All of the recipes we received were wonderful and it was not easy for us to select the ones we submitted to Red Star for the final decision.
And how did Linda and Kelly from Red Star make the final decision?
"For judging the entries, we looked at content, pictures and their experience using our Platinum yeast.
We loved reading about Judy Stern’s excitement to try the Platinum, and also about her success with the product. Her soft onion rolls were beautiful and would make a great addition to a holiday dinner or for leftover sandwiches.
Lynn Teichman made a recipe using whole wheat flour, which we loved. She had incredibly detailed photos of the bread making process and we liked how she showed two different ways to make the breads.
Diane Krutsch had nice comparison photos of rolls made with Platinum and with another yeast. The Platinum rolls looked so light and fluffy!"
We thank everyone who entered – the quality of the recipes and the accompanying pictures were terrific. We have some very good bakers out there. KosherEye thinks that every entry was a winner. We have posted the three winning recipes, and plan to post more in the coming weeks.
