a LEADING Nelson baker will be bidding to win the county finals of the British Sandwich Designer of the Year in Ashton-under-Lyne this morning.

Laura Oddie, from W.H. Oddies Bakery in Nelson, has entered two sandwiches in the Universal Meats chicken category and one in the Warburtons gluten free category.

A total of 17 competitors are set to compete in the regional final.

Each competitor will be asked to make their sandwich creation in front of a panel of judges drawn from the industry. The sandwiches in each category must be made using a specified sponsor’s product.

It is a requirement of the competition that each of the recipes must use one of the sponsors’ ingredients and thus show their ability to be creative within defined limits. The winner of each category will then go through to compete at the national final in London in May.
