Budding bakers are being asked to rise to the challenge.

As part of the Wellington One a Plate festival, baking clubs are being encouraged to compete against each other for the chance to enter a city-wide bake off to find Wellington's ultimate baker.

A panel of judges, including Ruth Pretty, will be tasked with selecting the best baked goods and, therefore, the city's top baker.

Wellington On a Plate co-director Sarah Meikle said groups of friends were encouraged to get together to mix up something tasty.

"A bake club can be a group of friends, colleagues, study buddies or even your sports team," said Ms Meikle.

Clubs will compete in three baking challenges over three consecutive weeks during next month's On A Plate festival.
 
"Challenges will be issued on a Thursday, but each bake club can select their baking day according to what suits their group, as long as it takes place within the week [the challenge is issued]," said Ms Meikle.

Prizes up for grabs include $1000 worth of groceries, $2500 of kitchen appliances and a KitchenAid Mixer valued at $995.

Registrations close July 12 at 5pm. See VisaWellingtonOnaPlate.com.

Wellington On a Plate runs from August 10-26.
