An amateur baker from Edinburgh will see his biscuit creations on the supermarket shelves, after cooking his way to the top of a national competition.
Rory Sutherland has been crowned the winner of the Border Biscuits Big Baking Bonanza which means his chocolate orange thins will go on sale in Asda stores across Scotland from January.
The 21-year-old, who works as an airline customer services agent, realised his knack for baking when he discovered he had an allergy to eggs, which prevented him baking traditional cakes.
Swapping buns for biscuits, he began experimenting with flavours, creating a chocolate orange thin for the competition, beating off competition from shortlisted flavours including white chocolate, macadamia and almond cookies to coconut and lime zingers.
His winning recipe was praised for its "creativity, innovation and delicious taste" by an expert panel including UK baking bloggers, representatives from Asda and the Border Biscuits baking team.
Winning the competition, Rory received a £2000 cash prize and will be able to visit the Border Biscuits factory to watch his recipe being recreated before hitting the shelves.
Speaking of his winning creation Rory said: “I’m thrilled to win the Big Baking Bonanza and I can’t believe my recipe has been selected from all of the other entries.
"I thought my Chocolate Orange Thins recipe was unique and it uses on-trend flavours.
"My friends and family are big fans of it, so I’m really pleased that I have been chosen as the winner.”
