Hobbit Bake-Off

An opportunity for creativity of a different kind, and to show off our Hobbit side, the Oxonmoot Bake-Off is a popular event on the Saturday lunch time.

Members bring along their “bakes” (both sweet and savory); some compete for the title of Master Baker (with the runner-up gaining recognition as “Nokes” – read Smith of Wooton Major if you don’t recognise the reference) and the best junior being awarded “Prentice”. The rest of us simply enjoy sharing our bakes and contributing to the consumption.
