Our NYS Bakers Fishing Trip was held on Monday, August 24th.  Once again Bakers boarded the Ocean Eagle V at Pier 5 in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.  It was a beautiful day, the morning full of promises of great catches, fabulous food and catching not only fish but catching up with old friends!  There's nothing like the ocean breezes and a little fishing competition to add to the fun of asking everyone what they've been up to!  

Some were just plain worn out from all the Fun in the Sun!

And some said good by to the sea gulls until next year!
We'll dream of being with you again while we toil in our kitchens!  Until then, Au Revoir!

RBA New York Roadshow


On Friday, September 18, 2015  Artists from around the globe competed for top honors (and great prizes!) in a day-long challenge.   Given the theme "homeland", ten teams of two, each representing their own country had 7 hours to create a tiered or sculpted cake made of totally edible products.
First Prize: $10,000; Second Prize: $3,500; Third Prize: $1,500

The New York State Association of Manufacturing Retail Bakers was proud to help sponsor Charles Tola of Lulu's Bakery in Fresh Meadows and Joe Settepani of Bruno Bakery in Staten Island.  
Their fabulous sculpted cake took 2nd prize in this spectacular event!  



      3-1/2 cups fresh blueberries or 1 bag (1 lb.) frozen blueberries
                        1 tablespoon cornstarch
                      2 tablespoons lemon juice
           1 cup all-purpose flour
        3/4 cup turbinado (raw) sugar or granulated sugar, divided
           1 teaspoon baking powder
                   1/4 teaspoon salt
                   1/2 cup milk
           3 tablespoons butter, melted
                   3/4 cup boiling water
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread blueberries in ungreased 8 or 9-inch square baking dish or pan. Sprinkle with cornstarch; drizzle with lemon juice; set aside. In medium bowl, combine flour, 1/2 cup of the sugar, the baking powder and salt. Add milk and butter; stir just until combined (not smooth.) Drop 9 mounds of dough onto blueberries. Pour boiling water over dough and fruit. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Bake until biscuits are golden brown and blueberries are bubbly, 45 to 50 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
