Following a competition to find Albury’s Undiscovered Baking Legend, Corowa’s Lisa Talbot has been crowned the winner and will feature on the front cover of this year’s Albury Yellow Pages and WhitePages directory along with her children and winning recipe; her family-famous white chocolate chip cookies.
The search for Albury’s best baker exists as a result of a partnership between the Yellow Pages, WhitePages and the New South Wales Country Women’s Association (CWA).
It is a first of its kind venture which will see all Albury directories used to celebrate the phenomenal achievements of the state’s largest volunteer women’s organisation, the CWA of NSW, their love of food and the area’s finest baker.
Lisa Talbot won the hearts and mouths of a panel of judges from the Yellow Pages, White Pages and
CWA of NSW, after a friend entered her into the online competition and demonstrated Lisa’s creativity in baking, as well as best describing why she deserved to win.
CWA of NSW member and baking enthusiast Lisa said she was thrilled to be crowned the winner.
“I was very surprised and totally thrilled to be chosen as Albury’s Undiscovered Baking Legend,” she said.
“This recipe is a Talbot family favourite and my daughters have been baking it with me for over 10 years.
“The thing I love most about cooking is when all of the family are in the kitchen having a go.”
Not only will Lisa feature on the front cover of this year’s Yellow Pages and White Pages co-bound Albury book, but her tantalising white chocolate chip cookies recipe will also appear on the inside front cover for locals to enjoy, alongside details of the work that the CWA of NSW do in the area.
State President of CWA of NSW, Annette Turner said food was a very powerful thing, not only for the obvious reasons, but because it has the ability to unite people.
“As most will know, we’re quite famous for our scones, so to have the opportunity to showcase some of our members and their amazing baking delights on the covers of the Yellow Pages and White Pages books, along with details of our recent work is an incredibly exciting thing,” she said.
