Hello! Have 2 questions related to the Festival of Breads contest.

In the rolls category, it says you may submit a recipe for sweet dough or yeast-raised lean. Not sure what specifically yeast-raised lean would be. Sorry, I'm a bread newbie! Could it be a savory roll?

Also - Will the judging be done when the bread/rolls are relatively fresh from the oven??

Thanks so much!!!


Thanks for your question. 

Lean is a french bread, or low- to no-fat recipe, like a French Roll. Sweet would be a higher sugar, higher fat recipe, such as a cinnamon roll. 

Also, judging will be done shortly after removal from the oven. 

Best of luck!
