaf, 1 Health Bread, 2 types of Bread rolls & 2 Breakfast Breads) along with an edible centre piece made of Salt Dough or Bread Dough. Our concept was to promote the use of millets for everyday use. A showpiece was made from dead dough and salt dough to portray kernels of wheat and millets which has been used in making our products.
The theme was named as - Le Boulanger Sain (The Healthy Baker). Millets in particular has been used in different ways. Millet flour was used as an ingredient in the health bread “Ezekiel”. The bread rolls “The Birdie” & “Crinkle Rolls” have a topping of millets in different forms. The Breakfast Roll “Looped” has a filling of millets and the “Red Velvet Croissant” has been dusted with millet flour. The bread loaf “Rustique” has millets as the topping.
The concept was to enlighten the new health & nutritious bakery trends emerging these days with the use of Millets and producing a variety of Breads which are high in their nutritional values for the new trendy health conscious generation. This innovative concept was well appreciated by the judging panel at SICC and marked yet another proud moment for CAI as we emerged as a winner in a National level Competition.
