Booths Win at The British Pie Awards
Written on March 21st, 2019
Recently we entered a number of our Booths pies into the prestigious British Pie Awards and we’re chuffed to say we won quite a few! We’re very proud of our range of Booths brand products, as each range is sourced with care; they’re often created from scratch and they’re always hand selected, tasted and tested by our in house team of experts.
From The British Pie Awards:
“The Pie is one of the icons of British cuisine. Savoury or sweet, hot or cold, the British eat millions of them every year. These Awards are a national celebration of British Pies in all their varieties and they have been running since 2009. The Awards are held in Melton Mowbray, the Rural Capital of Food, and hosted by the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association.
For the purposes of the Awards a pie is defined as the following: ‘A Pie is deemed to be a filling wholly encased in pastry and baked’.
Aims of the award:
- To celebrate the heritage of the British Pie
- To protect and promote regional specialities
- To recognise the craft of bakers, butchers and other producers
- To support British produce
