Hubristic publisher challenges South Cariboo

Christmas Bake Off to take place at the Free Press

With the regular home baking present in the 100 Mile Free Press office, the hot air from the oven seems to have gone to the head of publisher Martina Dopf and other staff members.

“We have the best baking. Believe me. It’s awesome. Nobody makes baking as good as us,” says Dopf.

In their audaciousness, they’re challenging all the other businesses and individuals to a Christmas Bake Off with the best recipes going into the Christmas Greetings issue.

“We’re going to make Christmas baking great again. I have the best recipes and nobody is as precise as me. It will be nothing but my recipes in the Christmas edition.”

Dopf says because she has the most respect for women out of anybody, ever, there will be a $25 entry fee with all proceeds going to the 100 Mile & District Women’s Centre.

“Entries will be accepted from businesses, community groups and individuals. There’s no chance anyone will beat us,” she says. “We’re expecting entries mostly from the South Cariboo but I’m really quite sure there’s nobody in the world who can beat my baking.”

If you’d like to show Dopf how wrong she is, please register in person by Dec. 6 or e-mail

Gordon Ramsay and Jamie Oliver will be invited to judge the contest, but if they have any common sense and pass on the opportunity, some unfortunate local dignitary may be forced to tell her others in town are way better at baking.

Judging will take place on Friday, Dec. 8 at 2 p.m. at the 100 Mile Free Press Office.
