It’s been a great year for our pies and we are delighted that they have picked up plenty of wonderful awards!
Here’s a bit about them:
It gives us great honour to announce that we have just been awarded SUPREME CHAMPION at the 2020 British Pie Awards with our Steak & Stilton Pie Crowned PIE of PIES. We will update this page soon, once we have gathered our photos and information.
The British Pie Awards have become an institution for pastry-connoisseurs country-wide. The annual event sees hundreds of pie-makers gather for a celebration and competition of this British culinary favourite. Held each year in Melton Mowbray, the British Pie Awards have a selection of the most knowledgeable figures in the industry on-hand, presiding over the proceedings.
These guys know their pies and our classic, Steak and Kidney pie has twice before been crowned class Champion. We were previously dubbed SUPREME CHAMPION in 2018. In 2016 in Melton Mowbray we were crowned CHAMPION in FOUR separate award categories. Amongst hundreds of top quality entries, another four of our pies finished in the top 3 of their respective categories.
The Guild of Fine Foods’ Great Taste Awards are considered the most trusted and recognised of food and drink awards. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food worldand the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer. Since first entering these awards in 2013 we have won a combination of over 15 stars over a selection of our products including our luxury Christmas pudding!
Naturally we were honoured when both our Steak & Ale and Steak & Stilton pies were awarded 3 stars. From nearly 10,000 entrants only 125 were awarded 3 stars at the Great Taste Awards.
Our Steak & Stilton pie featured in the Guild of Fine Foods’ Top 50 foods in Britain.
