Annette & Vernette from Wisconsin (2018 STAR BAKERS)


Annette & Vernette



Baking Challenge

Star Baker

How did this baker brighten our summer?

We’re not supposed to have a favorite, but we have to break that rule for Annette & Vernette. Their love for one another, the quality time they spent together, the fact that they submitted over 20 bakes combined deeply moved us and filled us with an entire summer of joy.

Our favorite Wisconsin Twist (pictured)!

Our favorite twist was a literal one – the twist of Vernette’s Herb & Cheese Plaited Loaf, with a side of Annette’s Herb Naan Flatbread. And we’ll admit we love this bake the most because it includes pictures of A & V’s beautiful faces. We wish we could reach in there and give you both hugs! You’re the best Wisconsin twist there is.

A choice quote or piece of Star Baker wisdom:

Annette and Vernette conveyed far-reaching wisdom about how cooking food together and sharing it isn’t just about physical nourishment, it’s about the care work we do for each other that brings crucial emotional and familial nourishment. . . and love. Thank you for bringing your love to our 2018 Great Wisconsin Baking Challenge, Annette and Vernette! You made the whole experience worth it. Love, Your friends at Wisconsin Public Television.
