Deli Dish of the Day : Classic Victoria Sponge

At Dartmouth Food Festival, it’s not all about the professional chefs. This year we are once again hosting a competition to find Dartmouth’s best home cooks. Paul Greenfield and Alan Price, who run Smith Street Deli have set a challenge to discover the best home-made Victoria sponge cake.

Sat 21 October
12:00 pm- 2:00 pm
Community Cafe, Market Square, Dartmouth, Devon. TQ6 9QF VIEW ON MAP


Bring your cake anytime between 12 and 2pm to the Community Cafe in the corner of the Old Market Square on Saturday October 21st.   

Remember to label your cake with your name, and mobile/home telephone number.  If you wish, you can include a sentence or two about why you consider yours to be ‘classic’.

We are looking for a perfect sponge (think texture, flavour, not too moist or too dry), and a filling which keeps its place and character once the actual cake has been assembled.

Judging: We have three judges this year – two catering specialists from our local South Devon College and our own local cake making expert Andrew Eversleigh from the Smith Street Deli.

Judging will take place at 3.00 pm and the winner announced at 4.00 pm.

You can collect your cake and/or plate any time between 4 and 4.30 pm. Un-collected cakes will be donated to Dartmouth Caring.

A fabulous foodie hamper will be awarded for each day’s winner.
