What’s more, they are asking home cooks to share Bramley recipes with their own unique twist on the Bramley Apple Facebook page. Recipes can be sweet or savoury with an emphasis on favourites such as crumbles and pies made special or presented in an unusual way. Budding cooks are given free creative control, with the only criteria being that Bramley apples must play a starring role in the recipe. All shortlisted winners will receive a £100 voucher with the grand prize for the champion being an all expenses paid weekend course at a top cookery school, as well as a goody bag of Phil Vickery and Bramley apple merchandise.
The Bramley is rightly recognised by professional chefs and home cooks alike as the best apple for cooking.
